Have you just starting started running? Thinking of starting? Or struggling to improve or avoid injury? Have you tried supplementing your running with weight training?
This YouTube video is Matt's story and testimonial of how consistently lifting weights for the last year has helped his running and has seen him hit personal best times in all of the distances that he has raced in.
Matt has always been a runner, consistently attending running training and racing through the year so to see and hear the improvement that he has seen since strength training is fantastic.
He has pushed out of his comfort zone (he loves to run) and complemented his training with something that is less enjoyable for him. The results speak for themselves, this is just one person's story of why this kind of cross training really should be part of every runners regime. Ultimately it will mean your running improves and you can get even more enjoyment out of the sport you love to do.
