We teach committed high school runners numerous elements for improving their running. One of my favorite exercises I have learned at the camp is The Lunge Warm Up, which Coach Johnson advocates before every run and is based on Physical Therapist Gary Gray’s Lunge Matrix.
Three reasons why I love it?
- Takes less than 5 minutes— short and sweet!
- Moves through all three essential planes of movement— runners often overlook anything but forwards motion.
- Turns on your glutes— you will have to try it to find out!
