We runners know many great exercises for strong glutes or quads. However, we might underestimate how important strong hips are for our running biomechanics!
If you are an overpronator and want to strengthen muscles responsible for excessive movement of your knees and arches – you’re in the right place. We’ve got a very simple hip workout for you, to target the abductors, adductors, hip flexors and extensors.
Enjoy the video workout :-)
Thera-Band Resistance Bands
The red band provides medium resistance (5.5 pounds of force when stretched to 200% of its length); green provides a heavier resistance of 6.7 pounds; blue provides heavier resistance (with 8.6 pounds of force). Higher resistance bands are great for people who already work out regularly. Beginners may want to start with a lower one.
