This exercise is part of my warm up and bounding series. “A March/A skip” the goal is to reinforce good running form. Engage core, drive knee up while dorsiflexing foot on driving leg. Engage glute as you move up onto your forefoot of the down leg. Slight lean forward with your chest. Do not allow yourself to sit back. You want your foot to lad under your body, not in front of it. Your driving foot should follow along the line created by ankle and knee of your down leg. #runningform#formdrills#prehab#runningstrong#runningcommunity#myworkout#fitness#askip
Exercise #6 Wall Angels- this is part of my prehab routine. I do it prior to runs. Stand with feet hip width apart, tighten abs to flatten your back against the wall. Keep your abs and shoulders engaged as you slowly slide arms along the wall and back down. 2x10. This helps to train the shoulder as a counter balance and allow force to flow from your leg through your back over to your shoulder which exits the body in arm swing. #mycore#prehab#runningstrong#fitness#runnersbody#runnersofinstagram#runningcommunity#wallangels

A love note to younger me: Oh young Becki! This passion you feel, it’s real! Chase like it matters, because it does. You dream of bettering others through running, and one day despite all the people who tell you you are not fast enough, you will and it’s beautiful. Dream big, like way bigger than the State Meet big (haha). Trust me, one day the State meet results won’t even matter to you. Gasp...I know! Embrace this sport, roll with the ups and downs, soak in the highs and all the wonderful humans you meet along the way. I assure you there will be some lows along the way, but you’ll get through them. You never have really known when to quit. The passion you have is beautiful and it will draw people to you. Stay open, and honest, even when it hurts. Others will be strengthened because of you, and you with be strengthened because of them. I want to do something that matters, and I know that’s an ongoing process. I love you young Becki, after all, you were the vessel that followed my dreams. PS. don’t worry your next orange and black singlet is even better than you HS one...Go Dukes! #note2self❤️ #dreamer#love#thankful#oisellevolée#thenandnow#runlove#runnersbody#personalgrowthjourney#buckeyebirdlove#runohio

Exercise #6- “Dead Bug” Lie with your back flat on the floor with your arms extended straight up, your legs bent at 90 degrees, and holding a stability ball between your knees and your hands. Keeping the ball in place with your right hand and left knee, tighten your abs and slowly lower your right leg and left arm to just above the floor. Only go as low as you can with your low back pressing in to the floor. Return to the starting position, and repeat on your other side. 2x20 each side. #mycore#deadbug#fitness#irun#runnersbody#runnersofinstagram#strength#fitandfast#runnersofinstagram
Exercise 5- side plank with 2 variations. Tighten glutes and abs (which I have to focus to maintain) as you lift into a side plank. You can now hold for 60-90 seconds, or do the up/down variation moving you hip slowly up and down while maintaining glute and ab engagement, or lift the upper leg slowly being sure to keep abs tight and not allowing the glute to quit working! Sorry for the delay in getting this exercise out! I took a few falls on my Sunday long run and was quite sore! So I was being careful! #coreworkout#fitness#fitrunner#runners#runningcommunity#runningmotivation#getitdone#workout#strength
Exercise 4- Slow Push-up! This one is hard (in my opinion)! Engage core, while slowly lowering your chest just above the ground while keeping arms parallel to your body. Inhale on the way down exhale on the way up. For me I have to really focus on keeping my core engaged to not “sway” back up. I started from a knee position and slowly worked up to this. Work up to 2x10. Comment or DM if you have any questions!
