I run a 4 day split:
Day 1- Upper
Day 2- Lower
Day 3- OFF
Day 4- Upper
Day 5- Lower
I like to do sprints three times a week if possible. I usually do them after a lower body workout. I've heard it's not a good idea to do them the day before a leg workout. If I do sprints after a leg workout, will they hinder any growth in my legs? I think I may be pounding the shit out of them after a heavy leg workout and then incline sprints on the treadmill. I'm trying to figure out where would be best to place the sprints or any HIIT for fat burning.
I'm an athlete, so sprints are right up my alley, right to the point. But if they are affecting my leg growth and strength, I need to figure something out.
Any options fellas? Thanks in advance!
