Hope it’s been a great running week for you! With only a week to go until the Twilight Running Festival it’s been awesome catching up with so many of you leading into it. Also, a big shout out and congrats goes out to all our RIF REVers who took part in the Six Foot Track Marathon over the weekend! We’re looking forward to hearing all about your achievements guys!
This week I wanted to focus on one of the more “lazy” body parts when it comes to running- your gluteal. As a serious runner ideally you want your glutes to be activated at all times. To help engage this muscle Ang is going to take you through the RIF REV teams favourite way to strengthen your gluteals with the exercise ‘Wall Glutes’.
When starting to include Wall Glutes into your running routine remember that technique is key. I tend to find that what most people miss is catching the ‘edges’ of strength and length. Essentially what you want to achieve is a controlled push at the start of the momentum, to the end of your range, but also a controlled muscle when coming back to start. By doing so this will ensure you are targeting the most important strength areas for running! Check out the video about to see exactly what I’m talking about guys and start to include this into your routine to keep you running into your 80’s and 90’s!
Enjoy this one RIF REVers!
