Endurance Athlete Resistance Training

Resistance training for endurance athletes is a must in regards to improved performance, resiliency to injury and keeping the body structurally balanced. A strong structure for endurance type athletes is essential to movement efficiency and durability within their sport of choice. Unfortunately, most endurance athletes train for endurance in the gym, when they should be focused on strengthening the body and increasing protective muscle tissue with traditional strength training principles. The difference for endurance athletes is the volume and frequency in which they strength train. 1-3 well programmed, specific training sessions per week is going to have fantastic carry over while keeping the body primed for the sport of endurance racing. The myth of putting on too-much muscle with 1-2 days per week of strength training, is exactly that.  However, if reduced injuries, stronger mechanics and improved performance is the goal, this class is for you.
