Today's episode welcomes Romina Kostich from Skilled Strong to talk all about how running turned from a passion into a career after she started to injure herself while training. She became fascinated by the knowledge the physical therapists brought to her rehab sessions, noticing things like tension merely upon sight, and ultimately she ended up working for big box gyms before starting her own business. Skilled Strong focuses on utilizing strength training for runners, taking into account each client's personal fitness and injury history and other factors including lifestyle and age as opposed to the same handful of exercises shoved into the average runner's face via magazines and blog posts.
You'll hear us discuss:
- Differences between strength for runners and the running coaches.
- How ribcage joints move and how to breathe.
- The biggest gaps that coaches miss to help improve runners.
