This routine strengthens the core plus the hip flexors, hamstrings and quads and improves balance.
Do these moves, working up to three sets of ten reps, after easy runs – when you wouldn’t want to lie down anyway.
Stand with feet parallel, hip-width apart, hands across the chest.
Drive your hips forward, bend your knees and lean back,.
Keep your core tight as you tilt so that there is no pressure on the lower back.
Make it harder: Do the same move with feet in a staggered stance (one behind the other).
Make it advanced: Do the move standing on one leg.
