About the program

Strength and mobility training is an important part of any well-rounded running program. But what workouts should you be doing while training for your race? And when should you be doing them? This program answers both. This program is broken up into 5 phases based on how far away you are from your event. Each phase contains 1-3 workouts per week. Start from the beginning or jump ahead to the week that corresponds to how far away you are from your event. The workouts are a mix of traditional strength training, mobility drills, plyometrics, and stretching that are designed to enhance your running routine. The overall workout volume gets strategically lighter as your event approaches in an effort to promote recovery from the cumulative demands of training but still help you maintain strength and achieve peak performance on race day. This program also offers guidance on when you should do each workout by providing example weekly training schedules for each phase.

    Frequently asked questions

    I'm in the middle of training for a marathon or half marathon, is this program right for me?
    YES! "What strength workouts should I be doing while training for my marathon" is one of the questions I get asked the most, and one of the main reasons I created this program. This program is also suitable for any other endurance event, not just marathons and half marathons. Start from the beginning or jump ahead to the week that corresponds with how far away you are from your event.
    Does this program include running?
    No. This program does not include running. Rather, it contains a series of strength and mobility workouts that are designed to supplement your running program by helping you maintain strength and reduce risk of injury as you train for your next PR.
    What are the goals of this program?
    The goals of this program are to help you maintain strength, reduce risk of injury, and optimize athletic performance on race day.
    How do I fit these workouts into my running schedule?
    This program is broken up into five phases. There are 1-3 workouts programed per week, depending on which phase you are in. Example weekly training schedules for each phase are provided inside the program. If you are looking for a personalized training schedule, then please don't hesitate to contact me regarding online personal training options.
    Who are these workouts for (skill-level)?
    The workouts are designed for all levels. Beginners should go slow, use less weight, and focus on form. For optimal results, it is recommended that you develop a base of running combined with strength training before you begin this program, but that is not required. If you are looking for a program to help build a base, try one of the Pump + Run programs (available with a subscription to my app).
    What equipment do I need to participate?
    This program assumes that you have access to a full service gym with standard gym equipment. However, depending on your experience level and knowledge of movement variants, you should be able to do most of the workouts at home if you have access to some or all of the following equipment: * Bands (loop and long) * Dumbbells * Pilates ball * Barbell with weights * Bench, box, or chair (some form of sturdy, elevated structure) * Sliding discs If you need equipment, checkout my Amazon storefront. The link can be found on my website. https://www.runningfitnessdude.com/
    Are the workouts in each phase the same?
    We will be using many of the same movements throughout the program. That being said, the workouts change from phase to phase, and the workouts within each phase are similar but not identical. There is some variety mixed into to keep the workouts interesting from week to week.
    Warmups?
    Each workout includes suggested warmup movements designed to help prime your body for high performance activity.
    Modifications?
    Yes. Modifications are included within each workout for some of the more challenging movements and/or those that may require more equipment. There is also an additional modification and tips section inside the program that you can refer to any time.
    Why do the workouts get strategically lighter?
    Reducing the overall volume and intensity of gym workouts as your event approaches is an athletic optimization strategy. Here are some of the reasons why it is a good strategy: 1. Recovery. As you approach race day, your body needs more time to recover from increased running miles as well as the cumulated stress of weeks/months of training. By reducing the intensity and volume of your strength workouts, you give your body an opportunity to repair itself. You want to get to the starting line with fresh legs, not tired ones. 2. Injury prevention. Marathon training places significant stress on your muscles, tendons, and joints. By tapering gym workouts, you may decrease the risk of overuse injuries that could sideline you from the race. One of the primary goals of strength training during a marathon cycle should be to mitigate risk of injury (not contribute to it). However, your strength training may actually increase your risk of injury if continue to strength train at the same high volume and intensity while simultaneously increasing the stress put on your body through running. 3. Performance optimization: Tapering has been shown to improve performance in endurance events like marathons. By reducing training volume, you give yourself a chance to recover and adopt to the demands of training. This can lead to a better race-day performance and a higher likelihood of achieving your goals. Of course, reducing volume by itself is not enough. You also need to be strategic in the types of movements you are doing. This program will help you optimize performance on race day by showing you 1) the right things to be doing 2) at the right times.
    Are there upper body workouts included in this program?
    The workouts in this program focus primarily on the lower body and core. You will work some upper body muscles in the process, but there are no upper body specific workouts in this program. Note: You can access a library of on-demand upper body workouts by subscribing to my app.
    How long is each workout?
    The length of each workout varies depending on several factors, including how deep you are into your training cycle. Generally though, the workouts are between 20 minutes and 1 hour.

    About John Gaset

    Let's talk

    I'm a husband, father of 2, strength and mobility coach, entrepreneur, Garmin running ambassador, and attorney. I quit my job as a partner at a national law firm and jumped back into a full time career in fitness after my dad lost his battle with cancer. Now I'm on a mission to help everyone achieve their goals and lead healthy, active, and complete lives. I'm not 20-something and know *exactly* what it's like to live in the real world with a stressful job and family obligations. I give practical advice that is actually useful, and while my workouts are unique, they are extremely effective and suitable for all. These are the same type of workouts I personally do to stay strong, athletic, and aesthetic.
