How to Perform a pedestal routine to improve your running
In this video, Coach Jay demonstrates the pedestal routine, which utilizes aspects of yoga and Pilates. There are three factors which should be taken into account before starting: first, you should maintain your breathing throughout. Next, make sure to engage the muscles around your core, and make sure that you have a straight line from your foot to your shoulder in each exercise. Keeping this in mind, begin by holding a push-up position for 30 seconds, keeping your body straight. Next, turn over and prop yourself up in a backwards push-up position and hold for 30 seconds. Finally, do a side pedestal, where you hold yourself up in a straight line using one arm at a time. Do each side for 20 seconds. By following this exercise routine, you should be able to tone your core muscles effectively.
