Runners often know that strength training can improve their half marathon performance but are not sure how to fit it all in with the running training. If you want to try a strength training program that compliments your running program, and doesn't take up eight days a week, this is for you.
This program is appropriate for runners who can run five to six miles now, and are consistently running between 9-15 miles per week.
Why strength training? Muscles stabilize the joint, so it's essential for runners to strengthen the stabilizer muscles. For example, gluteus medius weakness may cause IT band issues and runner's knee (patella-femoral syndrome). I'll show you exercises to strengthen this muscle to lessen your injury risk.
Muscle weaknesses can result in poor running mechanics, which can lead to injuries. When the stabilizing muscles are not functioning correctly to maintain proper form and alignment, then other muscles will try to compensate (take over the work), which can lead to dysfunction, pain or an injury.
Runners don't need to spend hours in the gym performing bench presses and bicep curls, but instead, we need to focus on runner-specific strength to improve our running. For example, instead of the bench press to strengthen your chest, work on push-ups, They strengthen the same muscles, but push-ups engage the whole body and build core strength and stability which will benefit running performance.
