Lunges for Runners (Glute-Focused)

Think the best way to lunge is to step forward and drop the back knee? Think again.

This traditional lunge isn’t ideal for runners as it fails to engage the glutes and core fully.

As a Physical Therapist, I find most runners struggle with injuries and their pace because they’ve become imbalanced. The glutes and core are weak, and the balance is insufficient, resulting in overuse at the hip, knee, and ankle.

That’s why I love these new types of lunges. I use them in the clinic and in my upcoming run form bootcamp, Kneed for Speed.

With a few minor tweaks, you can turn on your glutes and core for faster running and fewer injuries.

Want to Run Faster?

Without Having to Train Harder or Run More Miles?

It’s possible with Kneed for Speed, a four-week bootcamp from Physical Therapist, Steve Gonser PT DPT.

Get all the training, drills, stretches, and exercises you need to break away from shuffling, open your stride, and finally run faster.
