Create your own cable machine! Grab a resistance band and loop it around something sturdy (heavy couch legs are good). This mini routine is one that I do post-run. Not all workouts have to take hours—I did this while hard-boiling some eggs.
💪💪💪 1. “Rainbows”: on hands and knees, knee in the same plane as your hip (easier said than executed 😂). Works internal and external hip rotation, which helps stabilization during running.
2. Chest opener/T-spine work. Goal here is not necessarily upper body strength, but upper body MOBILITY; hence the freestyle form and the light dumbbell.
3. Quad crunch: Do not pull your neck up. That lift comes from your core. Elbows super wide helps.
4. Bird-dog/Hip Extension. I love these. Works core, stability, posterior chain—all the good stuff.
I’m doing a Q and A for #couchto5k with @blitzyourbody and @urbnplayground tomorrow at 5:30pm on their Instagram Live page. If running outside is not your thing right now, these moves will help you when you venture outside and hit the pavement again. 💪💪💪 Stay well. Stay kind.
