I know there may be tons of topics on running and lifting, but my case may/may not be a tad different.
I’m following SS, been doing it for about a 2 months and I’m up to Squat: 185, Deadlift 250, Press - 85, Bench - 135, PC - 135. So now that I’m getting up to larger weights, I’ve noticed recovery is a lot more important. I really feel crappy on my middle day workout some times…
I think I"m eating enough. 3 meals - a plate heaping with food, with focus on meat and veggies - a day, along with GOMAD. I gained about 30lbs since I started. I’m sleeping 8 hours a night, some nights when I stand watch I get 5 or less, but those are few and far between.
My main issue is my unit’s PT has this obsession with frog/broad jumps and bear crawls. These really trash my legs and lower back - respectively. I’m concerned it will shorten the linear progression. How should I program around these??
PT is MWF 0600-0700, I train Tue, Thu, Sat 0900-finish (usually an hour). It’s worked so far because I haven’t been lifting much weight. I don’t know if this is a huge concern, but I also walk a lot with a 35lb pack… but I feel like I’ve just gotten used to that.
Is there anything more I should be doing?? Supplement wise I’m only taking fish oil and a multi… sleep?? In the long run, is it ok that my linear progression wasn’t milked the optimal amount?
