Our Strength Workshops are predominately designed for endurance athletes as they are focused on the key muscle groups and joint movements used in cycling and running. However, because their focus is on building muscular balance and inherent strength, in reality, they are beneficial to everyone as they will build strength in the areas you need it. So even if you run or cycle on a limited basis, these sessions will help you stay injury free, which is a real risk for inexperienced runners in particular.
Each session will require slightly different equipment but generally speaking, the following should get you through all our sessions.
– 2 sets of dumbbells (1 lighter pair for upper body work that you can lift above your head & 1 heavier pair for building leg strength)
– a miniband (we would recommend buying two or three bands of varying strengths so you can progress the exercises)
– a resistance band (we would recommend buying two or three bands of varying strengths so you can progress the exercises)
– a stool, bench or chair that is nice and steady
