Strength Training For Runners - Jason Scotts



If you are a runner and you choose not to do any form of strength training then you are going to increase the chances of having to stop as you develop some kind of injury.

Many runners that do not believe that lifting weights is crucial are sadly mistaken. In fact even though running itself may not actually cause an injury it does help to highlight any weaknesses that you have and which may prevent you from seeing any improvements taking place even though you may be running every day. There is no better way to determine what needs to be done to improve our bodies than by listening to it when out running and making changes.

If you are able to pinpoint your weaknesses then you can work on strengthening them in the early part of your running career. It will also help to make your musculoskeletal system far stronger, which in turn will help make your life much more rewarding later on because you are likely to be virtually free of any kind of pain.

The major problem that the majority of runners are faced with when deciding to take up strength training is that they have no idea of what form they should take up, when it should be done and how it should be done. It is for this reason I have decided to write this book to help you create the perfect strength training for runners program for you.

When it comes to creating the perfect strength training program for you there are certain basic key features that need to be followed. First you must make sure that your program ensures that you are lifting weights. Second you must make sure that you are lifting weights consistently and finally you must make sure that you are lifting weights correctly and at the right intensity.

When I talk about you lifting weights consistently what I mean is that you should be lifting weights at least 2 or 3 times each week over a period of several months. This will then help you to build the right strength base.

Whereas when I am talking about you lifting weights correctly I am referring to you performing each exercise to build up strength in your body safely as well as in the most effective way possible. This means lifting the weights using the right techniques with the right amount of muscle control.

Finally when I talk about you lifting weights using the right intensity it relates to the actual amount of weight that you are using for each exercise. Also it relates to how difficult each exercise is during each training session you undertake.

There are several reasons why anyone who enjoys distance running should improve their overall strength in relation to their upper body and legs.

Reason 1 - You will find it easier managing workloads that are far more intense.

Reason 2 - The much stronger your muscular strength then of course the risk of you causing injury to your joints is reduced as you are placing less stress on their connective tissue such as the ligaments, tendons and cartilage. You will also find that this form of training helps to maintain the integrity of the joints.
