The Best Cross-Training Moves for Trail Runners

Single-Leg Hop-and-Stop

“A combination of power, balance, and control, hop-and-stops offer everything a trail runner needs,” Wilcock says. The goal of the exercise is to hop up and land on the same leg, coming to a complete stop, without letting your other foot touch the floor. You then hold the position for a couple seconds before performing another hop on the same leg. Do three to five hops on one leg before switching sides. Complete three to five total sets.
