What if I told you that you could improve your running form, increase your stride power, handle more mileage and harder workouts, prevent injuries, and recover faster? With specific strength exercises for runners, you’ll accomplish all of this.
The best exercises for runners train movements, not muscles—so stick to compound, multi-joint exercises (and make sure your form is correct!). Some of the classics include , , (or if you're still learning a pull-up) bench press, and step-ups onto an elevated platform. These exercises target functional movements that we do in real life: bending down, pushing and pulling things, and picking things up.
I only promote products that I trust and in fact, I’ve personally purchased the latest Rebel Strength Guide for myself. I know a lot about strength exercises for runners but I wanted a detailed program to work from. The videos of every exercise also help for some of the more complex movements.
What I really like about the is that you can use it on your own terms. Go at your own pace and explore each workout. With video demonstrations, you won’t stress over how to perform each exercise and you can play it back anytime. Some strength exercises for runners are complex but this feature helps break it down for you.
