Are you a runner who often hits the pavement without do much as doing a quick side stretch? If this is you, listen up! While running is great cardiovascular exercise, it's not so great for our joints. The repetitive single-plane motion of running can cause a lot of unnecessary wear and tear on our joints, ligaments, and already weak and tight hip flexor muscles. Take 20 before each run to warm up with this workout that includes myofacial release, active stretching, and glute and core activation exercises. your body will definitely thank you for it and you might even notice a difference in your speed and agility!
