Don’t Forget to Strengthen Your Feet! Wait, What?

Running injuries and strength training exercises for runners are easily two of the topics I talk about most on this website.

Why?

Well, with running injuries it’s what I know the most about and where my real expertise in the running world lies. I may never be the worlds greatest runner or running coach, but if you got a problem, (Yo!) I’ll solve it! (Get it?) 

Or at least, I’ll help you solve it.

And strength training gets talked about a fair amount because I think it’s important and I think it can do wonders to help many of the most common running injuries.

But in all of my strength training videos, at least until now, I’ve never mentioned some of the most important exercises you can do to specifically target one of the most overlooked (and thus, most problematic) areas on a runner: the feet.

Not My Feet. Sorry.

The Best Strength Training Equipment for Runners (with Video)

If you’ve been following along with any of my content for the past few years, you know that I’m a big believer in the benefits of strength training for runners.

More and more, it seems that runners are starting to come around to the idea of regular strength training, which is a good thing.

Yet many runners are still struggling with understanding what an effective strength training routine consists of, which is why I’ve done several videos in the past year demonstrating simple and effective routines designed specifically for runners.

One of the common threads in most of those videos from the past is that each of the exercises involves virtually no exercise equipment.

And that’s by design.

You do not need to to join a gym or buy any fancy strength training equipment for runners in order to get a challenging, effective, and beneficial workout.

That said…

Body Weight Training Can Get a Bit Boring

You can combine the dozens of the equipment free strength training exercises that I’ve talked about before in an infinite amount of ways in order to keep your workouts from getting boring.

Shoot, I mix up the routine for almost every workout, just because I hate doing the same exercises ad nauseam.

Yet even with all of the possibilities that exist, you can get even more variety if you add just one or two pieces of equipment to the mix.

A Strength Training Routine for Runners: Feb/Mar 2016

How have you been doing with your strength training?

Let’s be honest, it’s easy to get off track when it comes to consistent strength training as runners even though we know how important it can be in terms of avoiding injuries, improving performance, and maintaining overall body functions.

If you need a new routine to get you back in the strength training saddle, or if you just want to add a little spice to your current strength training routine, today’s video will do just that.

I’m switching things up a little bit this go round. Gone is the idea of doing 2-3 sets of the circuit of exercises.

Instead, we will be doing a certain number of reps of each exercise, resting as needed, before moving on to the next exercise on the list. Once you finish the last exercise, you’re set for the day.

Sounds easy enough, right?

Hehehehe….

Enter your info below, and I’ll send you the PDF guide outlining the Feb/Mar 2016 strength training routine ASAP.
