If you want to improve your running and dont know where to start with all the running drills out there, then this is it. At its simplest, running is switching your weight from one leg to the other. If you can’t balance on one leg then how can you every do this!
This simple drill trains your posture, balance and stability. Pay attention to your posture keeping your core muscles and gluts switched on.
These exercises are also great for preventing injuries in the lower leg and foot such as achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis. Just try it and you will feel the small muscles in your foot and lower leg twitching to stabilise you and getting stronger.
The basic exercise can be progressed by coming up on to your toe or by closing your eyes for enhanced proprioceptive training.
