FAST STRENGTH focuses on run specific exercises with an emphasis on lower body, core, and stabilizer muscles that benefit running power and efficiency. The weekly schedule fits seamlessly into any of our FAST Guides with additional guidance on adjustments for when your run schedule adjusts. So whether you're training for a mile or a marathon, FAST STRENGTH will be a great addition to your running schedule!
This is meant to go along with your running training plan & help you prevent injury & increase running power! Every single move is with running in mind. It’s not a cardio program, it’s not HIIT, it’s not doing crazy moves that have nothing to do with running- it’s a pure running strength & prehab program designed to help you get the most out of your strength training so you can run stronger & more efficiently, while minimizing injury risk. It builds & tapers for your race to take all of the guesswork out of training.
FAST STRENGTH includes:
Level 1 is for you if:
•You are newer to running and/or just starting to implement strength training
•You do not have experience or consistency with strength training in the past, even if you have been running for years
•You have not been consistent with core, hip and glute, or upper body strength and pre-hab routine in the recent past
•You do not want to, or do not have access to lift heavier weights and equipment
•Level 1 of FAST Guides (especially in FAST HALF & FAST MARATHON) is the best fit for your running goals
Level 1 is intended to be primarily body weight and adding weight to exercise at your own pace, but weight will be minimal with more reps. This is more of an introduction to strength training, even if you have been a runner for many years.
We want you to improve in every aspect of your running and that includes gaining muscle strength so you can generate more power from your stride to run faster! You’ll gaining stability through your core and legs is a key component to maintaining efficiency and fast paces longer and also drastically reducing your risk of injury so you can train more consistently and gain more fitness!
