Hip Strength Exercises for Runners

Hip strength exercises for runners are often ignored. Performing hip strengthening exercises can be the difference between running injury free or spending a season with nagging injuries. Two very important hip muscles, the gluteus maximus and medius receive the most attention for a good reason. However, there is a muscle group called the adductors that commonly is ignored by many. The adductor group runs on the inside of the thigh from the groin area to the knee. It is a difficult muscle to isolate and strengthen in a functional position. This simple technique with a band is a great way to improve  adductor strength which helps increase hip stability.
