I hear a lot of runners talk about strength training, and honestly, not all of what they say makes sense.
For example, runners tend to think they need to do a lot of reps with super light weights or they’ll get too jacked and it will hinder their running performance. Really?
I get it though. I’ve bought into a lot of these ideas over the years, but I’ve come to realize that there’s a lot of information that we just believe to be true and based on facts… and well, it just isn’t.
So in this episode of the Running Lean podcast, I bust a bunch of these myths and misconceptions runners have around strength training.
I also outline the many benefits that strength training actually provides, especially for endurance athletes.
