Team Reach Training

Strength & Conditioning, Obstacle Course Racing, Endurance
Taylor Haney

More often than not, runners and cyclists neglect purposeful strength training. But why? It seems most endurance athletes solely focus on the modality of their respective sport and worry that ancillary training will hurt their performance. They couldn't be more wrong. 

It also seems many of these athletes don't know what to do when it comes to practical strength training. We've got these athletes covered with our Enhanced Strength for Endurance Athletes series. 

This program gives you 2 full-body strength training days per week - with a focus on: 1) Power and Strength,  2) SAQ and Hypertrophy, and 3) Stability, Balance, and Hypertrophy. We go beyond just simple strength training. We program proper warm-ups and accessory exercises that will take your overall strength, stability, balance, and confidence to another level. This program comes with 8 unique sessions that could be repeated over several months.
