Circuit Training for Runners
Circuit training is nothing new. These highly efficient training routines are performed thousands of times per day at gyms all around the world. There is a good reason for the popularity of circuit training. It allows you to fit a number of different types of workouts into one training session. The efficiency of circuit training makes it an ideal workout for those days that you are pressed for time. Circuit training is a very popular method of training for general fitness, but it hasn't really caught on among the running community.
Does that mean circuit training isn't a valuable training routine for runners? Not at all! Circuit training is a great way to fit several different types of training into one workout. Not only does it save time, but it adds variety, improves your lactate turn point and is a great way to fit strength training into your program. A typical circuit training workout for runners will include exercises that improve your running strength, foot speed, core strength, lactate turn point, vVO2 max, running economy and endurance, all in one highly efficient workout.
Here are some circuit training workouts that you can do at any time of the year to save time, add variety and improve your running performance and fitness level.
