Improve efficiency & reduce injury risk with strength training.

“Whether you’re a seasoned runner, or getting ready for your first big race, it is critical to incorporate strength training into your race workouts. Taking time to add strength training techniques to your running regimen has been proven to help make you a more efficient runner, and help reduce the risk of injuries,” says Baylor, Scott & White Health Physical Therapist Thad Thibodeaux.

“There are many effective ways to implement strength training. In the beginning, what’s most important is that you out what works best for you individually. Don’t be afraid of formal routines and counting repetitions, just introducing yourself to the exercises and getting comfortable with equipment at your local gym is the most important thing.”
