Runners' Focused Strengthening Workout

  • Countryside Parkway Pool Algonkian Parkway Sterling, VA (map)

Runner's need to include strengthening exercises in their fitness routine, to promote better running form and to prevent injury! This workout is based on Dr. Jordan Metzle's (an ultra distance athlete and physician) "Iron Strength" workout routine. In total, it runs approximately 45 min-1 hr with warm up and cool down. Visit http://drjordanmetzl.com/ironstrength-workout/ for more information.  

We will meet at the Country Side Nature Preserve in Sterling on Monday at 7:30 pm.

You will need the following for this workout:

1. A yoga mat

2. A few sets of light dumbbells (5s, 8s, 10s- can be lighter or heavier based on personal ability level) 

3. a small towel

Please bring a water bottle- for this workout in the heat I will provide water/gatorade as it is quite hot outside. I also recommend you bring bug spray.
