Best strength workout for runners

As running is primarily a cardio exercise, adding a strength workout will help take your running to the next level. You’ll gain length strength for those longer runs, plyometric power for sprints and improve your posture for endurance. This workout also helps reduce the risk of injury and helps prevent back pain in runners.
