I have often been approached by runners that have asked what they could do to better their running program. It is an old school mindset of many runners that they should solely concern themselves with only running for distance to improve their distance and time it takes for them to run it. This is not the case when we are talking about human performance.
To start, the only thing that will enhance any athlete is a highly effective strength and conditioning program. Now when I say strength you probably assume that I mean weightlifting and when I say conditioning you are probably thinking that I am talking about the distance running that you are already participating in. I am not necessarily referring to either one of these. The fact is that an effective strength and conditioning program is one that consists of both variables that can be tied into many forms of RESISTANCE. The resistances that you put on your body such as utilizing your own body-weight, free-weights, kettlebells, or medicine balls all contribute to the overall scope of your total body fitness. This is what will drastically aid you in improving your current running, jogging, or cardio-endurance program. I have to say that it certainly takes more than just running to improve your running. However, if your program is properly planned and structured the good news is that it shouldn’t take additional time to accomplish this either.
To close, if you plan an effective strength and conditioning program then you can no doubt enhance your running strength and endurance. It can even be done by not spending as much time running as you take now.
