  2. Balance: Strengthening exercises can increase flexibility and balance as people age, reducing falls and injuries.

  3. Prevent injuries: by focusing on the specific needs of runners (hip and glute strength).

  4. Stronger bones: Strength training increases bone density and reduces the risk of fractures.

  5. Joint flexibility: Strength training helps joints stay flexible and can reduce the symptoms of arthritis.
