3D Lunge Warm-Up for Running
Although running is a linear motion, moving straight forwards, the component movements at each joint happen in all three planes of motion (sagittal, frontal and transverse planes). Thus it’s really important that as we warm-up, we consider all three planes of motion to get the body fully ready for our run session ahead.
The dynamic lunge is a great exercise to use in a warm-up, especially when three dimensional variations are performed to target each of the cardinal planes of motion.
Coach Jay Johnson shares this great video below, demonstrating a simple series of lunges to prepare you for your running workout. Your knees and hips in particular will benefit greatly from this series of lunges.
