Strength training has many benefits for runners. We already know from the research that strength training can:
1.Improve running efficiency
2.Improve running speed
3.Improve muscle power
4.Reduce the risk of injuries
5.Support the healing process (rehab protocols for common running-related injuries like IT band syndrome, shin splints, runners knee, Achilles tendonitis, and stress fractures utilize strength training to trigger the healing response)
Low back pain is one of the most common health complaints. As much as four out of five adults will experience significant low back pain at some point in their lifetime. There are many causes of low back pain, however, the most likely cause of low back pain is a muscle or ligament strain and a general lack of movement.
