The Best Core Strengthening Exercises for Runners (with Video)

 

For many runners (and people in general) “core exercises” are little more than some crunches or sit ups.

Yet your abdominal muscles are just one component of your core, and those crunches/sit ups aren’t doing much for your lower back, hips, glutes, or obliques.
