  • Adductor (Groin) Stretch for Runners & Triathletes
      Compared to multidirectional sports for example rugby, basketball, hockey or netball, with all their turning, cutting and changes of direction, the repetitive action of running is very linear.

  • Running Technique: Stride Width, Shin Splints & ITB Syndrome
    Stride width varies so much from runner to runner, and is one of the subtleties of running form that is difficult to re-train by simply trying to ‘run differently’… most people over-correct!
