Product description


"A smart strength-training plan in which runners can learn how to strength their core and key running muscles."  -- Competitor magazine

"" ]when I'm [running] 30, 40, 50 miles a week, the last thing I want to do is squats on legs that already feel like overcooked spaghetti" ]Jeff Horowitz has a solution. He's been a running coach for more than a decade and is the author of Quick Strength for Runners."  -- Philadelphia Inquirer

"Running is a sport of imbalance. At no point are your feet hitting the ground at the same time. This imbalance creates an opportunity for injury. Our bodies have to be strong enough to handle the complex motion of running. If it's not, you won't be running too long" ] Trusting this program has me running stronger and faster and most importantly injury free."  -- Amplify Today

"The exercise program is ideal for runners whose sole goal is running performance. Runners don't need to lift huge weights or practice resistance training five days per week. What they do need to is to develop a modest degree of well-balanced strength."  -- BreakingMuscle.com

"We all know that strength training is important. I have always said that I should do more strength training, but it wasn't until I started trying this book that I really realized how much it can help me. I started this book before I was back to running, and I believe without a shadow of a doubt that it has had a big impact on my running now. I am stronger, recover easier and have less soreness overall."  -- LovingontheRun.com
