So this might be an odd question, but I’d appreciate some input.
For someone like me who is 140lbs and knows that too much conditioning is a road block to strength/ mass gains. How would you recommend moderating conditioning?
Background: Cross-country runner/wrestler. Run about 15 min (averaging 8.8 mph on a treadmill) 3 times a week. Run about 20 minutes once a week. (I enjoy running) I also do weighted bear crawls another day as conditioning.
I use 531 and I understand what type of conditioning, like walking and prowler pushes(don’t have access to), are recommended for strength/mass gains. The reason I’m posting this is because I have an extremely hard time giving up conditioning. I’ll admit it, I have an extreme phobia of getting fat/ losing my abs (I’m getting better about this though I hope). I don’t need to share my life story, but I’ve dealt with depression and talked to a counselor. So really the biggest obstacle for me is emotionally/ mentally.
So if anyone has some advice on how to find a balance between the conditioning I do now and something more conducive, I’m all ears.
