Runners: do you warm up when you go for a run? If you answered NO (or like most people we polled, NEVER), this 10 minute core activator is your new best friend! Designed with the specific needs of runners in mind, it takes place outside, and you don't have to get down on the ground to get your core fired up and ready for a faster, more efficient run. Don't miss Victoria's tips at the end when her runners David and Joe ask her about proper running form! Visit Victoria at her studio on NYC's Upper East Side: Pilates66.

    Love this. Especially the explanations after the exercises to access more power during a run using the bigger muscles of the back side.

    I say Im a racewalker but i just try to walk fast. I get frustrated because Iam fatigued affterwards of walking 3-6 miles. What you are saying to use your abs to propel thee leg forward and gluts for push off makes sense. I am going to try to concentrate on that and hopefully helps the fatigue level.

    This is great. More please!

    That was explained so well – about using the glutes, catching your body with the abs, letting your legs move beneath you. It is something I think about but find so
    hard to do!
