As a runner, should your strength training workouts be hard? @mattfitwriter takes a look at a new study:

If strength training improves running performance by increasing strength and power, you would think that circuit training—considering that it failed to increase strength and power—also failed to improve running performance in this study. In fact, circuit training improved more running parameters than the more intense strength-training protocols. Specifically, members of the circuit training group saw gains in maximum running speed, speed at the ventilatory threshold (or the pace at which one starts to breathe heavily), and VO2max. Runners on the other three strength-training programs also increased their maximum running speed and speed at the ventilatory threshold but experienced no improvement in VO2max. Running economy did not improve on any of the strength-training programs.
