Finish Strong: Resistance Training for Endurance Athletes (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Whether training for a 5K or ultramarathon, all endurance athletes can benefit from some form of resistance training. This training manual, written by two leading US fitness authorities, will outline how endurance athletes can benefit from incorporating resistance training into their weekly schedule.

Finish Strong will introduce the principles of resistance training to all forms of endurance athletes, such as runners, cyclists, swimmers and triathletes, in a way that will optimize their training and allow them to compete at a higher level. Most athletes realize that strength training is a vital part of a comprehensive training programme, but many are unsure of where to start or how to integrate lifting weights into their already packed training schedule. This book will not only give them a starting point, but also a blueprint for how to structure training plans to maximize results and minimize injuries.

The book will break down the importance of resistance training and strength development, and give practical advice and training tips. Runners, swimmers, cyclists and triathletes now number in the millions, but the resources available to teach them how to integrate weight training into their programmes are surprisingly limited. Finish Strong will fill that void.
