Running Core and Glute Warm Up

Unless we are thinking about sprinters and track athletes power is not something we generally associate with running. However to make sure we have a continuous momentum from one step to the next we need ouo active glutes to connect with an engaged rotating core / trunk.

This type of connection is often seen golf or tennis where power from core rotation is a must.

The video below from comamperformance shows a great combination that could be done in a warm up to wake up the glute to core systems

For example do 2 sets of 2 med ball throws as shown on each side followed by 4 steps of the glute referenced walking lunge on each side holding a 3kg weight in each hand.

Do a 20m run after each of the sets to bring that glute to core connection into your running
