Exercise For Low Back Pain, Hip Pain, and Knee Pain

 I think this is a great exercise for all runners to do.
It should help improve your stability, range of motion and power and strength.
End result run faster with less pain and injury :0]
why not give it a go and see if it can help you!

I asked Doctor Steve how many reps and sets should one start at and build up to?

As long as you hold good form and can still nail a good 360 degree core breath without your shoulders raising up and up to a set of 12 reps, then 8 reps, then 4 reps each side (descending pyramid). Once you can do need to add more weight or challenging variations. Start with a goal of 5 good ones and go from there.

That looks like a good one Rick. A bit different to the usual walking lunges I sometimes do prior to a track session. Looks like doing it slowly and with good form is the secret.


Yes Ewen, good form is all important!
It took my a few tries to get the exercise right, but well worth doing :0]
