Core strength is extremely important for runners and these simple exercises can get your started. They are especially great for those new to running to help with awakening those running muscles and to help you run stronger and hopefully injury free. All of these exercises can be done at home or at the gym with just a few easy to find tools.
Everyone runner should have a stability ball and a theraband. Both are great for core strength, injury prevention and injury rehabilitation. These exercises can be done 2-3 times a week; they will activate your running muscles and create a strong foundation for all your activities.
With all exercises make sure you are using proper form and technique to get the desired effect.
