The Top 3 Strength Training Exercises for Runners | Week 43 | Movement Fix Monday

Runners generally like running and shy away from strength training to avoid adding muscle mass that demands blood and could potentially slow down running times. However, there is a time, a place, and a use for strength training for runners.

Chris Johnson, PT, from Zeren PT  joins me again this week to talk about the top 3 strength training exercises for runners.

The exercises are:

  1. Weighted toe taps
    1. See our previous post on toe taps  for more details
  2. Single leg deadlifts
    1. See my additional post on owning the single leg deadlift
  3. Weighted Step Ups (no momentum)

Make sure to watch the video to see how each of these are performed as well as Chris' thoughts on WHY runners should add strength training to their overall training regimen.
