Hey guys, hope I can get some good advice regarding my dilemma.
Allpros beginner routine (2x Squat,Bench,DL,OHP,Rows) 3 times a week.
Rest days: Pt pyramid (100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups and 500 sit-ups total)
I also run for about 2-3 miles to increase mileage and endurance.
I’m on last year of high school (18) and I want to join the army, I’m fine regarding the strength aspect of the assessment but my endurance eg running is down low and I’m trying to reduce my running time.
Been going to the gym for a while now and am still a beginner, and I like to lift heavy. I was fine for a while doing pt and running during off days, but now i find that it is interfering with my lifts. My core and forearms would be sore or feel “fatigued” and my grip strength would start to fail me.
Of course, the PT and endurance should take priority, but I also want to get stronger, bigger and at the same time and run faster and perform better.
Any ideas? Should I lower the volume? Should I switch over to a more performance-based routine? Or sack it and focus on PT and running?
