Below are your core training workouts. They are broken into three stages and you should complete them in order. I’ve provided my video of each exercise in each routine. Watch the first, then I’ve included the exercise list along with the sets/reps/weight for each routine. I’ve also provided follow along workouts (3 for each stage) so you can workout with me and progress optimally across each stage.

Coach Greg's Instructions

Coach’s Notes: Start with Stage 1 and do this routine 2-3 times per week for 4-8 weeks. Then, advance to Stage 2. Begin by doing this routine after your runs/workouts so you stack the stress on one day and then the following day offers more recovery.
Follow Along Workouts for Stage 1
