The Doctor’s Prescription

Jordan Metzl, in addition to being a doctor, is also a 34-time marathon runner and 14-time Ironman finisher. He’s also a member of our advisory board and an author of four books, his most recent being Dr. Jordan Metzl's Workout Prescription, published in December by Rodale, the parent company of Runner’s World.

The book is all about how to use short, high-intensity workouts to maximize your fitness.

But perhaps Dr. Metzl’s most famous high intensity session is his IronStrength workout, which is designed to enhance performance among athletes of all types and all ages. 

Shoes and gear editor Jeff Dengate is a former patient of Dr. Metzl’s, and he initially went to him for hip injury. Since then, Jeff has become a big believer in Metzl’s philosophy of preventing injury by building total body strength.

Jeff recently sat down with Dr. Metzl in his Manhattan office to talk about that philosophy, but also about his start as an athlete and a doctor. Plus, Dr. Metzl shares his top three strength-building moves for runners.

Checking Out IronStrength

We checked out @drjordanmetzl's Central Park workout this afternoon for a future episode. Cold but lots of energy!

Back in December, just as things were really starting to get cold, producer Brian Dalek went to Central Park to capture the energy—and the appeal—of an IronStrength workout.

Diehards and people looking for a good sweat session before the holidays were there, and many devotees of IronStrength were happy to explain how adding some strength training has helped them become a better athlete.

Since he lives just on the other side of the Holland Tunnel in New Jersey, Jeff Dengate decided he’d bundle up, too, for an outdoor workout he knew would have him sweating in no time.
