Bodyweight Workout For Runners: No Equipment Required

If you’re looking for an at-home bodyweight workout for runners, you’re in the right place – I’ve put together a 20 minute sequence which requires NO equipment.

You can follow this 20 minute workout in your bedroom, living room, or kitchen – wherever you have enough room to lie down.

You can do it in your runners or just in a pair of shorts – whatever suits you.

I’ve hand-picked each exercise in this workout for runners to help in three areas:

  • strengthening
  • injury prevention
  • avoiding injury

Investing just 20 minutes in one day can really help move the needle in all 3 of these areas!

So without further ado, kick off your slippers, throw on some shorts, and get ready for the 20-minute at-home bodyweight workout!

Bodyweight Workout for Runners: Exercises explained

The workout starts off with a warm-up using the Surya Namaskar sequence (it means sun salutations).

Anyone who has some yoga experience will be familiar with it – it’s a great all-body loosener and gets the blood flowing without too much effort.

I attended a Crossfit class for a year where this was the warm-up every single day.

    • Hey Cassie!
      You can do it daily, as long as you aren’t strugglng with the exercises or with recovery!

      If you start to feel sore, take a day off every 3-4 days!

      Thanks
      Thomas
