The Benefits of Trail Running

By Pete Williams

Man was not meant to run on concrete, asphalt and other non-forgiving surfaces. That’s why it’s always a good idea for runners to give their joints a break and get out on the trails. Not only is it more relaxing – and less dangerous – it’s usually more fun. We explored the benefits of trail running recently on ABC Action News.

Drills to Improve Speed, Agility, and Quickness

By Pete Williams

How often do you train for speed, agility, and quickness? Even if you do interval training, you’re not necessarily becoming quicker and more agile, moving in all three planes of motion.

In this video, which we shot for ABC Action News with the help of some of my training group friends, we show two simple drills you can do to improve your “SAQ.” The 5-10-5 drill is a shuttle run that might look familiar if you follow the NFL combine. The box drill incorporates running forward, backward, and laterally, as well as cariocas, which really open the hips.

Try incorporating some SAQ into your routine at least once a week.
