Trail + ultra training is way more than just running.

Reduce your risk of injury. Feel stable and confident in the mountains. Become a stronger trail runner with our conditioning exercises.

Here’s how to do these conditioning + strength exercises for trail runners.

Basic tips:

Listen to your body. Don’t overexert yourself, and only do all the repetitions once you feel ready.

If you need a break, take one. Pause a little bit between each exercise; the most important thing is to execute the movements correctly. This helps avoid fatigue and stress, which are things that can spell injury later down the line.

The only way to develop results from conditioning exercises is to do your routine every week. It takes dedication—strengthening our bodies isn’t a one or two-time deal. 

Enjoy the process, and remind yourself why you do these exercises: to support you when you’re exploring the great outdoors.
