Strength Training for Runners at Home. How to Get Results!

exercises and drills female runners glutes lifting stablility training smarts Jul 12, 2023

As a runner can be hard to fit in strength training, but what if it didn't have to be this way?

I get it, you just want to run and could probably do without the strength training bit. I used to be the same way.

The way I see it there are 3 main reasons for that:

  1.  You just want to run, duh! Strength training is just one more thing to do that takes away from time running.
  2. You haven’t yet felt the effects of consistent, purposeful strength training on your running performance.
  3.  The strength training you are doing is boooorrrring. 

the thing is Strength training for female runners doesn't have to be that way, let me explain.

The thing is, runners need to strength train!

Strength = Stability          Strength = Efficiency

Strength = Power            Strength = Resilience

AND strength training can actually be fun and empowering AF!

Let’s just take the glutes for example….

These are some of the most common glute-focused exercises I see given to runners…




First of all:


It’s missing the mark in facilitating a major component of functional glue strength - being able to eccentrically load those glutes (aka. create length). On the other hand, here’s a sneak peek of some of the exercises in my Glute Accelerator Crash Course (we’ll work up to these over the 7 days) for comparison.

Way more fun right?... and a whole lot more effective if you ask me. Using my FAST Formula, I’ll show you how to make glute training fun and effective in a way that you’ll want to keep doing it AND truly feel your efforts pay off with a stronger, more powerful stride.




  • Fun – I know most runners just want to run and could do without the strength training bit, but I believe strength training can be fun AF if you truly train like an athlete. I’ll show you how.
  • Activate – Learn how to truly activate your glutes so that you can use them the way you need them with running. (hint. it’s not using clamshells or booty bands)
  • Strengthen –Lay the foundations for true, functional strength in your glutes so that you can feel strong and more powerful in your stride while eliminating some of the most common aches and pains.
  • Target – Target one specific movement pattern that has the potential to make a major difference in your running. Instead of doing all the things, let’s focus on doing ONE thing really well and then you can build from there.

… AND the best part it’s only 15 minutes per day!
