If you know me, you know that I typically stand with my feet turned out. It’s not intentional; it’s just how I stand. Over the course of my life, I’ve become incredibly tight in my hip flexors. Super common for those of us who have to sit in meetings or at a desk most of the day. Little by little, my body has compensated and resulted in a beautiful turnout… if I were a ballerina. Which translates to not such a beautiful running gait. I’ve been working really hard to fix this because, as you can imagine, it can create lots of other problems that I won’t go into in this blog. But for me, the biggest motivator is that I am always trying to run faster. I spend most of the Spring and Summer running outside and training for races. Because my hips are tight, I’m missing quite a bit of range of motion in my stride, which means my stride is much shorter than it could be. This is one of the most common issues we see in runners. Check out our video on our best mobility move to help runners get faster and run more efficiently. You have to try it… it’s a game changer. If you do this move each night, you’ll see a meaningful change in your range of motion in two weeks.
