Movement Monday: Core Strengthening
Dynamic core strength is key for runners, as the power for our stride should come from our torso and pelvis moving together.
FLPT’s Caroline Varriale shares two simple—yet effective—exercises to strengthen the core.
The 3D Plank Matrix with Pelvic Drivers engages the hips and core in all three planes of motion.
In standing, a Posterior Lunge with an Overhead Reach to Balance combines single leg stability with core activation; hold a medicine ball or dumbbell for extra challenge.
Make sure you’re breathing during both exercises!
