Each weekend in 2021, we worked closely with certified personal trainers to give you a variety of workouts that help strengthen your entire body, improve your stride, increase your endurance, and build your confidence. Together, we’ve covered it all from basic routines to more intense workouts that will help you on and off the roads and trails.

And the thing you loved most? Core workouts that help you improve your overall performance. Having a strong core can help prevent injury, improve your balance, and increase your stability, so it’s not shocking that endurance athletes flock to various types of core workouts. Don’t know where to start if you want to up your strength training in 2022? This 4-move workout was our most popular video this year, and that’s because these basic—yet effective—moves can help even the most advanced runner.

But it wasn’t all about getting a stronger core. While upper-body exercises are often forgotten, this year you took a moment to focus on mobility and posture with these shoulder exercises. You also took on a few challenges this year like this total body workout with a TRX suspension trainer.
