Q&A: S&C training tips/preventing rolled ankles/leg length discrepancy

On today’s Q&A Brodie answers all your questions. Here is what we explore:

1.) What is the amount of time per week one should dedicate to strength training? And is it better to do a couple of longer sessions per week or a little bit most days?

2.) What are some of the best injury-preventing exercises that a distance runner should keep on rotation?

3.) Are there any good exercises to strengthen the ankle to stop it from wanting to roll when the foot goes into a bit of a hole?

4.) What are some signs/symptoms of a leg length discrepancy and does it matter? Additionally, could sloped roads and trails be causing a “pseudo-discrepancy”?
