Exercise of the Week: Monster Walks

monsterwalks

Coach Kristie demonstrates the exercise of the week, Monster Walks.

Using tubes (as shown), or with a resistance band around the ankles stand with feet shoulder width apart, then step to the side, then return to start position.   Repeat for 4 sets of 10-15 repetitions on one side, then switch to the other.

You can monster walk to the side, the front and back or even in a “box” where you step front, side, back, then the other side.   You can also continue to move in the direction of the walk vs returning to the start.

This exercise is one every runner and cyclist should have in their arsenal.  Great for glute and hip strength to prevent imbalances due to the repetitive nature of running and cycling.
