If you’re looking to return to running postpartum, strength training will be a great asset to strengthening those muscles that need to be engaged and functioning properly for running. These exercises can be done with or without a miniband!
Perform each exercise for 30-45seconds for 4-6 rounds. Focus on engaging those muscles around your hips and glutes and coordinating your breath with your movement.
