Exercise Tips

No Mawashi Necessary

If you aren’t hip to the vernacular of gym culture, you might wonder why a sport with no relationship to Japanese culture constantly uses the word sumo to describe anything having to do with a wide stance. That discussion will have to wait for another day because right now, you just need to accept the convention to learn about the power and glory of the goblet sumo squat.

Sumo stances are common in powerlifting: A wide stance decreases your range of motion and puts more stress on the powerful glutes and hamstrings. You can use this same concept by transforming your regular goblet squat into a posterior chain super-movement. Take heed of the common pitfalls, make notes on form, and get to squatting.

Run the Mile in Style

Long-distance running coach Lee Whitaker wants you to run a faster mile, and in this article, he has the keys you need for success.

Assuming you are already running (if not, then step one becomes: start running), Whitaker wants you to develop a strong aerobic system by shaking up your workouts to include longer runs and shorter bursts of energy instead of keeping the distance and speed constantly the same. 

Refreshingly, he also wants you to worry less about your form and spend more energy on actually running. If you want a better mile time, or if you’re just curious about the ins and outs of training for distance running, everything is spelled out for you to understand below.
