Ec­cen­tric lunge

Runner's World South Africa - - FLEXIBLE THINKING -

1. Step for­ward with your left leg and lower into a lunge over 3-5 secs, ac­ti­vat­ing the hip flex­ors of your right leg.

At the end of your range, push your right foot into the ground and hold for a few secs (main­tain the con­trac­tion in your hip flex­ors), or do six mini lunges be­fore re­turn­ing to stand­ing. “Be sure your pelvis is fac­ing for­ward, as it would be in the cor­rect run­ning po­si­tion,” says Blaze­vich. Re­peat on the other side. Do 3-5 reps per leg.
