Strength Training for Runners

Strength training is a very popular activity and one that many runners perform alongside their running training.  The motivation to perform strength training varies:

  1. Injury prevention
  2. Improved performance
  3. Improved running efficiency
  4. Protecting the joints
  5. Prevent muscle loss from running (especially in the upper body)
  6. To look good at the beach (maybe this should be at number 1!)

There is compelling evidence that performing strength training exercises can improve your running performance but with such a bewildering array of training options out there how do you chose the best type of training to help achieve your goals? 

Strength training should achieve two things: improve your strength for your chosen activity and improve your strength away from your chosen activity…  To read more about strength training for runners please follow the link or if you are interested in attending a free seminar devoted to strength training for runners, please follow the link here.
