Matt Molloy – Lateral Hip Strength Drill

Today we decided to film Matt Molloy, top Irish Age Grouper, during his Running Technique and Running Strength session coached by James Dunne.

The short clip below is one great example of the multiplanar strength exercises which Kinetic Revolution use with such success to develop lateral and rotational strength around the hips of triathletes and runners. We focus regularly on these planes of motion, even though the athletes normally engage in linear movements. Improving strength, mobility, power and stability in multiple planes builds a much stronger runner.

  • Attention: My tennis-loving friends, this is exercise looks fantastic for improving your lateral (sideways) power and speed! (But take it easy at first if you’re not quite as fit as this triathlete seems to be.)
