What is it?
StrongStrides is an online strength training platform developed by brothers Dr. Wes and Dr. AJ Gregg out of Flagstaff, Arizona (my former strength coaches and physios). In an effort to create a streamlined yet efficient way for runners in particular to build strength and proper biomechanics in order to be the fastest and best athletes they can be. StrongStrides has a starting place and plan for any skill level whether you are just a beginner or more advanced (I still use the StrongStrides plan created for me by Dr. AJ Gregg as my primary strength routine!). To learn more and get more detailed information please visit their website at: StrongStrides Website.
Why is strength training for runners important?
I could quite literally go on and on about the benefits of strength training for runners! Long story short, it helps you avoid injury and become stronger and thus you become faster. For more on how I feel about strength training see: Why the weight room is my friend.
How can I help?
Over the last year I had the opportunity to work and train closely with Dr. Wes and AJ Gregg where I was able soak in and learn from their expertise (they have coached numerous world class athletes and Olympians). Combined with my extensive background in strength training as well as my passion for how important it is to runners, I want to help you use strength training to become the fastest and strongest runner you can be.
