An Equipment Free Strength Training Routine for Runners (with Video)
You don’t have to look around this site very far to know that I’m a believer in regular strength training for runners.
(Want more examples? Here’s a podcast interview, a post on the importance of a strong core, and answers to common strength training questions/concerns from runners.)
So every couple of months, I put together a short workout (lasting about 15 minutes) designed specifically to help runners shore up the weak spots that are created by running lots and lots of miles.
The workout for November/December is four exercises long, but if you do them correctly you’ll be feeling it!
Fill out the info below and I’ll send you a PDF guide with all of these exercises on it.
If you have any questions about any of these exercises, or anything else related to running and strength training, please let me know and I’ll be happy to answer them for you!
What is Your Favorite Strength Training Exercise and Why?
First of all, fabulous singing this week! And dancing…whoa! Thanks for the video and exercises. I definitely need to make sure and include the strength training on a regular basis. It’s so easy to push it aside and just run, but when you can’t run, because you didn’t do the strength work…you’d think I would learn. 🙂
Hehehe. Believe me, I know how easy it can be to skip the strength training. But it’s important, no doubt about it! And glad you liked the song! 🙂
