Cross Country Specific Personal Training
Resistance training that is proven to result in a stronger endurance runner. Important components to focus on for an effective resistance weight program include: core strength, injury prevention, flexibility, sprint power, and running posture. Resistance training is not reserved just for the weight room but should include activities that increase flexibility. When evaluating an endurance resistance program for Cross Country it is important to provide a variety of exercises that address the demands of endurance training.
An increased muscle size means increased strength, which can enhance performance. Research reveals that strength training does not affect a muscle’s contraction time and therefore will not slow one down, actually many athletes have shown increased speed of movement. If done properly strength training can increase bone mineral content, thus guarding against stress fractures and providing a safety factor in the cases of falls by increasing the bones density. For the connective tissue, physiological adaptations in ligaments and tendons due to strength training may help prevent injuries.
