Watch Video of Galen Rupp Training with Coach Alberto Salzar
Flotrack has a new video with Coach Alberto Salazar and Galen Rupp performing general strength exercises and other strength training movements including olympic lifting.
Galen Rupp’s running form is maintained under stress because of the strength training and focus on the total athlete.
To survive Alberto Salzar’s speed training: general strength and many other bio-motor abilities must be part of the training system. Distance runners need to train speed and power elements with dynamic functional strength. Using explosive lifting exercises, training in single support and developing the total athlete should be part of the focus in the training plan.
