|isn't that convenient? I'm missing 2 of them now.|
The combination of weak glute muscles and the way my knees go inward when I run makes me injury prone while running.
While running now I need to:
1. keep my knees a soccer ball width apart. Don't laugh, I find it challenging.
2. lift my knees way higher
3. keep my back straight. Slouching is so much more comfortable, isn't it?
In general I now need to:
1. not lean toward one side when I drive, watch t.v, etc.
2. keep my knees a soccer ball width apart and strengthen the muscles on my lower inner thighs
It might not sound like a lot, but it is a lot to keep track of when you're running. I'm confused because I was my fastest when I just ran. No garmin, nothin'. Ah well.
- step ups
- plie squats
- hip lifts
Some exercises that help strengthen the inner thighs:
- machine adductions
- power squat (a squat with a weighted bar)
- sumo deadlift
- side lunges
- wall squat with exercise ball (and soccer ball for between knees)
Google these exercises if you're unsure how to do some of them.
Are you injury prone?
What part of your body (if any) do you find weaker? or stronger?
Don't you wish there was a more feminine name for deadlifts?
