My strength training regime will revolve around a rotation of exercises performed for 5 minutes a day only. I will do the first set to failure. Then do as many more as I can before the 5 minutes is up. Then 10 minutes of Yoga, this is simply doing Yoga videos from YouTube.

One of the exercises I will be doing it the humble yet effective Press Up. It is of course a upper body exercise, that targets the Chest and Shoulders. However it is an excellent exercise for engaging the core too. Building a good core is fundamental to maintaining your running technique when you become tired.

I would say my strength training has 2 goals.

Firstly, to build strength and flexibility to improve my running.

Secondly, I am losing quite a bit of weight/fat at the moment. I don’t want to look skinny and frail, I want to look athletic. So if I put on a bit of lean muscle, I would obviously look super hot haha.
