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 2 is for you if:
•You have been running for more than a few years and have progressed in your speed
•You have experience with strength training and weight training, and access to heavier weights and resistance either at home or in the gym
•You have been somewhat consistent, or at least have some experience, with core, hip and glute, and upper body strength and pre-hab routine
•You are looking to increase weight or resistance of previous strength training
•Levels 2 & 3 of FAST Guides (especially in FAST HALF & FAST MARATHON) are the best fit for your running goals. Note: even if you’ve done Level 2 of one of the FAST Guides, if you don’t have strength training experience, you will be better suited for Level 1 of FAST STRENGTH.
Level 2 is intended to build upon previous experience with strength training or make your training more run specific, utilizing weight from the start and increasing in intensity.
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!
