Strength Training for Able Bodies and Amputees Alike

Being an endurance athlete encompasses a lot of things. One that usually doesn't get touched is building a base with strength training.

It is very important to continue strength training during your season to help decrease your chance of injury. During the season I lighten up on the weights I lift and use more body weight exercises...in case you were wondering. Hope you enjoy it!
Until next time,
Jamie
