I have been doing the starting strength program now for 1 month and i have to say i am loving it. I have been doing the program on Mon/Wed/Fri while on Tue/Thur i have been doing an HIIT session of sprints for fat loss.
So far this routine has been working well as my weight has been staying the same but my waist is getting smaller so i must be putting on muscle
However this week we started pre-season rugby training which is every Tue/Thur but because it incorporates a lot of sprinting it pretty much covers my HIIT session. but it also includes a few routines which have a bucket load of press ups in them to the point of me having to stop doing them the proper way and move onto my knees to continue them. and in the end my arms, shoulders and chest is knackered.
Considering this, am i still OK to continue with the heavy weight program on Mon/Wed/Fri? as i don't want to stop increasing my strength while i am training but i also don't want to over train and then not see any benefits for my effort.
Oh BTW when i started the SS program it was the 1st time i was actually lifting weights in the gym rather than doing crappy classes, so it is safe to say i am a complete beginner.
Thanks in advance
