Hello! Fellow out-of-shape surfer that wants to get in shape in the water but of course abide by Wendler’s programs as listed in Forever 5/3/1.
I have read Forever 5/3/1 and have a general understand the concept of not overloading the body and try to do everything. I understand how everything works for lower body, and wanted to hear about the upper body equivalent. For instance, you generally want to do prowler, hill sprints, sled, or run on the same day you do squats or deadlift. Of course this means you do not do any single leg assistance work. If you choose to do this kind of conditioning on a press day, it is advised you have a day of rest for the next day. Otherwise it will impact your squat/deadlift.
I assume the same applies for hard swimming sprints? That is to say, do the hard swimming on press day and skip the push and pull assistance? Or is swimming sprints not seen as taxing like prowlers and hill sprints, so you would still do the push and pull assistance work? I didn’t know if they were equivalent and you could apply the same logic.
I’m going to do a program with 5s PRO, 5x5 FSL and I want to do 2 days of hard swimming conditioning. I don’t know whether this is seen as truly taxing on the body or not; thought you guys could give immediate input. I searched the forum but couldn’t find anything. Thanks and I hope I don’t sound like a complete idiot!
