Strength Training for Runners – Faster, Stronger, Longer

Are you a runner?

Is strength training apart of your training regime?

Strength training has been proven to benefit runners of all abilities. When strength training involves heavy resistance, explosive resistance and plyometric training, you have the capacity to improve your running economy, time trial performance and sprint speed across middle and long distances.

What does this mean for you? Easier faster running.

To have a positive effect on your performance, you need to complete a strength training program 2-3 times per week. Beginning in a supervised session is recommended to learn the correct technique to be able to complete the exercises safely.

Below is a video series of exercises that you can incorporate into your Strength Training Program to help you feel well, move well, perform well.
