Run Smarter with LEVER Movement: The Benefits of using LEVER for Runners

Runners are constantly seeking ways to improve their performance, increase their mileage, and recover from injuries more effectively. Whether you're training for your first 5K or preparing for a marathon, optimizing your running routine can make a significant difference. The LEVER system is designed to help you achieve these goals by providing adjustable support that reduces the load on your joints and muscles. In this blog, we'll explore the various benefits of our system for runners and how it can help you run smarter and more efficiently.

Improving Running Form

Running form is a critical aspect of performance and injury prevention. Poor form can lead to inefficient movement patterns and increase the risk of injuries. LEVER's  system helps runners maintain proper form by reducing the effective weight on their lower body. This allows runners to focus on their technique without the added strain of full body weight, making it easier to correct form issues and develop more efficient running mechanics.

Key Benefits:

  • Enhanced Posture: The system encourages an upright posture, reducing the tendency to hunch or lean forward.
  • Better Stride: With less weight to carry, runners can achieve a more natural and effective stride.
  • Reduced Impact: Lower impact forces help prevent common running injuries such as shin splints and stress fractures.

Increasing Mileage Safely

One of the biggest challenges for runners is increasing mileage without overloading their bodies. Overtraining can lead to fatigue, injuries, and burnout. The LEVER system allows runners to gradually increase their mileage by providing adjustable support that can be tailored to their specific needs.

Key Benefits:

  • Gradual Progression: Runners can incrementally increase their mileage with less risk of injury, allowing for a safer build-up of endurance.
  • Increased Training Volume: By reducing the load on the body, runners can train more frequently and for longer durations.
  • Enhanced Recovery: The system allows for active recovery runs, maintaining fitness while giving the body time to heal.

Effective Injury Recovery

Recovering from an injury can be a frustrating and lengthy process. Maintaining fitness levels while avoiding further injury is crucial during recovery. The LEVER system provides a solution by allowing for low-impact exercise that promotes healing and maintains cardiovascular fitness.

Key Benefits:

  • Low-Impact Exercise: The system reduces the strain on injured areas, allowing for gentle exercise that aids recovery.
  • Maintained Fitness: Runners can continue to train at a reduced intensity, preventing loss of fitness during recovery periods.
  • Faster Rehabilitation: By providing a controlled environment for movement, the system helps accelerate the rehabilitation process.

Real-Life Success Stories

Many athletes have experienced the transformative benefits of the LEVER system. For instance, Triathlete Andy: "Being a heavier runner/triathlete I am always plagued by injury in the off season and was looking at another stint of rest and recuperation. However, I was recommended the Lever system to try and I took the plunge and ordered one. It arrived and was very quick and easy to setup. My first try was a 30 minute walk run and it just felt easy and way less impact on my calf injury. Fast forward 3 weeks and I am already at 1 hour constant running at the 4th level of weight reduction. I feel confident now to run outside for the same time, but I will still be using this to supplement my training and to use it for those harder days off the bike or even on long run days where I feel I need to keep the load off but still keep the cardiovascular effort. Great, easy to install product, and for me worth its weight in gold keeping me running. Long term I hope to have no run injuries."
