Strengthen and Stretch! The 12 Moves All Runners Need to Do
9 of 12
Yoga Pose 3: Three-Legged Dog
What it does:
Stretches the calves and hamstrings and strengthens the arms.
. Step both feet together so your big toes are touching.
Shift weight into your hands and your left foot equally. Lift the right leg up to the ceiling. Try to keep your shoulders parallel with the ground, and gaze at your left thigh or up toward your belly. To feel the stretch in your left hamstring, try to keep pressing your left heel down toward the ground.
Stay here for five or more breaths, then lower your right leg down and switch sides.
