Cheers folks, hope you’re all doing well and feeling good.
I’ll try to make this short and sweet. I train with 5/3/1, lifting x4 times a week. My main focus and goal is to gain strength and improve on the core lifts, I would also like to gain some good mass in the process through proper diet. I have shifted my focus from conditioning as I realize you can’t have it all at once. I do, however, believe I can atleast maintain what I consider a fair level of fitness I have achieved. For this, I do hill sprints after my lower body sessions, and do jump rope and bodyweight calisthenic circuits x2 a week. These are fairly intense are amount to about 15-20 minutes of work.
I’m planning on building a prowler with my dad, but in the meantime have made a makeshift sled and also found a good surface for my sledgehammer. I would like to incorporate these two tools into my GPP days and ideally replace the jump rope/BW circuits.
I was wondering about fatigue, CNS, not muscle or soreness. I realize since sled work is concentric there is very little DOMs. I just don’t want to detract from the lifting, and sled work is weighed at the end of the day. I was wondering about ways to incorporate it that would still allow me to maintain my fitness and possibly help facilitate leans gains via some fat burning while not completely frying myself. I was thinking of either something like 15-30 minutes of continuous dragging with fairly light weight, or short distance sprints with light-moderate weight, say 10 trips. I would just like to hear from some folks who’ve had experience with this and the results they got.
Appreciate the help in advance,
