Rock Your Next Event with ChiRunning’s Strength Training Triad. It’s widely accepted that you can improve your running performance with strength training. We agree you need strength training, but it’s not just physical strength that we’re talking about. If physical strength training is all your focusing on, you’re not getting the most out of your training time.
In Chi Running, one of our basic goals is injury prevention. You can basically divide almost all running injuries (outside of accidents) to one of two categories: overuse and impact. I've never taken the time to study which one creates more injuries, but I'd be curious to find out. Today I'm talking about impact.
