Our Training Philosophy

Our running coach utilizes the foundational principles of Lydiard’s periodized training system, designed to build stamina, strength, and speed for peak performance during the racing phase. Periodization ensures you reach your optimal performance at the right time. The training cycle begins with a long aerobic phase, which includes running at varying paces to build endurance, stamina, and a solid base for race-day performance. The training is tailored to your current fitness level, with adjustments made based on your response to training stimuli to maximize fitness gains.

Training Building Blocks:

    • Training follows a structured progression from general conditioning, emphasizing low intensity and high volume, to higher intensity and lower volume specific to event skills.
    • Timing is crucial for competition success; directing adaptations toward your goal helps you peak at the right time.
    • Each mesocycle typically lasts four to six weeks and includes progressive loading for three to five weeks, followed by a lighter, active recovery week.
    • Adjusting training plans based on how your body responds ensures you maximize progress and stay on track with your goals.

Goal Evaluation and Assessment

Let’s begin by learning more about you. We’ll use an online form to:

    • Evaluate your current fitness level.
    • Discuss and establish your fitness goals.
    • Understand your running journey and review past injuries.
    • Review key areas like nutrition, hydration, gear, and shoes.
    • Discuss your training availability and energy levels.
    • Examine how strength and cross-training can enhance your running.
    • Identify ways to make your training enjoyable.

FUNCTIONAL STRENGTH TRAINING OVERVIEW

What is Functional Lifting?

Functional lifting is a dynamic approach to strength training that mirrors real-life movements, enhancing overall functional strength, range of movement, coordination, and stability. Unlike conventional weightlifting, which often isolates muscle groups, functional lifting simultaneously engages multiple muscles through exercises like squats, deadlifts, and kettlebell swings. This approach enhances everyday tasks and sports performance by targeting movements such as pushing, pulling, and lifting.

The importance of Recovery, Mobility & Flexibility

Integrate a mobility and flexibility routine, such as yoga, and low-intensity activities, such as walking, cycling, or swimming, into your active recovery days. This combination supports maintaining a full range of motion, preventing injuries, and optimizing recovery from intense workouts, such as heavy lifting and sprints.

Does Functional Lifting build muscle?

Yes. Functional lifting can lead to muscle hypertrophy with sufficient intensity and volume. This means lifting challenging weights (intensity) and doing enough sets and reps (volume) to stimulate muscle growth effectively. Hypertrophy gains typically involve lifting weights at around 75-85% of your one-rep maximum for 6-12 reps per set across multiple sets.

What equipment do I need?

For loading, you can use any weight-bearing equipment, such as barbells, plates, dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, sandbags, or a combination of these options. You will also need a bench or box (or a sturdy chair), a pull-up bar, and resistance bands. If you need help scaling an exercise to work with your equipment, we can help, so get in touch!
