January 2017: “How To” Friday Abs:


Core muscles used while running

It’s no secret that runners need a strong core. Let’s fire up those ab muscles on Friday before our long runs on the weekend!

Runner’s Crunch: Great ab work for runners that also helps strengthen and build control in our abdominal muscles. Better than typical crunches for runners!

Runners Crunch with modification and progression

Oblique Crunches: Scott Herman again showing us the proper form for Oblique Crunches. I like how he spreads his legs wide to get more stability.

Lying Leg Raise: Core exercise that targets the rectus abdominis, abductors, Psoas, and quads.
