“Putting Evidence Back Into
Running Injury and Performance”

Strength Training for Runners: What Reps and Sets?

by | Oct 21, 2018 | Podcasts On Performance

We’re truly ecstatic to see more people joining us for these Facebook broadcasts! In response we start having LIVE GUESTS as of Episode 8

In today’s episode, we consider the question of how many repetitions (lifts per exercise) and sets (repeats of exercise) we should be doing as part of strength training. Do reps and sets vary depending on what we are trying to achieve, for rehab, reducing risk of injury or as a way of improving performance?

The evidence (as if so often the case in the world of running injury & performance) may surprise you and change what you currently practice…

Help us?
You can help is in our mission to spread evidence based intervention to runners, coaches & therapists by simply sharing our episodes across social media, especially on Apple Podcasts/iTunes as that really makes a difference. Thanks in advance and enjoy!


If you cannot find our audio podcast on your favourite player (Overcast, Pocketcast, Stitcher, etc.) do please let us know and we’ll make sure it is added!

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.
