Not all training programs are created equal, but some of the best include strength training for runners, specifically to help prevent injuries and improve personal bests with weight training. And while it’s true that running is really the best way to get better at running, you can vastly improve your speed, agility, and power as a runner by incorporating some basic weight training into your workout.

Good news! Making cardio and strength training part of your life will not only trim your body, but also boost your brain power, productivity, smarts and energy levels. Research has shown that people who perform cardio regularly had an increase in the size of their hippocampus, the part of the brain that controls learning, concentration and memory.

Research also found that moderate to high intensity strength training helps the brain process information quicker.
