This coming Friday, I will have been training for two weeks on SS. Been great so far, and I’m already feeling stronger. The goal here of course being to continue getting stronger, while gaining about 30-40 lbs of lean mass and dropping to about 10% BF – however long it takes, though obviously the sooner the better.
Some secondary goals, though no less important to me, are my sport specific training, and what I’ve recently learned is called General Physical Preparedness.
My sports specific shit (parkour, freerunning, and gymnastics) is very technique heavy right now, and will be for quite some time. In other words, I am not at an advanced enough level yet for it to be severely impacting my recovery ability – yet.
The third area of course being GPP, which is where my question comes in. I can see this being the area that could potentially interefere with my lifts and ability to recover, should I over do it. I’ve been looking at some rudimentary stuff, such as conditioning stuff fighters do, as well as the strongmen type stuff… but I figure it best to ask you experienced guys what you would recommend.
Boils down to this: focusing on SS for strength and mass gain (eventually adding more climbing, pullups, dips and such as I get a better gauge of my recovery), my other training for skill building, and I am looking to incorporate some GPP to get my cardio and endurance up. Nothing too insane; I don’t mean to make it sound like I’m trying to run a marathon whilst simultaneously adding mass and lifting heavy ass shit. Hopefully you all see where I’m coming from.
Anyway. How should I go about this? Any specific programs/routines you recommend? Apologies in advance for the long post!!
