Take this clever treadmill-based strength circuit designed by Alexia Clark, a personal trainer in Scottsdale, Arizona, which uses the side handles of the machine to target two areas your run workout doesn't—your upper body and abs. It's efficiency in its finest form: You get a two-for-one workout that will help raise your heart rate, improve your posture, and build lean muscle from head to toe, all in one spot and without other equipment. Just do these three moves at the start and finish of your regularly scheduled trot. Complete as many reps of the first exercise as you can in 40 seconds, rest for 20 seconds, then move on to the next. Repeat for three total sets.
Stand facing away from the treadmill dashboard, then grasp the handles to lift your feet off the belt(a). Keeping your arms straight, engage your core to pull your knees up to your chest(b). Reverse the movement to return to start. That's one rep.
This is how to perfect your running form:
