The hips play a major role in keeping runners healthy. Numerous scientific research studies have proven that runners routinely suffer from weak, tight, and under-developed hip muscles.
These hip muscle groups are particularly important because they’ve been implicated in a range of running injuries. Weak hips can often be the cause of IT band pain, patella tendonitis (runner’s knee), piriformis issues, sciatica, and a myriad of other common running injuries.
This routine is a preventative set of exercises designed to work all the muscles in the hip and glutes while also increasing flexibility and range of motion.
