During the winter months, and whilst my son is having his swimming lesson, I intend to use the gym. I rarely get injured and so I'm not really looking for injury prevention exercises but would like to advice on what sessions I can do in the gym which will help me to become a better, stronger, and faster runner.
The gym doesn't have a huge amount of equipment. It has some weights, a leg curl machine, rowing machine and some other upper body equipment.
I would really appreciate some advice on what exercises I should be doing.
Plyometric jump squats - but you don't exactly need a gym for those.
Forget machines and don't go near any exercise that attempts to 'isolate'. Heavy ass compounds re the way to less fat, more muscle and strength/power.
Cheers. Thanks for your replies.
