Strength Training for Distance Running Performance

Distance running is the most popular sports in Hong Kong. However, strength training has largely been overlooked by endurance athletes. Adequate strength level not only improves distance running performance, but also allow one to sustain the prolonged high volume of training and minimize risks of developing chronic injuries such as knee and ankle pain. In this course, participants will engage in effective training progressions to develop muscular endurance and strength for running performances and injury preventions. Exercise variations including eccentric training, reactive strength, proprioception, and rate of force development will be introduced to maximize training specificity for runners.
