I’m always looking for ways to build core strength, especially during the off-season. Here’s a great way to find more core stability and stronger knee drive at the same time.
Why❓Because if we don’t engage the core when we’re running, our pelvis is less stable (so is the low back!) and it gets much harder to drive the knee forward in space.
By coming to all fours, I can get some resistance by pushing down, which helps me find that elusive core engagement, even as I draw the knee toward my chest.
🔸The blocks might have to be higher for you to get your knee forward toward the chest. Why? Because #proportionsmatter! I have long arms and a short waist. You might be working with short arms and a longer waist. But you need the extra height to get the knee forward and toward the chest. 🔹Add some padding under the standing knee if it gets sensitive! 🔸Make sure that the blanket can slide on whatever surface you’re using! 👉Questions?
