In my junior year of college, I learned how to lift with free weights. I did light weights, and built up sets that would take me 30 minutes. I did pull ups, push ups and bent leg sit ups.
I had become tired of loosing form at end of races, and getting outkicked. So, I spoke to a couple of trainers, and they suggested a series of weights and exercises. It did not change overnight, but, in my senior year of college, after hundreds of races, I won my first race.
