While training for my first marathon I included at least one leg workout every week to help keep injury at bay. The gym sessions have included all of the standard leg exercises for runners—squats, lunges and deadlifts.

As I recover from the marathon (your tendons can take up to 12 weeks to recover) I’ve been on the lookout for lower-intensity exercises. That’s how I came across this lower-body routine from coaching duo Vivienne and Mike Addo, known online as MrandMrMuscle.
