Another runner could be running with short, slow strides; landing on the midfoot; bending at the hip with almost no flexion at the knees; rounding the back and hunching the shoulders; wobbling the head side to side; and using zero movement in their arms.

The contraction-relax technique (see figure 6.2) begins in the same starting position with your partner providing an easy 4to 6-second stretch before giving the signal “back” for you to contract your hip flexors and push forward for 4 to 6 seconds as your partner continues to push your leg forward.

  • Thanks for the video! Really informative. I am struggling to get activation in my glutes during the side leg raises. I feel more activation in the side of my calf and thigh. Do you have any advice?

  • Really enjoyed this video it was both informative and calming! Also, running stretches are quite similar to stretches for rowers. Are there any other exercises and stretches you will recommend for rowers? (Often our backs get injured or strained). Thank you ✨

  • if you dudes desire to get ripped a lot quicker without wasting a single extra minute in the gym, then you should watch this online video COOK46.COM

    I have seen too many men go down, and I never permit myself to forget that one day, through accident or under the charge of a younger, stronger knight, I too will go down.

  • Love this workout but finding one leg toe taps in bridge hurts my lower back. Tried reducing the reps, and focusing on activation but nothing seems to help. Any advice?

  • Yo Mary J!! merci beaucoup!
    C’est bien plus accessible en termes de niveau que les précédents, et après la séance, je sens quand même que j’ai bien bossé des abs!!
    Merci d’avoir créé un niveau plus accessible, car fallait pas tenir le table top pendant 15 minutes ����
    Toujours un plaisir de “workout” avec toi Mary J. Merci et à bientôt pour la prochaine ��

  • This was great thank you for sharing! I just finished a half marathon and have been trying to do lots of stretching and foam rolling. This is exactly what I needed!

  • Great tips, thank you! Shared your video on my blog here: https://mountainmamasepicure.blogspot.com/2019/10/how-runners-can-use-pilates-to-improve.html

  • Join our Pilates for Runners Connect and get a free printable PDF with the 5 must know Pilates Exercises https://bit.ly/PilatesForRunnersConnect. We will send you up to date and relevant information about pilates based exercises specifically for runner and injury prevention.

  • Balance! So tough, but it makes sense that we need that for the trails! Thanks! keep them coming. This makes me want to enter the race!

  • Terrible moves for herniated discs will put you in hospital so bad I can’t believe google shows these it’s so wrong back painis very painful without idiots like this making you worse

  • Loving your videos. I am following the 30 day Pilates and am on day 5 now. I have a question when you “activation” what exactly does that mean? What and how should I feel? Please help. Thanks in advance!

  • 20 mins flew by in no time! Could feel muscles working i’d never feel in a 10k run. Thanks for taking the time to create this video, i’ll be repeating again very soon!

  • Enjoying these as they should make me more flexible for when cricket hopefully starts again in the UK. On a hamstring stretch I can get just past the knee but progressing!

  • I’m working towards a marathon and usually struggle with the longer distances, but am finding your sessions are keeping my body feeling great, between the lengthy weekly runs. Thank you!

  • Whoa! Just performed these, only took like 5mins, good job I’m using my fingers to write/talk coz I’m quite short of breath. Lol. Do not underestimate these. Dam I’m hooked!! 5mins out my day, doesn’t make sense. Can’t wait till tomorrow. 😉

  • This is the first time I’ve tried pilates for runners and I really enjoyed it. Will be doing more of these in preparation for running a half marathon

  • The instructions are detail and informative. The instructor understood that beginners need to know how the correct postures feel like.

  • Just found you and your workouts, I’m a very inflexible runner and am struggling with the workout but will stick with it as its highlighted how stiff I am thank you

  • The videos are great. I really like them. The only thing that is disappointing is the placement of the ads. They show up right in the middle of reps. I have to stop in the middle of an exercise to skip the ad and then get back into position to continue.

  • Wow great vid, I’m actually gonna comment about this vid, having suffered with a glass back for many years I have discovered Pilates, being told I have the back of a 70yr old at the age of 37 isn’t good. I will give these a go, I hope they are as good as they look

  • Love your Zest and drive ���� Amazing demonstration with body demonstration…. wish I could keep my body doing what it should ������

  • Thank you so much, I run 5 days a week and did this for the first time. I realized I wasn’t using my core and side leg muscles at all. After a long run yesterday, these really brought me back to normal, I feel amazing (my back and core burns though, it was hard to do these!).

  • Hi, these workouts are soso good. I absolutely love running but get injured alotalot so very happy to find injury prevention I actually enjoy:) Thank you.
    Q: How often would you do this workout when running training like per week?

  • Great workout Sophia! I love the clear explanations throughout. I like how you do the commentary on your workout, I’m going to try this

  • Im in decent shape and I found that difficult at times. Maybe could use short break between left and right sides. Thank you though. Great to find pilates specific for runners

  • Thanks so much for your videos! As an avid runner myself, I know the importance of flexibility and mobility but am usually really slack at improving it, even after multiple injuries due to weak glutes and tight hip flexors! My right glute is also my weakest. I especially struggled with the last exercise of reaching the leg behind! Really feeling the burn in my glutes after these workouts! Many thanks again!!

  • Je suis tombée sur ta publication hier soir sur IG. Ce matin, je me sentais encore une fois engourdie dans mon corps et un petit mal de dos (changement de routine quotidienne due au Covid, ça laisse quelques traces). Je viens de faire ta vidéo, je suis sûre qu’elle m’aura fait du bien, j’ai bien sentie mes hanches et mes petits muscles fessiers en fin de vidéo, ça a chauffé. Je tâcherai de revenir plus souvent sur tes vidéos pour compléter mes habitudes de coureuse à pied sur chemins et croiser mes petites séances de yoga. Merci Marjolaine.
