So I run. But I’m cutting back the long endurance and want to focus on 5k/8k/10k (over half and full marathons).
So I lift for running. I Dona fair amount of upper body work. Lots of single leg stuff, mobility, balance. I’ve always been under the impression that I should avoid heavy heavy lifting as a running focused person. I’d like to get into more lifting- like in a squat rack with weights that reach my body weight or more. I’m very, very intimidated. But I also am very, very intrigued.
Where do I start? What should I watch? Do I need to by Converse sneakers and ankle high socks? Should I invest in Gymshark? Do I take preworkout now? (I’m kidding and being snarky but I really do need advice.) Help me.
PS- I don’t want to gain weight nor bodybuild really. However, the fitness forum is usually more focused on other stuff.
