Hey, everyone. This is Angelique Millis, and today we're going to talk about exercises to promote leg strength for runners. So it's really important for runners to do other exercises to tone their legs besides running and today I'm going to talk about three of my favorite ones. We're going to talk about squats, we're going to talk about lunges and also deadlifts. So for your squats you're going to begin with your feet about shoulder distance apart, you're going to sit straight back down, imagine that you are sitting in a chair and you are going to drive yourself up through the heels until you come to a standing position. Make sure on this one that you don't put your knees over your toes. For your deadlifts this is another exercise particularly great for toning and improving the hamstrings. You're going to grab your weights, lower down, tipping forward at the hip, using your hamstrings. When you reach to the top you want to stand up nice and tall and squeeze your glutes as tight as you can. Make sure not to put any pressure in the lower back. The third exercises are lunges. Lunges are also great for toning your quads. You want to put your hands on your hips, feet again are going to be hip distance apart and you're going to take a step to the right with your right leg, you're going to lower your knee down to the floor. You're going to stand back up and you're going to switch to the other side.
