I like these moves because they work the whole hip/butt region and who doesn't like a firm tush?! I've been doing these exercises a couple times a week and haven't felt any hip pain since the race. They also serve as a good warm ups before a run. The real test of my hip/butt strength will be running on a gravel surface similar to the race course. So, enjoy!
