LET THE TRIVIA BEGIN:

  1. When performing soft tissue work, you should:
    1. Give each muscle group special attention.
    2. Work each muscle group until you feel like you are getting improved blood flow to the area.
    3. Work the tissues until you achieve increased irritation.
    4. Both a and b.
  2. True or False: You should avoid consuming carbohydrates before and after a run to improve your overall performance.
  3. Any strength program for better running would be incomplete without addressing abdominal muscles. Name three exercises you can perform to improve core strength.

We hope that you found the information provided over the last several months to be valuable for your run training.  As physical therapists, our goal is to treat people, not problems! Education with an emphasis on prevention is an integral part of therapy at Baudry.
