Strong hips are everything for runners. It is so weird for me not to be able to work on them right now!

Oh man, it IS all about the hips and glutes!! These are some of my favorite exercises and I definitely try to do them regularly.

Great job -doing them regularly is the key!!


Strong hips are so important, thanks for sharing some great exercises! I love clamshells -those, bridges, and Pilates have worked magic for me in staying injury-free.

Pilates is a great way to work on overall strength -I haven’t had the chance to do it in ages, but I really do love it when I can!


clams and I are buddies.


When thinking about strength training, many people focus on the big muscle groups -legs, arms, shoulders. etc. But one area that should be part of your training plan as a runner is hip strength. Hip weakness leads to a number of common running injuries, including: IT band pain, runner’s knee, and piriformis syndrome.

There are 4 hip exercises that I include quite often in training plans with runners. You can cycle a few of these into your weekly strength training plan or complete the series after a few runs each week. You can use resistance bands or loop for these exercises. I also recommend standing on an unstable surface for the hip extension & abduction, once you have mastered the movements on a stable surface.

Hip Strength Exercises


Monster Walks -2 x 10 in each direction


Clamshell -2 x 15-20 on each side


Hip Extension -2 x 15-20 one each leg


Hip Abduction -2 x 15-20 one each leg

While you want to include some hip strength exercises year-round, when you’re struggling with injury (or early symptoms of injury) I recommend including all four exercises 2-3 times per week. In many situations, you can make significant improvement after just a few weeks of focus on hip strength exercises!


What is your favorite hip strength exercise?
