Mike is also Director of Sports Injury Fix – a website aimed at helping the public find the right therapist.

Strength Training for Runners: Is it Such a Simple Approach?

Traditionally, endurance athletes and runners have failed to implement strength training into their regimes, and many common misconceptions regarding the application of strength training to the endurance population still exist.

Recent years have seen an increase in both understanding and prescription of strength training within endurance sports. But is it as simple as getting everyone to strength train? Or should we be more pragmatic in our approach? This presentation examines the evidence, and offers some simple take-home messages for therapists to apply to their practise.
