About the course
Building strength and mobilty in the hips can be the key to injury-prevention and makes a huge difference in improving running efficiency.
As we run, our gait goes through triple extension starting from the hips. Our glute maximus and hamstrings contract forcefully to to drive our thigh bone back from the hip into extension.
But we need mobility in the hip flexors to allow this to occur, along with core stability to maintain a neutral spine in this gait phase. And as most of us spent most of our day sitting down, our hip flexors are not great.
This programme of two short workouts a week, of under 20 minutes will help you to build strength and mobility in the hips.
- Two sessions per week
- 20 minutes and under
- Kit required: a set of restistance bands, a light or medium powerband and a foam roller (optional).
