Coach Rob starts the week off with the first of 3 shows on specific strength training guidance for runners and it’s a big show! Get your notepad and pencil out.

With the combination of last week’s show on periodization of strength training and today’s show on what workouts I give runners a runner could create their very own periodized strength training, plan!





On Today’s show Coach Rob will cover:

  • What strength is
  • How runners benefit from resistance training
  • When and how often runners should strength train
  • 6 types of strength training to consider
  • Primary muscles used while running
  • My top workouts for runners
  • Busting some strength training myths for runners
  • Special concerns for runners
