I teach this exact exercise several times a day as well as a few variations almost on the daily since the basis of most of our patients are runners. This exercise can never be done slowly enough, anyone can do this movement quickly but slow down and act like you have a hot cup of coffee in your hands. Almost everyone does these exercises quickly and while there is nothing wrong with that, slower is almost always better. Check out all the following videos on how to practice this excellent prehab movement for most runners struggling with “typical runner stuff”.
