When it comes to running related injuries (RRIs), the frontal plane receives considerable attention, especially among recreational female distance runners. A good chunk of research over the past several years has particularly focused on peak hip adduction and contralateral pelvic drop (CPD) during the stance phase of running. So, I thought it would be helpful to share a group of exercises that I routinely use to challenge runners in the frontal plane. My primary goal in prescribing these exercises is to simply challenge runners outside of the sagittal plane while building capacity and exposing them to more variable loads. It should also be mentioned that these exercises are used in combination with other interventions such as mirror gait training and step rate manipulation to address impairments related to the frontal plane. At day's end, we must never forget that running is a tri-planar activity!

Nobody can underestimate a runner. Because he is also an athlete. That is the reason why he should the above-mentioned exercises consistently in order to improve his sports performance. Basically, runners face the frontal plane instability while running. Now can anybody tell me- what is frontal plane instability? Well, it is nothing but the loss of control in a runner's frontal plane that plays a huge role in decreasing his speed and agility. This will not only bring his confidence down but also affect his optimal performance. Listen- optimal control in the frontal plane is critical to maximum force production while planting the foot into the ground and to slack up the momentum while changing the direction. Thus, from my point of view, every runner should perform the above frontal plane workouts to keep the running efficiency unharmed.
