As I mentioned a few weeks ago, we are now doing only 1 Strength and Conditioning session a month to guide you through the program and appropriate technique for you to then complete the program in your own time.
Remember, we suggest you complete the monthly program, twice a week or three times a fortnight to really reap the benefits, to improve your running, and to help you stay injury free!
When: Saturday 11th April
Where: Captain Burke Park, Story Bridge Kangaroo Point
Cost: Great value only $2 for members, $4 non-members.
What: 1.5 hours of running and weights ............if you are keen for a long run, meet us there and see who is keen to join you.
S&C Program Recap:
Come along and learn how to perform each exercise correctly, plus get a great running workout that will not only improve your overall fitness and strength but will improve your running as well.
Weight will be used for these sessions, so, can you please bring your own set of dumbbells. If you are unsure of the amount of weight to bring here is a simple test:
You will want 40% of your max single rep bicep curl. To do this do a standing bicep curl using a weight heavy enough to only perform 1 rep. You will want 40% of this weight. Eg: I lift 30kg so I will be using a set of 12kg weights. Renae lifts 12kg, so she will be using a set of 4kg weights. If you are still unsure, use what you use during pump.classes. You can also use elastic therabands if you have them. You only need one set of weights for all exercises (e.g. 2 x ?kg dumbbells). As you get stronger, you will need to increase your weights, so if possible buy a set or dumbbells where you can add weights!
We welcome members and non-members, runners and walkers or those recovering from running injuries. We are happy to adapt exercises where required.
Michael K inspired us in February by his story of how running has changed his life. In March, Michelle inspired us to always make time for ourselves and the positive impact then can have on the rest of your life.
Both of them have inspired us and received a complimentary 1 hour remedial massage!
