Strength Training for Runners  

 

When executed properly, a strength training program for distance runners can make you a stronger, more efficient runner while reducing your chance of injury.  Below are strength training programs designed for distance runners that focus on core, leg and upper body strength. Incorporate these strength training workouts on your harder effort days, after the workout or run. Leave at least 2 days of rest between each strength training session.
