Strength Training for Runners

During Marathon Prep

If you're a runner, strength training is a must. Especially if you are prepping for a long distance run like a marathon. As a Physical Therapist, if I were to build a strength training routine for a runner I would focus on hitting the major muscle groups that are going to support you while you're trying to run. These would include movements like the squat, deadlift, lunge variations, single leg deadlifts, calf raises, suitcase carry and step downs. I would recommend strength training 2 days a week during marathon prep but of course, that can vary depending on the athlete. Hope this video helps you prep well for your next long distance race!
