My conversation with Richard Blagrove
We have explored the ideas around WHY you should implement strength training into your running routine, now let’s discuss the HOW. Season 2 of the Run Smarter Podcast focuses on resistance training to become a better runner. This is because all runners need to learn the benefits strength training can have on your running career. Also, there are a lot of gym myths and misconceptions circulating in the running community. In Strength training 3, a lot of runners are worried about hitting the gym because they don’t want to lose flexibility and become a heavy, bulky gym go-er. We dispel these myths on today’s episode.
