Strengthen and Stretch! The 12 Moves All Runners Need to Do
2 of 12
Move 2: Side Lunge
What it does:
Works the muscle on the side of the pelvis (glute meds) as well as the inner thighs.
Holding a pair of dumbbells at your side, stand with your feet and knees together.
Take a large step with your right foot to the right side, and lunge toward the floor.
Make sure your right knee does not extend past your toes, and keep your left leg relatively straight.
Push off through your right foot to return to the start to complete one.
Do three sets of 10 on each side.
