Hello all, I have a problem that I could use some advice/help with. I am in the Marine Corps and Stationed at Camp Pendleton. I was priveleged enough to start a powerlifting team here on Pendleton and have even been granted a budget to pay for equipment, clothing, travel etc....
The MArine corps seems to think that the only way to physical fitness is to run long distances 3 times a week. Originally the team was excused from this crap...but recently I have been told that on top of my training as a powerlifter I am going to be required to do PT with my unit (run long distances) 3 times a week.
As I have a very high Physical Fitness Test score this is absolutely rediculous. But, nonetheless, I am going to have to be a marathon runner 3 times a week.
My question is, do you all think I will be able to keep training as a lifter, still getting bigger stronger and improving my totals while running my ass of 3 times a week. Also any tips or pointers on how to stay successful as a powerlifter while running so damn much would be of great help. Thanks
