This workout provides weekly strength training to complement your cardio and endurance training as you prepare for your 5K. This workout is designed to target major muscle groups in your chest, back, shoulders, legs, and core to help build strength and muscular endurance. Exercises are performed in supersets with minimal rest between sets to ensure you maintain a high tempo and improve your muscular endurance.
The leg exercises of sumo deadlifts, one leg deadlifts, and glute bridges target your hamstrings and glutes, which ensures you have balanced leg training as a part of your weekly running and sprints which target more of your quads. This workout ends with a core superset of crunches and medicine ball twists. Feel free to mix up the core circuit every week if you have favorite abdominal exercises.
