Weights & Strength Training | How to Win Like Mo

A lot of you are asking me for some advice on weight training. In this video, I show you a few simple exercises I do to help with conditioning and strength. It’s not a lot. I keep it down to three reps and just three or four sets per gym session, but it’s definitely vital to my preparation. Keep the comments coming, thanks for watching and I hope you all enjoy! All footage filmed at St. Mary’s University, London.

Great insight Mo. Thanks for sharing champion

travz21 says:

Just imagine how good these elite athletes would be if they squatted correctly. Mo would be much stronger if he hit depth. More strength at the same body weight simply translates to faster times.

JapGeordie says:

Mo, you just half-squatted. Can I ask why you didn’t get your ‘ass to the grass’? I’m just asking because I don’t want to damage my knees, yet I was taught that a ‘proper squat’ means a deep squat. Can you clarify?

Saipraneeth Mukku says:

Seriously such a great athlete

Aussie Twins Fan says:

Mo is so lean and muscular! I wonder what his body fat percent is?!!!

Matthew Kossolapov says:

He may be an amazing runner, but in a gym, he is a quarter squatting amateur.

Ty Pie Athletics says:

No you locked your legs durning the squat. Do not do that you can get knee injuries.

Eric Hui says:

Hey i’m glad to see you on Youtube! This is exciting! It’d be cool to know if you have any periodization to your strength training and how you structure your running program at least in general.

blueC says:

This definitely isn’t the full story, of course. His routine in-season likely involves a lot of explosive, powerful, light-weight exercises with much more complexity than half-assed squats and basic dumbbell exercises. This tiny routine is basically housecleaning/maintenance, I would imagine.

Sachin Kumar says:

How many days a week long distance runners should do weightlifting??
