Runchatlive Ep.44 ‘Strength Training For Runners’ with Dr. Claire Minshull

by | Jun 1, 2020 | Podcast Episodes

Strength training for runners is a huge topic lately, but frequently filled with myth and misconception. In Runchatlive Ep.44 we have the GREAT pleasure of bringing you Dr. Claire Minshull, a Rehabilitation & Conditioning Specialist who has worked in sports medicine and health for 20+ years as a Senior Lecturer, Researcher, Consultant and Practitioner, with over 30 peer-reviewed articles published.

In this episode, Claire discusses topics such as: • Does strength / resistance training make you big, inflexible or slow? • What sort of reps, sets & weights should runners be using? • Is just running enough to make you a stronger runner? • How can we use strength to ensure that the same injury does not return?

Whether you’re a therapist or runner, coach or personal trainer, this episode will provide you with some awesome tips on how to make strength training work.

RCL International Running Conference 2020

It gives us great pleasure to announce that Dr. Claire Minshull will be a speaker at this year’s RCL International Running Conference on October 29th & 30th in Brighton, UK. And yes, if COVID-19 means we can’t meet up face-to-face there will be a VIRTUAL conference!

Full details are available on the Eventbrite page: We are thrilled to say the least and sure that the variety of presentations and two 90 minute Q&A sessions with all TEN speakers on stage will be of HUGE value to therapists, running coaches, runners and personal trainers.

There are ticket options for all, early bird discounts, virtual tickets… just get over ther NOW and have a look! And, as mentioned above, if COVID-19 means that a face-to-face event is not possible, there will be a VIRTUAL conference with all ten speakers, question time sessions, for which all tickets purchased will be valid.

Interested in starting YOUR OWN Podcast?

Here’s two things we wish someone had told us when we started:


    Choosing a suitable host company to upload, store & distribute your podcast material will always depend on your individual circumstances & needs. That said, if you’re looking for a company to help your podcast grow, we recommend Podbean. Set up is super easy, as is transferring from a different host. Click HERE for details.
    After trying many ways to do both solo recordings and with guests, we wholeheartedly recommend you try Be.Live online software. It’s the best value, simple to use (for you AND your guest), and has some great tools to brand it as you want. Testing the software is FREE (no credit card recquired). Click HERE for full details.
