Let’s Get This Started!
Today we have a simple routine for you, focusing on some of the major muscle groups that tend to cause restriction around the hip in runners. We aim to keep to the 10-15min workout principal, so we’ve picked three of the major muscle groups in this region to focus on, and thrown-in some balance work too!
