Do any of you compete in both strength contests like powerlifting or strongman, and endurance sports like marathon running or triathlons?
I’ve done strongman and powerlifting and am now training for a half-marathon.I’m doing only a small amount of lifting, though, at present.
My feeling is that training for, say, both a lifting meet and a marathon at the same time will make your performance in both suffer greatly and may very well get you injured, but one can do both in the same year. Of course, if you want to be elite in either, you should stick to your sport.
Any experiences or thoughts?
