Just to clarify, I am a powerlifter who used to be a long distance runner.
I am currently bench only due to my facilities limitations. I am 35 years old, 5’5, weigh 208 and bench 315 raw.
Five years ago, I was benching 225@165 and able to run a 21:11 5K.
I was wondering if I tried to start running again (using this plan called the couch-to-5K) would I be able to maintain my strength.
It would be great to drop to 165 and still be able to bench 315 although I know that may not be a realistic expectation.
Are there any other bench-only guys out there who are runners as well?
