Chi Running Core Strengthening Series Part II – The Leg Lift

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Fri Apr 3rd, 2009, 3 comments

Your lower back should remain in contact with the ground when your legs are lifting. When you’re in between lifts, allow your back to resume it’s normal curve.

Great exercise… how many do you recommend?  Should you build up to about 10 per session?

At this point I’m up to about 20 and I don’t think it’s really necessary to go much more than that.

While you are lifting the legs, is the lower back pushed into the floor, or is there still a curve in the back?

What are your thoughts?

ChiRunning began to enrich my life on July 3, 2010 when I read the first 100 pages of the book and went for a run, and just focusing on ankle lift made a difference! My running life continues to transform and create joy! I smile when I run and love every minute. I am thrilled and grateful to be part of this ChiRunning community. Thank you for the opportunity to pursue becoming an Instructor.
