    Mr Ray Loh, an exercise physiologist at Tan Tock Seng Hospital, demonstrates some strength conditioning exercises.

    These are a few of the many exercises that runners can conveniently add to their training regimens as they do not require equipment.

    "Dynamic exercises can improve one's shoulder, core and back stability, which can help maintain a good posture during running. This also indirectly helps in the training outcome and injury prevention," he said.

    Walking lunge

    This strengthens the thigh and buttock muscles.

    1. Stand upright.
    2. Take a big step forward with your left leg and lower your body, flexing both knees until your right knee almost touches the floor. At the same time, swing your right arm forward and left arm backward until both upper arms are parallel to the floor. When the right knee almost touches the floor (left), stand up again.
    3. Now, step forward with your right leg and lower your body, flexing both knees until your left knee almost touches the floor. Swing your left arm forward and your right arm backward until both upper arms are parallel to the floor. Do the exercise as a coordinated and continuous movement.
    4. Do two to three sets of between 10 and 20 lunges on each leg.
