    What’s the best practice for strength training tapering for a marathon? I’ve been lifting twice a week (one day pretty heavy) and have been doing all the usual “runner strength” stuff: RDLs, lunges, squats, clamshells, planks, lots of single leg stuff, etc etc. Just wondering when should I lay off the heavy weights and just stuff to body weight strength? Also, should I do any S/T the week of the marathon? Thanks for your thoughts!

    Our premium strength plans are designed to align with our endurance plans. All you have to do is follow it through to the end. Most of them have you doing RS7.1 and RS 2.3 two weeks before the race and RS6 and RS1.2 in race week.
