So, adding strength training to your routine can have a big impact on your performance and injury prevention. Here are some strength exercises that will help you to run stronger and find your edge. The focus is on core and hip stability along with run-specific coordination. Always keep in mind quality over quantity. Aim for 1–3 strength session per week.
