Jogging with a Stroller

Jogging with a stroller…. this becomes a necessity for many moms if you want any kind of regular cardio workout. But there are some common pitfalls that may cause you to end up with injury instead of joy or fitness.

The biggest reason to push your stroller single-handed? It allows for more of the natural trunk rotation required for shock absorption and momentum generation in optimal running mechanics.

When we lock our arms in place, we also lock our spine and abdomen. We don’t allow the freedom of movement or normal function of the deep core system.

Did you know that running can actually be good for diastasis recti? But not if you lock your abs in place and don’t allow them to move normally!
