If you can do these exercises, your core is probably at rockstar status! In this third installment of core strengthening videos, we take strengthening to the next level. With running, it is critical to be strong, but also be able to respond quickly and efficiently. If you can hold a plank for 60 seconds, but your core muscles are .1 seconds too slow when they are called upon, then your core is not functioning properly. The exercises we tackle today are more quick and dynamic, requiring greater agility. This element of quickness is critical for being a strong runner.
Have fun with these and please pass them along to someone who may find these helpful. Let me know how they go for you by commenting or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please ensure you are comfortable with basic exercises that we’ve addressed in recent videos (basic and advanced core strength), before attempting these.
