as has been said before, this site is primarily about hypertrophy and strength, just different applications. All coaches will certainly agree that running has its benefits, but it won’t be the primary focus of many articles if any.
What the coaches here tend to emphasize is variations of running in a program such that the least amount of muscle is lost. The primary goal will always be strength and size however. Even in a fight, arguably the harder you hit/better you grapple/stronger you are, the quicker you will end it.
Perhaps one of the coaches could comment further.[/quote]
I wrestle for my high school so I disagree that strength is all you need in a fight.
I associate wrestling to fighting without punching, and our high school team never had the time to lift weights, we always did constant motion exercises. Without those I wouldn’t last in a match past the first period.
Unless I feel convinced otherwise, I’m going to stick to running, along with my workout. Because without it, I noticed unwanted weight gain(mostly fat in my stomach) and laziness.
I mean if it’s working for me I should stick to it, right?
