Putting Together My Strength Routine

I was discharged from physical therapy a few weeks ago, but I still need to do some of my physical therapy exercises to maintain my core strength and address the muscle imbalances that caused me so much trouble in the first place. I also want to add back upper body back moves that I had to drop to be able to fit in all of my physical therapy exercises. Here is the new strength routine for runners that I came up with.

Warm-Up

Planks


Supersets (3 sets of 12-15 reps, grouped as indicated)


How do you put together your strength routine?

How often do you switch it up?

    ahhhh I should switch it up more perhaps? although I do shift from bands machines and free weights pretty frequently.

    I'm just getting into the routine of doing strength training at home and kind of rotate between 2 or 3 basic workouts. Baby steps for me.

    Switching up your routine is key to eliminate boredom and to keep seeing the results you want. As a personal trainer, I recommend my clients switch it up at least every 4-6 weeks. This may include focusing on higher reps/low weight or fewer reps/higher weight. Adding plyometrics, intervals, endurance training, focus on eccentric contractions,,,,,etc… It is great to "shock the body" and keep it guessing so it will have to adapt – thus keeping the results coming!
