QT: A Consistent Training Schedule May Be Boring, but It’s Effective AF!


Every Monday morning, I sit down at the computer and update the training plans of all of my coaching clients.

For whatever reason, this week it really struck how repetitive most of the plans end up being.

While I pride myself on creating unique plans for each client, once a client finds the routine that works for him or her things start to look pretty much the same week in and week out.

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.

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!
