4 Must Know Runner’s Strength Exercises

These are four of my favourite running strength exercises for targeting hip stability and strength.

Theses exercises are best performed consistently through-out the course of week of running training. The greater the running volume the greater the need to perform hip strength and stability exercises more frequently.

For example if you are aiming to compete in a 10km road or trail race you may do these twice a week. Whereas if you were preparing for a marathon you may complete these daily.

Please note that there are literally scores of running strength and stability exercises that I routinely prescribe to runners to improve or maintain their hips stability and strength, these are four of the more frequently prescribed exercises I give out.

Some other favourite running strength exercises include:
