“I picked Rob to be on the Board of Advisors for Schwarzenegger.com because he’s one of the smartest and best in the business. He’s exactly the kind of person I was looking for when I started my site – driven, intelligent, and, yes, badass.”

Running programs never include enough strength training. Best case scenario they’ll says, “Be sure to lift weights a few times per week,” or they’ll include a day or two of X-training (which isn’t exactly a detailed prescription.) They leave far too many questions unanswered:

  • Should I lift weights before or after I run?
  • Maybe I should lift on my off-day?
  • How much leg training should I do?
  • Should I only lift upper body since my legs are always, you know, running?
  • Are there specific lifts that might help my training?
  • What about lifting during my taper?
  • How much volume is really reasonable?

RunStrong training programs have set out to answer all of these questions with comprehensive and detailed plans. They combine top-notch running programming with equally descriptive strength training programming. All of your training variables are laid out in a thoughtful and easy-to-follow routine. There are multiple programs to choose from, based on your goal, but memberships give you access to the entire catalogue, so you can try them all.

And if you’re new to running, check out the walk-to-jog program which combines a progressive walking / jogging routine with some living room strength workouts you can do at-home. No matter what your experience, there’s a program to fit the bill. In fact, the RunStrong Marathon program was originally designed for my wife to train for and run the NYC marathon while gaining .4 lb of lean mass.

“I was 100% skeptical about this online program especially since I knew it all (or at least I thought I did.) I figured that I had been lifting on/off for 25+ years so what could some trainer do for me?

I could not have been more wrong.”
