Strengthen Your Legs for Downhill Running

In this week’s new video I demonstrate a simple exercise to help build leg strength for running downhill.

So many runners find the hardest part of running a hilly course to be the downhill sections… The knees and quadriceps often take a hammering.

Give these tips a try to help your body better stand-up to the demands of downhill running 🙂

  1. How often should one do this exercise starting out? You said 5-6 sets of 30 seconds each. Should this be done twice a week? More often?
    If one is also incorporating running downhill in training should they still continue doing this exercise and if so, should they decrease how often they do it?
    Thanks!
