Can strength training improve your running?
I am 34 and have been running since I was a child. I enjoy various other sports on and off, such as Judo, Football, even Rugby (though I’m only little!) but running is always there. During the last 15 years, I have also taken to weight training and weightlifting (which are topics for an entirely different article). I work as a PE Instructor for the Civil Service. I have gained many qualifications within a gym based environment.
In my experience, weight training or resistance training is invaluable to runners if done correctly and in combination with your running.
