Strength Training for Runners

There are still a lot of misconceptions about running and how to best train runners to minimize injuries and enhance performance.

Let’s simplify running a little more.

Running is a series of little jumps. The rear leg has to propel the body forward. The stride leg has to absorb force.

To minimize your chance of running related injuries and enhance your running performance, you need to understand both of these concepts.

The key to both of these is strength training. We can build tissue capacity to handle these forces much more efficiently, especially if we build a specific strength training program for runners with these two concepts in mind.

I discuss this and so much more in my latest article featuring an excellent interview I did with running guru Chris Johnson.

    by Dan Blewett on December 4, 2018 at 11:00 am

    There are many mental factors that can hinder an athlete’s performance. A major one is the fear of negative outcomes on the field—giving up hits and runs, striking out in big situations, and suffering ridicule, embarrassment, and playing time consequences. Mentally removing oneself from attachment and fear of these consequences can improve performance, and this can be done, in part, by visualizing negative outcomes.

This Week’s Stuff You Should Read From Around the Web

Changing Gymnastics Culture: It’s Time to Have Some Really Hard Conversations

My man Dave Tilley wants to have a hard conversation about gymnastics culture.  Dave has a brand new book available, and because he wants to help the sport so bad, it’s absolutely free.  I talk to Dave about this almost daily and I’m not sure anyone is more passionate about changing the sport.  But for Dave it’s more than that.  He actually articulated the changes the he proposes, heck that need to happen, so well that I’m going to be shocked if this book doesn’t have a huge impact.  Even if you aren’t into gymnastics, this book can be applied to many other sports as well.
