Well I think I’d like to join my school track team to throw. I have been focusing on size/strength so this will be a bit of a change but I’d like to continue making gains in these areas through the training I do for the team.
I’d like to focus on the javelin I think (haven’t tried any of them yet though). So typical practices consist of a warm up 10 minute run, static stretching (which I’m going to ignore and do dynamic), form running, medicine ball work, sprinting or throw technique work, actual throwing, and lifting (2-3 times a week for 30-60 minutes).
I’m going to bring a cup of grape juice (my peri-workout drink) to sip on during practice. I want to stay as far away from catabolism as possible. On the contrary, I’d like to eat anabolically to make the gains of a bodybuilder even though I’m on a thrower’s routine. Any other ideas for this?
I’d like to make the most out of my lifting sessions. What should I do? I’m thinking the “Big 3” (though front squats instead of squats and maybe DB bench instead of BB) along with chinups and pullovers as the basis of my plan. Should I do 5X5?
And should I be doing anything on the weekend? The practices are 5 times a week.
