What comes to mind first when you think of the the phrase “strength training?” Do you think of big, bulky athletes like football players, baseball players, bodybuilders or powerlifters? What about the leaner and sterotypically scrawnier athletes like swimmers, cyclists, and runners? When it comes to strength training, there are benefits to be gained for all athletes, both strength/power-based athletes as well as endurance athletes.
In this eBook, I will cover:
- What the research tells us about strength training for endurance athletes, including how to best apply strength training specifically to endurance sport
- Practical strength training recommendations so that you can confidently begin applying it to your own training as an endurance athlete
Additionally, I will provide you an Exercise Technique Guidebook which I have included in the Appendix at the end of this eBook. Within this Guidebook, you will find descriptions, pictures, and video overviews for a range of basic exercises, including dynamic warm-up exercises, strength training exercises, plyometric exercises, and static stretching exercises. This Guidebook will help you personalize your strength training routine and will allow you to progress your strength training exercises and add variety to your routine over time.
