Dynamic Warmup Stretches for Runners

Runner’s World offers a series of dynamic warmup stretches for runners in this educational video. I have had good luck with adding a movement similar to a leg lift to my warmups. I feel like it helps warm up my iliotibial band and my hip. I start every running workout with 5 – 10 minutes of walking, then dynamic stretches. Be sure to keep running muscles warm while you stretch, or walk for a few minutes before you start your actual run.
