Why is training your posterior chain (aka - back body, gluteus, hamstrings, calves) important for athletic movements and running?
If you spend most of your day sitting, notice knee or back pain after running, you may be placing strain (tightness/overuse) on your anterior chain. 🔑 The key to moving well is balance. These few exercises will help add well rounded stability to your body and for those of you who are runners will add efficiency and power to your stride. 💪🏃🏽♀️🏃🏾
Aim to complete three rounds (10-12 repetitions each movement) of the exercises shown with a mix of cardio (quarter mile sprint or walk) between each round for added intensity. 🌟Always remember to listen to your body....YOU are the expert on YOU.🤩
