AUTHOR AND ST.MARY'S UNIVERSITY LECTURER - RICHARD BLAGROVE

The SFE Network had the opportunity to visit the Endurance Performance and Coaching Centre, at St. Mary's University (London, UK), the training 'hub' for a host of world-class athletes such as recently crowned double Olympic gold medalist Mo Farah. We sat down with Director of Strength & Conditioning, Richard Blagrove, to discuss common misconceptions surrounding strength training and endurance athletes, the value of movement screening and why you need to search for the best advice. You can also read our review of Richard's book 'Strength Training for Endurance Running' here. 

The EPCC philosophy:

"To provide an endurance performance environment that supports, challenges and develops elite runners, inspires beginners, fosters and tests talent and promotes excellence in the coaches who work with them."
