Prehab : Eliminate small tweaks & pains while bulletproofing your body

Program Schedule

It’s time to get things started with some resistance training & power walking! From tempo work to unilateral exercises to core work, there is no doubt you’ll be feeling those leg muscles working.

There is an emphasis on calf and lateral hip strengthening, which are both very important muscles for runners. More importantly, the single leg exercise agenda continues to be a focus to set you up for success with running next week!

It’s time to run! This week we introduce interval running to safely expose your body to the demands of running. Meanwhile, we introduce a low-impact plyometric exercise coupled with progressive calf & core strengthening exercises.

Eccentric calf & hip strength is emphasized as the demands of running increase, the goal is 2 miles this week with each running session if you’re up for it! Meanwhile, we begin to really target the hip flexors & the arch of our foot with lots of standing single leg exercises!

We’re progressing the running intervals by getting to a 1:1 work-to-rest ratio for the first time. Meanwhile, we’re increasing the volume of plyometric work to keep your tendons strong in your lower body!

Getting closer to tolerating a 5k! This week we add the adductor muscle group to the core work along with more challenging hip flexor strengthening!

We’re adding a speed component and multiple planes of movement to the plyometric exercises this week. More importantly, we’re adding weights to our standing, walking exercises to get the best bang for our buck; bone-health!

You’ve made it! Time to crush your 5Ks and challenge yourself as much as you can with the resistance training program. Pick & choose some of your favorite exercises and be sure to do these 2-3x/week as you continue with your running fitness journey!

Welcome to the [P]rehab Family

Over the past six years as Doctors of Physical Therapy, we have seen a plethora of patients with different kinds of aches, pains, and injuries. The interesting fact was that most of these issues could have been managed or even prevented if people had a solution to quality exercise & education information they could access anywhere, at any time.

Thus, to give power & health back to the people, we pioneered the anti-barrier solution using the latest evidence-based research, technology, and our clinical experience. Our programs are safe & effective; they feature preventative rehabilitation exercises & education that teach you how to get out of pain, avoid injury, and optimize your health.

What Our Members Say

Their programs are better than the PT I had at the doctor’s office

I highly recommend ThePrehab guys for all your athletic physical therapy needs. I broke my foot and had surgery in February. As an avid runner, I wanted to get back out there ASAP. Coronavirus waylaid my plans. PT was sporadic or canceled. I am so glad I found the Prehab guys. Everything I could want or imagine. Thanks so much for getting me back on the roads. I also did the shoulder program for a torn labrum and it was fantastic also.

– Cheryl R.

Very easy to follow yet effective guidelines to start running safely!

It’s been a few years since I’ve run on a consistent basis. I wanted to implement running back into my exercise regimen as a form of conditioning. This prehab program did a great job of slowly progressing me back to running consistently. Would recommend this to anyone concerned about running with previous injuries!

– Amer D.

This running program helped guide me back into a pain-free running program

I traditionally have used running to get in shape for ski season. As of recent I haven’t felt comfortable with running due to some knee problems. My running feels stronger than ever before, this is because of the exercise provided in the program. I look forward to a future competitive ski season.

– Jared C.

I was grateful to find something that kept me running

The guidance from this program kept me healthy enough to stay running and finally do my 1st ever marathon. Considering I have had so many injuries in the past, I was so grateful I found this program that allowed me to still run. I will be sure to keep this program handy for my next run.

– Robina G.

After working with this program I was able to return to running and hiking again!

I had a bad fall on lava while trail running and really banged up my right knee. After I healed up I had a lot of trouble getting back to running and hiking. After finishing this program, I now go for regular runs and can take long hikes on all kinds of terrain. If you are having trouble getting back into sports or running after an injury, I definitely recommend this!
