Home Resistance Training for Runners
My purpose for creating this program is to provide a resistance training plan specifically for runners to supplement their current training or to replace their running training temporarily. I wrote the program with these goals in mind:
Workouts can be done entirely in one’s home
No equipment needed
Improve performance by exercising the muscles most used by runners
Decrease risk of injury by improving mobility and strength in muscles that are commonly imbalanced in runners
Improve or maintain cardiovascular capacity
The program is split into three, 6-week progression options: Maximum Power, Sustained Power, and Endurance. All three progressions have the same stretches and exercises, but they progress in different ways as you make your way through the 6 weeks. You may pick the progression that best matches what you would like to improve most with your training.
