Barefoot Running conditioning series Part 1- Power Pull, Hip Hinge, Cross Balance Lunge.
Ross Eathorne, Exercise & Lifestyle specialist, Ultramarathoner (Racing the Planet- Sahara 2009) presents a series of TRX-based conditioning exercises and 5 anatomy trains/yoga stretches for post running to help with conditioning for running.
These routines will help especially those who are looking to transition to barefoot running or who are using the Vibram Five Fingers minimalist shoes.
First up, we have the Power Pull.
Next, we have the Standing Hip Hinge.
The Cross Balance Lunge finishes up the exercises for Part 1 of this series.
This movement helps to correct weak glutes or Tredelenburg’s sign that most often leads to some sort of lower limb injury, or worse, sacroiliac joint injury in the lower back.
Here I demonstrate the TRX crossing balance lunge to improve mid-stance stability.
Stay tuned for Part 2 in the series!
