Editorial Reviews

This DVD contains over 80 minutes of content and over 100 different exercises designed to improve strength, prevent injury and help athletes run faster. The vast majority of the exercises require no equipment and can be done in a gym, on the track or even in a basement. The Preventive Exercises are designed to prevent injury in areas that are most problematic for runners, such as the plantar fascia, the patellar tendon and the iliotibial band. While we can't guarantee that these exercises will prevent these injuries, there is no doubt that anyone who adds these exercises to his or her weekly training regimen has a better chance of running injury free.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.'s standard return policy will apply.

3.0 out of 5 stars No Full Workout March 10, 2010
Verified Purchase
The video is a demonstration of various exercises. If you want a workout that you can follow along -- then you need to constantly hit the pause button, do your reps, then hit play to go to the next exercise. The exercises are very good, but I wanted a workout that I could mindlessly follow along. It is annoying to hit pause and try to figure out how many reps to do. It would have been easy for the producers of this video to give various follow-along workouts. Maybe next time.

This video is for the athletic.
My goal was to rehab an injured knee.
There are many excellent preventitive exercises here.
Great core strengthening exercises.
Warning- the pedestal exercises will kick your butt.
This video is geared for the fit athletic type, not beginners.
Make sure you download the videos onto your I-POD.
It's like having your own personal trainer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic November 30, 2008
This set of exercises is exactly what every coach should be doing with their athletes. If you want to get a strong stable core, these exercises are perfect. You dont have to be a college level superstar to get use out of these routines.

if you are a runner, athlete, coach or just want to get in better "shape" buy this dvd

...requires more research on your part. These video exercises are perfect if you want to sculpt your body for a lean physique. However, keep in mind that this video course does not teach you how to prepare for a 5-K, 10K, half marathon or a full marathon. That requires more research on your part. The good news is, you can find those videos on Youtube. In fact, you may be able to find many of these workouts on Youtube (with different names of course). Even though there are over 100 exercises in this program, they are basically different methods (with different names) to sculpt the whole body. For instance, there are over 10 different exercises to sculpting the abdominal muscles and the back. It is basically 2-3 workouts but emphasized with different variations and modifications. This video is taught by coach Christian Smith, a former elite track & field runner from K-State. Overall, I find it very helpful for prerun and postrun exercises.

Do I recommend it? Not really. Most of these exercises you can easily find online.
