Your excuses for not incorporating strength training into your training plan are no longer valid! I know what’s it’s like to pile on the miles, spend time foam rolling and stretching only to not have time left for strength training. However, strength training is something we must absolutely do!
It’s hard to cram everything into a training week, so I created a simple to do, body-weight workout for those times when there just isn’t enough time to go to the gym.
This workout is also great for those of you who may not have stepped into a weight room in quite sometime.
This workout only takes 15 minutes to complete. Aim to do it three days per week on alternating days. If you happen to have dumbbells, kettlebells or a medicine ball fell free to incorporate those to make this workout more challenging.
Don’t forget, strength training will make you a stronger runner, help prevent injuries and quite possibly even help you set a few PRs. It will also improve your overall health and fitness by helping you to increase your lean muscle mass, prevent osteoporosis and maybe even help drop a few pounds.
