How important is hip strength for running? Absolutely crucial! With every step you take, the hip muscles are the primary drivers of swinging your leg forward. Even more important than that, they are absolutely necessary for stabilizing your core, which will allow the rest of the core muscles to keep your spine in alignment and fire properly.
Indeed, proper hip strength sets you up for success as a runner more than all the crunches and planks in the world can do.
