Strong-15 not just for powerlifters

As usual, I love getting these............


I have been running the strong 15 for my lifting while I prepare for my 50 miler I'm running at the end of june. I just finished the 85% wave and just wanted to tell you that I have never felt strong or faster on my uphill climbs during my runs. Because of my focus is endurance I took a very conservative training max and decided to try a 2 day split for my lifting, rotating my press, squat, and deadlift. I can't tell you how smart that was for my recovery. After my 54321 over warmup I focus my back off sets with pause squats and deficit deads ( I use the 35's instead of 45's as it makes the ROM about an 1-1.5 more). This has been huge in correcting the tightness I've developed from years of running. All this to say thank you. I know this program was designed for guys looking to be big, strong and jacked, but your program was the best thing I could have done for my running. Thanks -- Greg
