Strength & Conditioning Programming for Distance Runners


Strength & Conditioning for distance runners, the final frontier. It is important and a must for the performance minded runner to do. But where to start? What exercises to do? How much? How often? How intense?

As you can see, there is a lot of confusion and questions surrounding strength & conditioning work for the distance runner. There is a variety of information on "the best" strength & conditioning practices for distance runners. Often it is difficult to separate signal from noise. Strength & Conditioning is dynamic instrument in the coach's toolbox. And when you know what you want to get out it you can then best use S&C to your athlete's benefit. 

On January 12th, 2018, at the HPW On Coaching | Mini Workshop in Seattle HPW Director Jonathan Marcus will offer how he programs and prioritizes strength & conditioning work for the High Performance West Pro athletes he coaches. He will clearly outline how he uses strength & conditioning work to compliment running training throughout the year. He'll give you some of his strength & conditioning progressions for you to consider as he tries to make the case why every competitive runner should become as familiar with the gym as they are with the track.
