We're back with part 4 of our series focused on the all-important glute muscles! Join Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, as she leads us through the single leg glute bridge. Let's do this! Be sure to check out parts 1-3 if you want a full glute strengthening workout.
At Moms on the Run we are deeply saddened to learn of the alarming increase in acts of hate against our Asian friends and neighbors. The recent increases in violence and verbal assaults show a devastating display of a hatred that has no place in our communities and world. It is a reminder that there is much work to be done to create a nation where all people feel safe and welcome.
We all must speak up and act if we are to fight racism in all of the ugly ways it creeps into our society. Actively look for ways to fight hate with love. Be kind. Help a neighbor. Speak out against discrimination. Embrace differences. Seek to learn about other cultures. Appreciate the beauty of diversity. It’s on US to choose unity over divisiveness. Stop Asian hate. We are all in this together.
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
Today's training tip is part 3 of our glutes series featuring the side lying leg raise. Follow along with Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, as she shows us another exercise we can do to strength our glutes. Be sure to go back and watch parts one and two for more glute exercises.
This month we're diving into exercises you can do to strengthen your glutes. When we run, our glutes propel us forward and keep our legs, pelvis and torso aligned. However, when our glutes are weak, they disrupt the kinetic chain and can lead to common running injuries. Here's part two with Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, showing us the 3-way leg raise, which is great work for balance and becoming more efficient and powerful in your stride . Let's go!
