Should Distance Runners Lift Weights? Strength Training for Distance Runners (800m – 5k/10/Marathon)



Should distance runners lift weights? Yes they should. In this video I discuss the great benefits elicited by having a strength program. I talk about how to weight train, what exercises to do, when to do them, what reps/sets/weights and how to fit it into your schedule.
