Did you know that approximately 80% of runners will miss more than one week a year due to injury?

Did you know that strength training may improve your running performance while preparing your body for the demands of a long distance race?

With these elements in mind, Excelsior Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine is excited to announce the development a runner specific strength based program comprised of four (4) exercise phases which steadily progress the runner to perform at their peak. The strength program is designed to complement your current running program and to create a solid foundation of movement, increase strength, develop power, and allow for gradual taper and neuromuscular recovery leading up to race day.

Benefits of the program

  • Research based programming intended to complement your running program

  • Designed to improve movement, strength, power, and recovery in a systematic fashion

  • Initial assessment to document individual abilities

  • Customized program tailored to individual needs

  • Valued at $250, the program is offered to Buffalo Marathon participants at $95

  • Direct access to Excelsior Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine staff for participants

    Prior to starting the strength program, each runner will undergo a physical and performance assessment documenting joint range of motion and mobility, functional movement patterns, and total body strength. From this assessment, each runner will be provided with a program specifically customized to their individual needs. (Please contact our office to schedule you assessment.)

Following the assessment, the runner will be given access to their online program which provides weekly guidance and recommendations to improve performance. Participants in the program will also be given direct access to our physical therapy and athletic training staff through a dedicated email service for ongoing support and questions.

Any participant who is undertaking the challenge of any of the Buffalo Marathon distances may benefit from this program.  Our goal is to help you improve upon imbalances, bolster strengths, and prepare for success and enjoyment on race day! This year’s program is being offered at a discounted rate of $95 (Valued at $250) for our Buffalo Marathon participants. Sign up today- Space is limited to the first 100 participants.
