Post-Run Core: Single-Leg Raise Planks

Adding single-leg raises to your standard planks helps isolate and strengthen some of the smaller abdominal muscles. They can also reveal muscle imbalances, and correcting those small imbalances can help prevent injury and strengthen your running overall.

1. GET SET

Start in a standard elbow-plank position.

2. ACTIVATE CORE

Maintain a tight core all the way through; shoulder blades pulled back, lower abs pulling up (it’s okay if your hips are up just a tad as long as the lower abs are pulling up and underneath you.

3. RAISE ONE FOOT

Lift one foot 12 in. off the ground, keeping your leg straight and hips square. Be careful not to let them tilt sideways toward your stationary leg.
