POWER OF THE BUTT AND KENYAN PROGRESSION SESSION

You may have read how using your butt muscles when you run can improve power and reduce knee pain, but does it work in practice?
setting off on my session i worked at tightening up my butt muscle as my foot landed, at first it felt a bit strange but once I started running faster I did feel like I was producing more power.
I guess the idea is to stop your hips rocking from side to side and provide a stable platform for the push off!
It seems to work, give it a try!
