To be a faster runner or joggler, you’ll need to do more than just run. Sure, you’ll need to do MOSTLY running but improvements in your speed and recovery time can be gained if you add a few non-running exercises to the mix.
One of the best exercises for a joggler is 30 minutes of straight juggling. Not only does it improve your fitness level but it will also work muscles that you don’t use while running and will improve hand eye coordination. You’ll even gain confidence in your juggling ability. Ideally, you’ll do this once a day or 5 times a week. But minimally, you should do 2 sessions of straight juggling each week in addition to your joggling activities.
This ACE GetFit website gives a list of other useful workouts that you should add to your routine if you want to improve your joggling performance.
For jogglers, the following would be most appropriate.
1. Core workout
2. Total body workout
3. Shoulders & Arms workout
If you want to be a better runner, juggler, or joggler you need to do more than just joggling. Add these workouts to your routine and watch the significant improvement in your fitness level.
