During my preseason (which usually lasts about eight weeks) My coach has me running 5 miles a day, along with a morning lift, which if you ask me is stupid as hell(the 5 miles a day part, i love lifting, which is why im so heavy, im pretty lean for a 260 pound guy, can see my lower abs, but im still a heavy bastard?), but He did not ask, and is not open for suggestions.
So , in the offseason, I typically dont run very much because It destroys my knees and ankles,( i make up for it by lifting and doing manual labor) But this offseason I will not get the cardio from being active for 8 hours a day plus lifting. And im not running 5 miles a day. My weight usually stays between 260-70. I am trying to keep my cardio up so i can lose some mass and cut down about 10-20 lbs, ive already changed my diet around, now i need some ides for cardio that would carry over to wrestling.
I mean im planning on running around 2 miles a day, post lifting to keep my ankles and knees used to it, and im planning on buying a bike and possibly riding it for an hour a day( just because i enjoy biking and being outside) I should probably add in a sprint day once or twice a week, and on the weekends i usually go on a nature trail and hike with my dogs for about 8 miles. How does this look for cardio, and do any of you have suggestions on which i could improve my offseason plan? my imagination with cardio is kind of limited lol.
