4 glute exercises you can do today to make you a stronger runner.

For many years I reigned as the Queen of Injuries. I had pretty much every running-related injury possible. It wasn’t until I really focused on incorporating some strength training into my routine that I stopped getting so many injuries. As women, and especially after having kids, we really need to make sure we are putting in the work to strengthen our glutes, hips and core to avoid getting injured. Strengthening these major muscle groups will also help to propel forward more efficiently, maintain proper form while running and help to conquer those hills like it is nobody’s business. Added bonus—because you are strong from all of the strength training you have been doing, you can train longer and harder, which will make you a better runner.
