Don't run out of strength to run
Complementing race preparation with strength training increases the chances of success and reduces the risk of injury
Contrary to what you may believe, the race is a discipline of strength; yes, what you hear, to run, especially when we start in this discipline, what we have to try is to be stronger, since we are performing a cyclical movement, which is repeated about 150-160 times per minute. For example, in an 8km race we will take between 7200 and 7700 strides with their respective impacts on the ground. It is necessary to have enough strength, not only to make a correct gesture but also to withstand the impact. Strength is the factor that will determine the success of the challenge we face with a healthy goal and enjoying the sport. Complementing test preparation, with proper strength training, not only increases the chances of success, but also reduces the chances of injury.
But what does that training have to be like?
A strength program for beginning runners must be complementary to our running session and we can integrate it in a way that does not require lengthening the training time. With it we will strengthen the muscle groups that we use the most when running. This training will ensure a correct posture during the race, strengthen the muscles and balance the system improving our performance and avoiding injuries.
