The May/June 2021 issue of Canadian Running was just released and in it, you’ll find my latest contribution to the Body Work section titled Workout with a Weighted Backpack. This workout targets all the running specific muscles and can be done in the comfort of your living room. All you need is a backpack filled to roughly 20-40 pounds. A fitness sandbag with handles will also work great. To view the exercise demonstrations and to get a breakdown of the workout, click the PLAY button in the graphic above.
