Strength Training Tip For Runners #5-Band Walks

Band Walks:

Band walks - walk sideways and forward and backwards. When going forwards and backwards step out at about 30 degrees so you place tension on the outer hips.

Band walks are a fantastic exercise to strengthen your glutes, inner thighs and outer thighs. Loop the band around either your ankles or your knees, the lower on your legs you place the band, the more challenging the exercise will be. By placing an emphasis on training your glutes we create more stable and stronger hips. Strong and balanced hips help to control your knees and reduces stress into your lower back. This can reduce back pain and knee pain while running. Stronger hips and legs can handle more miles!
