I dont do my weight training much, but our plan is 2 sets, 12 reps for any exercise biceps, triceps, chest, shoulders, quads (id look them up online or check out the machines at your gym), then squats for hammies, lunges for gluts (20 each, more as you get stronger) 25 each bicycle situps and pushup, and 15 min jump rope for shins. If you want me to give you the full plan I can post it too,, but these are the basics
I like the weight training because a stronger upper body not only looks good but the added strength contributes to better form and I seem to get in the zone much easier. Particularly core stuff like abs, obliques, and lower back.

Does anyone have any training regiment ideas? I'm relatively new to weight training on top of doing running. I would love any pointers or suggestions anyone has.
Weight training... I don't do it, for two reasons: A) I don't like weight lifting, and B) There is absolutely no proof that weight training has any added benefit to endurance athletics, and since I have limited time I devote it to running.
