Harvey Lawton is a strength and conditioning coach specialising in training for endurance athletes and is the founder of The Movement Blueprint, an established online training platform offering solutions to improve your performance from every angle.
Harvey has put together a series of four workouts, which we will be sharing over the next four weeks. The workouts are for runners looking to get back into the gym and find a bit of direction with their training once gym doors fully open. These sessions have been designed to build a strong base to your running, helping to bulletproof your body against injury, and have you running stronger than ever.
Each week, Harvey will be progressing the session slightly, hoping that you will progress too. He has also made videos to correspond with each exercise, so if you’re unsure, give the videos a watch.
In this first session we will target simple but effective core stability and single limb strength movements. These will build the foundation of the four-week series, serving as a re-introduction to strength training. Throughout the workout, maintain control and ensure movement patterns are solid before adding load.
