I’d like to pose a question to this forum’s former distance runners. For convenience, I’d say anyone who’s ever run 40+ miles per week for a several month period or has ever gone for “an easy 6-mile run” is about the demographic I’m polling here.
Have you found that you respond better to high sets, high reps, with moderate weight and lower rest? (For example, 10x10, 65-75% 1RM, 60-90 seconds rest) This would be opposed to routines of low sets, moderate reps, high weight, high rest. (For example, 3x8, 75-90% 1RM, ~3 minutes rest)
I have a lot of ideas of my own on this subject, but I’m interested in seeing what people here think about this. So, former distance runners, what say ye?
