Strength training is an essential part of any runner's training regimen, and can help runners to:

  • Reduce the risk of injury: Strength training can help strengthen the muscles and joints that are used in running, which can help reduce the risk of injuries such as shin splints, runner's knee, and plantar fasciitis.
  • Improve running economy: Strength training can help runners become more efficient runners, which means they can run at a faster pace for a longer period of time. This is because strength training helps to build muscle, which helps to burn more calories and fat.
  • Boost speed and power: Strength training can help runners increase their speed and power by improving their muscle strength and coordination. This is important for runners who are looking to improve their race times or compete in track events.
