I have always focused on sharing out the ratios equally when working out in the gym but found an interesting article that I would like to go back to before I get started this week in the gym.
I am particularly interested in the eight rules of strength as a starting point:
- Mechanics first - then resistance
- Rule of balance (some surprises here!)
- Goal oriented training
- Rule of specificity
- Rule of periodization
- Rule of rest and recovery
- Rule of variety
- Rule of consistency
Having never really used the gym specifically for running (only been running less than 1 year) I have a lot to learn about how to use the gym/strength training in the right way to get results for running. Any advice would be appreciated here.
