In the past few years I have moved to upper-lower and full-body splits because my aim is not aesthetics-oriented bodybuilding and it likely never will be again.
I would like to do the Spartan run or other mud-obstacle race in the Fall. So I have moved to a full body program in order to open up more days for running. So far I have one long run, one fartlek run, and one moderate-intensity run. It’s not a complicated approach but my endurance has improved greatly.
My question is: where would you place a hill sprint session if on a full body program? Do you think it’s advisable to do an upper lower split if wanting to do hill sprints to decrease the frequency of weight sessions for legs? If I were to do upper-lower I’d still keep three weight sessions per week. I know they have an impact on recovery, like anything else, but my legs rarely get sore these days.
Thanks for all the work you do here.
