A bit of information put together by RIAK about these strength sessions:
The goal with these sessions is to demonstrate why strength training is so important to endurance athletes and how athletes can do extremely high quality training without the need for expensive kit. In the first session we’ll start with a little intro into what athletes can use around the house to create loading and progress exercises. We’ll then get cracking with a great home workout just using a rucksack filled with books or similarly weighted items, which will be our main tool for the session. In the following two sessions we’ll continue to use minimal kit and build on the foundations from the first session. For the second two sessions, if athletes have a miniband that would help immensely, but as we’ll show them in the first session, they can always use an old bike innertube instead!
Our sessions are challenging but not high intensity and suitable for all levels as we always provide alternatives to the more challenging exercises. The emphasis is always on coaching and performing exercises with correct form. Our sessions are interactive, so please do bring your questions with you! If you have things you want to ask during the session, we really encourage people to either unmute themselves and ask away or leave questions in the chat box and we’ll pick them up as we go. We are here to coach, so please use us!
