"Exercise can be more rejuvenating when introverts are allowed their own space to withdraw and don't need to interact as much," says Leah Lagos, a New York–based clinical and sport psychologist. Sound like you? Read on to find seven workouts for introverts that will leave you feeling exhilarated, energized, and coming back for more. More

The IT band is a fibrous tissue that lies over the muscles from the hip to the outside of the knee, says Wendy Winn, PT, OCS, of New York Custom Physical Therapy in New York City. Given its huge span over important muscles, it's a crucial part of the running motion—and a potential source of injury. If leg strength and stability are lacking, other parts of the body are forced to pick up the slack and absorb the shock from each running strike. The burden usually falls on the IT band, which becomes tight and irritated, Winn says. Keep these tips handy, whether you're currently battling an IT band injury or are getting smart about prevention. You won't miss a long run again. More
