STRENGTH TRAINING OR PLYOMETRICS TO IMPROVE YOUR RUNNING ECONOMY?

It’s the off-season!  Does your training look exactly the same as how it does during your competitive months?  If your goal is to be as fast as possible, it shouldn’t!  One of the best training tools that runners should use during the off-season (that is a little more risky/costly to use during your competitive season) is strength training.
I am not going to waste your time preaching about how strength work is better than no strength work.  It think all runners know that whether you are doing high rep low weight, low rep high weight, or explosive/plyometric/jump training, adding some sort of strength training will make you run faster.
