What's this got to do with running?

I'm trying to figure out what on earth you do with an implement like that.

C'mon, give us a clue!

at a very loose guess it will be for stretching*

Your gums and improves running

Tags: exercises, gums, training, improvement running,

Want to know how to do exercises with rubber bands? So why should I serve? How often do them?. We show with a video explaining everything so you do not leave any doubt in the execution of these exercises, the better your marks quickly

<!-- TEXTOS -->

<!-- IMAGENES DEL PARRAFO --><!-- TEXTOS -->The exercises with "rubbers" are equivalent to the weight. They serve to strengthen and balance the muscle groups of the legs. This improves performance significantly, allow the stalemate and prevent many injuries, especially the knees.

The "rubber" can be of two types: cylindrical latex, diameter and thickness of 1.5 cm and are purchased in stores or orthopedic medical products. A minimum of three meters in length and no more than four meters. Once you have the tires make a loop at each end, hanging rope type, to serve as a grip and put your feet.

By doing the exercise should make adequate resistance to strengthen muscle. Enabling you to properly finish the total number of repetitions, just reaching the final force. Continue next

Do not lean forward to pick up the rubber to put it in the neck, it can be harmful to the back. We must fully flex the legs and arms help to place on the neck.

The first effects when they begin to make the tires are very grateful for the runners. Sensations are lost in running, a bit swollen leg muscles, the shoots are slower, competing pede worse and gain some weight. But this is normal. Once this work is completely assimilated the good feelings back, the shooting and the series are much faster than before, with the same effort and the results begin to improve markedly.

How many days are a week?
At week 2 days should be made of rubber, in periods of load (about 6 or 8 weeks); a day average weekly periods (4 to 6 weeks) and none in the competitive or near the target.

How do I include in the training?
They are made after the shooting. Another option is to run in a time of day (morning) and weights in another (late afternoon).

How long will I continue with the tires?
The tires can be up to four weeks before the main objective. In the weeks that it is better not to make them compete

Does that make then straight as in the case of weights?
It would be highly positive progressive make 4 straight, with wide stride and hip high, over a distance of approximately 40 ms.

Are there different hardness rubber? What?
There are several types of rubber-flat or cylindrical. I prefer the latter, they offer more resistance and you can choose between different thicknesses and therefore of variable resistance. For distance runners are ideal to have a thickness of 1.5 cm in diameter, or thickness equal to the index finger of a normal person. With three feet long enough

WTF !!!!

I think I have just stumbled into the twilight zone !

Is it compatible to slopes? Do you serve the same purpose?
The gums and the slopes are compatible and complementary, as with the first working force and the second power. But they must be made on different days.

What will I earn if I do?
When performed regularly on a schedule and prevents a large proportion of muscle injuries, it greatly improves the strength and muscle power with it, allowing much more to advance the runners and train rhythms alive as much effort. Also possible to support heavier loads and mileage in training without feeling discomfort or muscle fatigue. As a result of this improvement is spectacular marks. They are the ideal formula to break the deadlock.

Sorry about my translation, but very, very FUNNY answers!!!! Thanks

Again, where can I buy something like this, please

Have to confess I've never come across this kind of thing! But I guess it's similar to Therabands, it's all resistence type stuff, innit?

I think gums = ginormous rubber bands.

Slopes - no idea.
