@WomenSportsWeek Special - Pilates for Runners - by Tori Norris, A Balanced Life
In @WomenSportsWeek - @WSNet will be focusing on three things - CORE conditioning (with 'A Balanced Life' consultancy) - becuase CORE is key for ALL Womens/girls sports. Employment in SPORT/FITNess & Event/Ticketing promotion. Here's today's 'CORE' story from A Balanced Life
Whether you’re running for fun, fitness, or to be fast, efficiency is key. You need your body to be at it’s best using the right muscles and just the right amount of energy to meet your personal goal. Having a strong core plays an important part in translating the power of the legs to propelling the entire body forward through space and helps to reduce injuries that runners can be plagued by such as IT band or Anterior Cruciate Ligament issues.

To make the most from your run you need a fine balance of strength in the different areas of your core, including abdominals, spinal muscles and glutes. More from A Balanced Life
