8-Week Strength Training Program for Runners

Turn your body into a strong, efficient running machine from home

Why Strength Training is the Best Cross-Training for Runners?

  • Build stronger muscles.
  • Muscles develop more capillaries to receive more blood.
  • Your body becomes more efficient at creating energy.
  • Reduces your chances of injury.
  • Helps you lose weight by accelerating your metabolism.
  • More speed with less effort.

Improve Performance Up to 4.2%

Two strong indicators of running performance are:

  1. Running Economy
  2. vVO2max
A 2007 research by J.Mikkola et al. of the Research Institute of Olympic Sports found that 8 weeks of a strength training program in endurance athletes helped them improve as much as 3.5% their running economy and 4.2% their vVO2max.
 
Resulting in faster times in all their races.

What Makes This Program Effective

Designed for Runners

Every exercise of every workout in the program is designed to help improve your performance as a runner.

The program also pays a lot of attention to your core strength, stability and balance. We dedicate one day a week to help you improve in these areas.

Adaptable - Work on your Weaknesses

We believe that every runner is different, and that you have to work on your weaknesses in order to improve.

As the saying goes, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

Every other week the program coaches you to select the best workout based on your weaknesses, you will be able to choose the best path for your specific situation.

Proven Results

This is the exact strength training program that our athlete Kelly Finney followed after her knee surgery to repair her meniscus.

In her first half-marathon after the surgery she was able to run in 01:52:54 her best time by 10 minutes.

You can add this strength training program to your current running plan, and by the end of the 8 weeks you will feel and see the difference in your running times.
