Having a stable and strong core is a foundational requirement of enjoyable and efficient running. The rotation of our upper body is an important part of moving forward when you walk and run. However, you must learn to control that motion so you can harness it to power your forward motion in an efficient and smooth manner.
Just doing hundreds of sit ups or static plank holds won’t cut it. You gain control over your core by viewing it as an integrated system from neck to thighs, and then learning the type of activations and exercises that are most beneficial for you to do this – and that’s what this skills session is all about.
