3 Exercises to help with Hip Drop

One of the most common deficiencies seen in runners is a compensation called a “hip drop.”

Hip drop occurs when full body weight is being supported on one leg, the stance phase of running. Typically, a weakness in the hip of the weight bearing leg causes the opposite hip to drop.

Hip drop can lead to or cause: IT band pain, Hip pain, Knee pain, etc.

Even if you are not rehabbing an injury, prevention is key.

With such a high percentage of runners getting injured each year:

✔️ it's a good idea to address your weak areas

✔️ focus on the foundations

✔️ continue strength training outside of running

Not sure if you Hip Drop?

Schedule your Running Assessment HERE or come the next workshop HERE.

3 exercises to add to your workout:

1) Toe taps with or without band - don't let standing knee fall in

2) Single leg squats - keep hips level

3) Side plank with hip extension/flexion - keep core strong & hip high

I'll be posting more ideas this week on my IG & FB accounts
