Well football season is upon us, which means its time to turn it up a notch. Since January, most of our team and myself have been getting up and lifting at 6am, 4 days a week. Or program design has been nearly flawless... until now.
Now that summer has rolled around, we need to work on endurance ontop of strength. lifting the same amount of time, but then going directly to conditioning (running).
Our running days consist of
A.) Conditioning days (300's, 150's)
b.) Agility days (Various drills, but fast paced and still extremely challanging)
C.) Speed days (40's, 20's)
Being directly after lifting I'm not only afraid of losing muscle but getting injured too. The last thing I need is to squat heavy, then go out and blow a hammy to pieces sprinting...
Finally my question: What should my diet look like in order to keep packing on the muscle, and avoid over training in this environment?
Should I eat something between lifting and running, or just eat big before and after?
I was considering downing my whey in between the lifting and running sessions, depending on if I'll throw it up or not...
Any advice would really be appretiated!!
