Use the Hurdle Step to Test Your Running Mechanics

An easy way to test or observe your running mechanics is to use the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) Hurdle Step approach. As you will see in the video, this technique will enhance proper running mechanics, ensure great hip mobility, and allow you to run as efficiently as possible.

Tight hips, tensor fasciae latae muscle, and a lack of core stability can all be highlighted by this simple exercise. So follow the technique highlighted in our video and get your hip mobility back to where it should be!
