Strength training in runners

Another very interesting research to confirm, if it still needs to be, the importance of strength training (ST) for runners.

These articles confirmed that ST, including heavy resistance, plyometric and explosive training, will make middle and long-distance run quicker.

But you will need to be committed.  The authors recommend t 2 to 3 sessions for 8 to 12 weeks to see an improvement!!
