    One thought on “Quick Strength for Runners: 8 Weeks to a Better Runner's Body”

    1. Making my way through this slowly but surely. (It's taking me longer than 8 weeks!)I think the moves are easy to understand, don't require much equipment, and I can tell they are helping me. Workouts are quick to do and feel simple at the time but you can tell the next day that you worked some muscles least I can tell!

    2. Excellent book for a runner or someone just starting with strength training. The workouts last less than 30 minutes and the book is structured so that you do two per week. It's a good introduction that can be used to as a bridge to more intensive strength programs. My only qualm with the program is that there are a lot of crunch variations (crunches, side crunches, etc.) and I've read conflicting research on how effective those are for building strength. I also find all the crunches a bit repeti [...]

    3. For once, the hype on the cover is actually true— readers can definitely become faster runners with fewer injuries in about an hour a week. What’s better, many of the exercises look pretty badass to try. The book is ideally structured for those with little time to kill and a major interest in fast improvement. There is no need to go to a gym, so readers can be in the comfort of their own homes (or, preferably, the more luxuriant homes of wealthy friends). The introductory section lays out th [...]

    4. While on the surface this book appears to be for the beginning runner/athlete, the exercises are easily ramped up for the more advanced runner/athlete. I appreciated the clear photographs and instructions and the easy-to-follow plans that only take 20-30 minutes each with minimal if any equipment (exercise ball, hand weights, medicine ball -- but most exercises can be done without those). I loved being able to take this book with me along with an exercise mat to my kids' tennis or piano lessons [...]

    5. Perfect book for runners with limited time to add strength training and injury prevention into their weekly routine. The author takes a practical approach and obviously understands that life often gets in the way of a runner's best intentions. The author provides easy to understand workouts that can be done quickly and provide max benefit in limited time. Bottom line? The author obviously knows the difficulty of trying to balance work, family, running, and strength/injury prevention. This book g [...]

    6. I am writing this review before I actually have spent the 8 weeks doing the training, but I think the plan itself seems reasonable and doable. I have done one week of the exercises and they were quick and to the point. There wasn't a lot of fancy equipment required and I could do it at home in about 15 minutes. I think the book is also clear and well-written. It includes a good balance of the "why" with the "what" included some of the kinesiology, which is interesting.

    7. I bought it as an ebook for ipad - formatting is a bit wonky for the exercises (3 pages for 1 exercise1 is the title of the exercise, etc.). Otherwise, seems like good philosophy behind the exercises and I love that they explain what muscle groups are worked and why. The routines don't require much (or in some cases, any) equipment (maybe specifying weight sizes for beginners would have been handy) and are portable enough. I'll try out the 8 week program after November.

    8. Excellent book. Very concise, easy to follow and with great exercise explanations. It just needs a little update. Some exercises are really outdated (supermans) , some are missing (planks, any kind of calf strengthening), but overall, it's great!

    9. Did the workouts as planned and overall feeling a lot stronger in core as well as issues with my Hip Flexor are goneI do feel stronger and will implement these workouts in my 16 week marathon plan.Fantastic book,

    10. Clear and conciseA clear, easy to follow strength plan. He explains the goal of the exercise as well as how to perform the exercise. Nice variety to the training plan. Easy to add to a run or bike ride.

    11. Good packaging of what I already knewMost of us have done all of these before. The book provides an effective way to package and structure a series of routines.
