Regular readers here know how important I think strength training is for runners and really every body. I am religious about my twice a week routine. Lately I have been mixing it up a bit by using slightly heavier weights and incorporating more drop sets. This Drop It Like A Squat Workout combines many of my favorite lower body moves into one killer routine.
Drop It Like A Squat Workout
You will need 3 sets of weights (light, medium and heavy). It’s fine to use dumbbells or kettlebells or a combination of both. After a 15 min warm up of light cardio, start your first set with your heavier weights. As you increase your reps for each set, you drop your weights. Your last set will be your lightest weights with the most reps. After you’ve completed all the moves, cool down with another 15 minutes of light cardio and/or stretching. Got it? Great! Let’s drop it like a squat.
