  • by

Train your myofascial slings and run strong! Do this exercise ➡ KB swing – staggered stance.
.
“Our limbs merely amplify movements that originate within muscles of the spine and trunk”
.
AOS – Anterior oblique sling, is an essential myofascial line when running.

The AOS consists of the external and internal obliques, the opposite side adductor muscle, and the connecting adductor abdominal fascia.
.
The AOS helps us accelerate and decelerate our body.
.
Weakness here will impact performance and can manifest as an injury if left unchecked
.
Such as
Lower back pain
Sacroiliac pain
Groin pain
Knee or ankle issues.
.
This is a great exercise to strengthen from the shoulder to opp hip/knee.
.
Having strength/mobility balanced both sides will create improved running economy for the runner. Hence faster times and bulletproofing against injuries!
.
If you’re familiar with Kettlebells, have already tested your AOS weakness, and want to improve your running (and movement) then this variant swing: Staggered stance (edited from the Summit online exercise library and app), should certainly find its way into your schedule!
