Let’s face it : since I discover training with weights, I never find anything better than Jim’s program (and templates). I’m starting cycle 8 next week and still didn’t had to reset to 90 % again yet, making PR’s and stuff. I felle wicked strong. Used 4 days a week, basic prog. first, then introduced some extra sets with ladder down, fist set last and even jokers by time to time, etc.
But here it his : now I want to to train for a super spartan (like 8 miles or 12+ km obstacle race). I’m already doing some sprint conditioning on the middle of the week by playing ultimate frisbee. I tough about doing some jump rope during lunch time, with some core and abs work, and neural charge (some plyo push-up, jumps etc.) I also tough about going for a long slow run on sunday, cause I have to go for the distance to make my knees and other articulations ready for a long run. Abviously, I DON’T want to quit weight training, and I DON’T want to quit 5-3-1, has it was a revelation to me.
So what would you guys recommand ? Bodyweight template ? basic only ? drop to 3 days a week template ? or even 2 ? had the clean movement (you know, it’s kinda cross fit used… - and not a bad thing for football too) in lower body training ? Crossfit template ? What exercices would you use then ? So much options… I’ll probably use heavy bag as conditionning during those, cause I can’t train outside and inside at the same time (home gym, and it’s canadian winter here). ok, thanks for your comments !!
