Minimalist Strength Plan for Runners – Part 2


This is a follow-up post to Minimalist Strength Plan for Runners-Part 1

I would suggest checking out part 1 and making sure you can stick to that plan for 1 month before moving on to Part 2. Remember, to gain strength you need to take your time and not skip steps.

If you have loyally followed Part 1 you should be feeling stronger as a runner and feel confident busting out the 3 exercises in Part 1–push-ups, squats and planks.

I suggest doing Part 1, two times a week. And, adding Part 2, one-two times a week.

This 9-minute session supplements Part 1 with some tougher exercises that will fire more muscles to help you feel even stronger. Remember, this plan is not about getting bigger. It is about feeling stronger, running stronger, feeling better about your strength and being more toned.

9-minute Minimalist Strength Plan for Runners–Part 2

Pull-ups-As many as you can do in 30 seconds.

30 second rest.

Lunges-As many as you can do in 30 seconds.

30 second rest.

One-Arm Plank-30 seconds.

30 second rest.

Repeat this circuit 3-5 times. If you feel it is too easy, do the exercises for 45 seconds with a 15 second break. 1-2 times a week.

Be determined to stick to this plan for at least a month.

After one month of consistently following this plan, check out Part 3.
