Lateral Wall 4

Prehab Exercises
By: DOSE Running

Not sure if you have strong and stable hips for running? Test yourself the Lateral Wall 4!

Be mindful to set yourself up in a squat, feet, knees, hips and shoulders aligned as if they’re on train tracks.
When you flick your inside leg up, maintain this alignment without resting your quad, hip or upper body against the wall.

If you can’t hold the shape, you loose alignment, or most commonly, you have to compensate by moving your shoulders away from the wall or onto the wall – we have some hip stabilising strength to work on.

Comfortable with this one?
Integrate 5-10 second holds pre-run.
Hold to fatigue after your run, for low impact strength gains.
