  1. Why Strengthening and Conditioning?

The sessions are aimed at helping regular participants to improve their core strength, increase their power fitness and improve their balance as well as  help improve plyometric flexibility in the legs. Improvements to the core, to power fitness, balance and plyometric fitness all contribute to making participants stronger runners and less susceptible to injury. S&C sessions are also  very good when recovery from injury, as you can exercise without running, or only running very gently. S&C sessions are more focussed than Pilates on running, cycling and swimming needs, and are very definitely NOT circuit training, which is more about purely improving endurance.

Pattern of each Session:

We start each session with a RAMP warm up and then follow a 13 station circuit of 3 stations concerned with improving Power Fitness, 3 stations to improve Core Fitness and 3 stations focussing on improving Balance. The final station is to help improve Plyometric leg fitness. Each station is repeated twice, to give a 26 station exercise session. All exercises last for a timed minute. Occasionally, the number of stations is reduced and the time on each station extended. We finish with a 10 minute static stretching session. The charge for each session is £1 per person.  We have a fully COVID-19 compliant version where all exercises are performed by each participant from one place, at a correct social distance. All equipment is sanitised after the session.
