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.


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.

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?


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

Why More Runners Need to Make Time for Injury Prevention

No runners want to be injured, but most of us wind up with a running related injury from time to time. While some might say that running injuries are an inevitability, there are many running coaches-myself included-that would disagree with that statement.

And my guest today disagrees as well.
