Elite Abs? Yes, Thank You.

I thought these exercises would be awesome to share. Strong abs = strong runner.
The rest of the set can be found here.


  1. Yes, please. I could handle those abs. And arms. And legs. :)

  2. Oooh I'm going to do this tomorrow, I've been looking for a good ab workout.

    Do you have any advice for shin splints or pain in the knees??

  3. amric1490--Julia and I both had shin splints back in the day. Our coach would make us walk the first 5 minutes of our runs in order to warm up. We didn't like that but did it anyway. Hahaha. So definitely warm up, and stretch your calves A LOT. Tight calves can lead to shin splints. And for your knee pain, it can be a million different things, but I say keep your quads, IT band, and hamstrings well stretched (stretch after they are warm). That will do wonders. Yoga helps a lot, too.

  4. ditto molly! those are all things i would recommend.

    i also completely got rid of shin splints when i switched to new shoes with proper support.
