Beachbody Programs For Every Phase of Running
Which Beachbody programs are best for runners?
Well, the answer is it depends….
It depends on what kind of runner you are, what your goals are and where you are in your training cycle! I know that right now there are no races happening but you may be training for a virtual race like I am (I’m doing a virtual trail marathon in November!) or you may just want to save this email for future reference!
You can watch my video on YouTube here or below for a full explanation of the best Beachbody programs for runners!
Each of the Beachbody programs below that have a link will take you to a blog post I wrote about the program as well as detailed recommendations for combining with running. Discover which Beachbody programs that work with running are best.
Base Building Runner
When a runner is in base building mode – just starting to train by adding mileage and potentially starting with some shorter speed sessions or fartlek work, this is a great time to add a strength training program, with or without modification! This is me right now. I’m running about 25-30 miles a week and doing #MBF.
For this phase, my favorite programs are:
Half Marathon & Full Marathon Training
For a runner who is training for a half or full marathon and is starting to get into serious training, including tempo runs and/or more intense speed workouts. I recommend less leg strengthening. If the runner can’t get out to run 4-5 days a week, then I recommend doing at least 1-2 Beachbody cardio workouts per week to help build endurance. I also recommend weekly (or more) mobility, stretching or foam rolling videos and one FULL day of rest per week.
For this phase of training, my favorite programs are:
Off Season Runner
These are my favorite programs for the off season runner who wants to build strength in their legs and core in particular. These programs can completely transform your body and turn you into a badass beast so you can dominate your training when the time comes! You can also run during these, but if you want to complete them as is, most people probably can manage 3 runs/week. Of course that is up to you and your fitness level!
