- Leg warm-up
- Knee mobility
Heel kicks or “butt kickers” improve leg turnover (stride frequency). Butt kickers are used by runners to increase their speed and to strengthen the hamstrings. Butt kickers are great addition to the dynamic warm-up portion of our workout. The objective is to run faster and avoid injuries. Heel kicks will help you achieve both objectives.
- Jog forward as you try to kick your heels to your butt.
- Rather than taking long strides, move your feet up and down quickly.
- Swing your elbows and move your hands forwards and backwards.
- Pulling the knees forward as the heels kick back
