Run Strong

What is the Run Strong Programme?

Throwing enough hours at a problem can often lead to success, but why would anyone work harder when they could work smarter for better results? Our Run Strong Programme was specifically created to increase mobility, endurance, and strength in each 60 minute session.

Is this Programme Only Strength Training?

At Subiaco Physiotherapy, we believe in a more wholesome approach. There has been a huge amount of research over the last decade which shows that strength training can improve running mechanics, reduce injury rate and increase efficiency and speeds in endurance runners, so our programme really targets this. In addition to this, we also have a focus on mobility, running posture and muscle health to ensure overall performance gains are being achieved. You’ll be provided with expert guidance at every step of the way towards your goals. Wherever you are on your journey, whether you’re a beginner or an athlete, we’re certain you’ll finish each session with new insights and a sense of accomplishment.

What Happens During a Run Strong Session?

Your safety is our priority! Firstly, your physiotherapist will need to assess which areas require attention in order to minimise any risk of injury during the session.

Typically, the primary focus will be on single leg control, strength and power because we spend nearly all of our time running on either one leg or the other. Specific exercises based on your competencies can then be introduced to your training plan and you will be shown these techniques during your sessions. Over time, these exercises will increase in difficulty to ensure your goals are being achieved and your risk of injury is minimised.

Alongside the lower limb strength work we will target mobility and posture, both of which are important components of running performance. Similarly, you will be taught specific exercises which will increase in difficulty over time to ensure you are advancing toward your goals. These exercises will be taught and practised using feedback from your physiotherapist and feedback provided by you to the physio.

What if I Have an Injury?
