Cross Country Team is Injury Free!

 

The Mesa State Cross Country Team of Grand Junction, Colorado has just completed its first injury free season. Team members were evaluated at the beginning of the season to assess leg and trunk strength / endurance. Several of the harriers were amazed to see the imbalances they had developed from previous injuries or not performing appropriate core training. Based on the test results each member implemented the exercises presented in the DVD

" A Balanced Solution" to restore muscular balance. Coach Gig Leadbetter reported "We have not had an injury since beginning this program and our training program is the same - none of those hip or IT band problems that plagued us last year."
