Stronger runners are better runners! But why planks?

  • They work more than your abs (from your lower back to your glutes, planks are a complete core exercise!)
  • Beginners can start with planks (advanced runners can do more challenging versions)
  • With 11 plank variations, you'll always have room to grow with this core workout
  • Planks enhance stability (helping you reduce excess motion and run with more economy)
