How to Improve Your Balance with One Simple Cue

Many of the runners I meet ask me for tips to help them learn how to balance better. Typically they find that any balance training results in their calf region working super-hard, rather than the other important muscles like the glutes.

In today’s video above, I demonstrate a simple cue to improve your balance almost immediately, by recruiting the correct muscles to provide stability at the hip.

Give it a go, and if you find the cue helpful, please feel free to leave a comment beneath the video here.
