I like my stretches like I like my running routes = Easy.
You (or your running buddy) asked for my fave IT Band stretches in the @runeatrepeat stories.
IT Band syndrome is super common in female runners.
🚫 Tight IT band = Knee Pain
3 Easy IT Band Stretches for Runners
These 3 Stretches are easy to do & public place friendly!!
[ I like a deep lunge & pigeon pose too – but they’re kinda dramatic for the park. 🤸🏽♀️💯 ]
@runeatrepeat – Great strength training session today! And a walk. Taking an extra rest day this week to let my knee relax.
- Seated twist stretch
2. Seated Figure Four Stretch – this is a variation of the figure four stretch where you lay on the ground.
3. Standing Side Stretch – this one looks too easy but if you’re super tight, you’ll feel it! I am super tight so I can really feel this one when I keep a bend in my knee, core tight and lean to the side to stretch all along the side body.
What are you doing today??
