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.

Workout 1

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.
