Pelvic control tends to be an overlooked area for many runners. What most fail to realize is that the body needs to withstand 2-4 times it’s bodyweight while landing on a single leg. Therefore, proper stabilization and alignment of the pelvis and lower limb needs to be a priority.
Over the years, I have seen so much emphasis on areas outside of pelvic control. Not only do I feel that pelvic control in particular is misunderstood, but it’s actually very overlooked. Fortunately, the research tells us it’s easy to assess and modify so a shift in perspective might allow us to improve running performance and reduce the likelihood of injury to a better degree.
Recently, I held a FREE 60-minute webinar on the topic of pelvic control. It’s my hope that you reflect on this content and weigh it’s relevance alongside your injury history, needs, and running goals. I am confident it will change your thought process on proper stabilization to be the best runner you can be.
