Boost performance by adding this twist to your workout.

If you've been doing the same strength-training exercises for months, your muscles may be in a holding pattern. "To add distance or increase speed, your cross-training efforts need to push your limits," says Michael Silverman, a physical therapist at the Sports Rehabilitation and Performance Center at New York City's Hospital for Special Surgery. These tweaks will help you develop new power for your run. LEG LIFT TWEAK: ADD ARM SWING Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, arms at your sides. Lift your right knee as high as you can, and swing your left arm forward until it’s parallel to the floor. Return to start, and repeat with your left knee and your right arm. Continue alternating sides for 1 minute; rest and repeat twice.
