4 Ab and Butt Blasting Exercises for Running!

Friday, June 27, 2014
Hey RIF REVers,

Seeing so many RIF REVers improve their running technique out of sight guys! The hardest thing is still to have the length and strength to stay straight like a board while leaning from the ankles. Tricky part is most people are either straight as anything and too upright which means muscle strength and power is the only thing taking them forward or the lean happens but it comes more from the hips not the ankles. Even trickier is that it’s very hard to pick that hip lean in yourself. We have spoken about targeting length to better enable you to stay long and lean from the ankles but it’s also a strength issue as well. Again most of you might be really strong but if you have gaps in strength through range, it’s no good for you with running.  In this video Ang and Paul take you through four core strength exercises to give you abdominal strength in a straight, functional position for running and also gluteals in a really nice running range, inner range into extension which is exactly where you need it. Just be aware with this one guys because it will tell you where you are at with running strength. If you’re sagging out of position or sinking quickly through the exercise, those ranges need work. Fill the gaps!! Comfy at all times guys. Have fun RIF REVers!

Make sure you say hi if you see me at Gold Coast next week. Looking forward to catching up with everyone from RMA, Bayside, Flakers and the running community!

Enjoy your week!
