If you’re anything like me, strength training feels super intimidating.
For starters, you have to know what exercises to do that enhance your other activities (like running, cycling, etc.). Then there’s the question of how to do these exercises correctly to avoid causing an injury.
Plus, for me anyway, there’s the fear of looking silly at the gym next to guys with loads of experience and the muscles that come with it.
That’s why for the longest time, I just avoided strength training all together… to my own detriment. Because as soon as I started doing just 10-15 minutes at home regularly, I saw almost immediate results both with my appearance and my running performance.
In today’s episode, Matt and I share their very different approaches to strength training (he likes the gym, I don’t), and the first steps you can take to get started.
