OLYMPIC STANDARDS

OLYMPIC LIFTING VARIATIONS ARE NOW A STAPLE TRAINING AID ACROSS A VARIETY OF SPORTS. PERSONAL TRAINER JOE PEAT EXPLAINS HOW RUNNERS CAN BENEFIT FROM RAISING THE BAR

I encourage all of my clients who are training for performance in any sport to use Olympic lifting movements because of their potential for power development; explosive runners will be able to run faster race times. This is why it’s kept in all of my runner’s programmes – from sprint to distance athletes.

The traditional lifts – snatch and clean and jerk – are very skilled-based, so if I don’t have time to coach the full lifts I will use variations to get the athlete more powerful in a short training block.

Complete the exercises as a circuit, with 10 seconds rest between each move. Complete three to four sets of the circuit, increasing the weight slightly with each set, and rest two to three minutes between sets. Joe Peat runs training camps on various weekends in the City of London. For more information, head to joepeat.com and follow Joe on Instagram: @joepeat1

About Men's Running

Runners run – it’s what we do. And that’s ne – until we can’t. e older we get, the more chance of breaking down through injury. I admit, even the editorial team at Men’s Running has been slightly remiss in doing the stretching, strengthening and core work necessary to build an injury- resistant body. But the bene ts of doing these exercises are clear: fewer injuries, better recovery and ultimately faster running. is is why we’ve gathered together the best exercise routines we can nd. It would be slightly churlish to say that these can ‘bullet-proof ’ your body. But we know that if you add in just one of these routines in to your weekly training programmes, the results will be almost instantaneous. Pick the sessions that t for you: if you have weak knees, then choose one to strengthen that. Got a weak core? We’ve got that covered too. We hope you’ll use this as an invaluable training aid – and that you have plenty of miles of pain-free running.
