Running High Knees – Exercise of the Week
The Running High Knees exercise is a dynamic stretching exercise you can use before each of your workouts. Dynamic stretching is used to increase the range of movement, blood and oxygen flow to soft tissues prior to exertion and helps reduce the chances of injury.
- The purpose of the running high knees is to stretch the gluets, quads, lower back and shoulders.
- Perform this exercise by running in an upright position and stay on the balls of your feet.
- Drive your knees up as high as possible, and then down as quickly as possible without leaning backwards.
- Perform this exercise whilst slowly jogging forward but concentrate on moving your legs as fast as possible.
