hey guys i am doing 5 3 1 for powerlifting… I have been lazy and cut the conditioning part of the program so far because a fear of losing strength / getting small but its time to do things right and get strong AND in shape. I dont have a prowler, or a good hill to sprint, ( nothing here only jagged cliffs ).
So my question is " my conditioning will be mostly plain old jogging, how long should i try to jog for? How much is to much and how much is not enough, my goal is not to lose weight, just to get in shape and be as strong as possible. Thanks [/quote]
I walk with a wheelbarrow with weights in it. It got me in shape faster than anything I did before. I typically go 8-12 trips of 60 yards (30-turn around-30 back) and try to get them in in under 10 minutes, and with around 200-300 pounds in the wheelbarrow. Sometimes I’ll just start at around 240 and add 20-30 pounds per trip for 4-6 trips. I think I got up to 375 so far.
Also will sometimes walk 30 forward and 30 backward. Backward wheelbarrow is great for the upper back.
I also got a plastic storage container and put a 2 x 4 wood liner inside, attached a rope, and put plates in that and dragged it on grass.
