Is core stability important for runners?

Yes, very! By simply incorporating some core training into your programme you could actually become faster and stronger without doing any additional running! Core training develops strengths and stability in the muscles that lie deep in the abdomen and connect to the spine, pelvic girdle and shoulders.

This enables you to better control whole body movement as you run and leads to improved posture, form and efficiency.
