15 minutes total
1 minute per move (30 seconds on each side, and 30 seconds per leg on last 3 moves) 
Do all 3x total
Hi everyone! So some of you have already tried this workout, which my core definitely needs! My first time was confusing, but you get the hang of the moves quickly. Sofia looks awesome doesn’t the moves too since she’s a dancer and incredibly flexible. Some tips I found: 
Stretch quads before. You use them a lot during the “V-Hold with Leg Kicks.” 
Keep inner-thighs together during the V-ups. If this is difficult, cross ankles to help. 
Sit on side of buttocks, not your hip, during “Side V-Ups with Leg Kicks.” it hurts less.

Lunge with Torso Rotation
Time: 1 minute, 30 seconds on each side. 
1) Start in a forward lunge position with both legs bent. Hold dumbbell with both hands on the inside of your lunge. 
2)Keeping abs tight and hips square, rotate through your torso to bring arms up over the opposite shoulder. Keep arms straight. 
3) Bring arms back down to start position. Repeat the rotation and switch sides halfway through. 
This is one of my favorite strength training moves! It works your legs, abs, and arms!

5 minutes Shoulders, 5 minutes Abs, 5 minutes Back with plank during “recovery” 

I find it hard to fit in strength training with the hours I spend running throughout the week, so I gave my myself a very small, do-able goal: 15 minutes of strength training 3x a week. I KNOW you guys may think this is so little, but honestly it’s the amount that works for me and doesn’t stress me out. Another way I’ve fit strength training into my workouts is by doing quick sets of push-ups and abs right after running. For example today, I ran 8 miles then hit the floor for 24 push-ups and scissor-kicks and crunches until I was sore. It’s not much, but it’s what I can do! 

Why I want to do more strength training: To achieve a toned, healthy, energetic look!

Allyson Felix Unstoppable

New bonus workout out on Nike Training App! Do these moves 3x for a 15 minute total body workout. 

Favorite Move: Lunge with torso twist

Hardest Move: Single Leg Deadlifts with Single Arm T’s

Reflection: This morning, I finished a 30 minute “Get Strong” workout plus this routine featuring Felix. I need to work on my balance and all this running with little strength training is making me weak! (My inner thighs are getting dimply when I sit Indian-style! AHh!) 

Goal: 3 strength training sessions a week, even if it’s just a 15 minute “Get Focused” workout. Also, think of more strength training methods I actually like and will stick with.

Let’s work-out together!

~Geri

PS: The feeling of being sore motivates me to do more strength workouts. After some ab work yesterday, my obliques are sore. That’s right! There are muscles underneath my/your love handles so make them sweat!

I can’t believe I have done 1625 minutes of circuit and weight training with NTC! I used to do two or three 30-45 minute workouts a week, but now with 5 days of running, yoga, and golf, I only do a single 45 min session on Mondays and two 15 minute abdominal workouts a week. Overall, these workouts are fun, effective, and great strength training for runners. 
Keep it up!!
