Are You Strong Enough? 5 Strength Evaluation Tests for Runners

Do you have the muscle strength it takes to run in good form? 

As natural and easy as the motion of running seems, running in good form actually takes a whole lot of muscle strength and coordination. Many runners tend to rely on quad muscles to power their stride, but the powerhouse muscles we should be tapping into are our core and glutes. A strong, activated core and glutes help to stabilize the pelvis and control movements in our arms and legs — all leading to an efficient stride and beautiful form.
