Coach I do a lift specific set up…I’m wanting to add 2 sprint workouts to this setup for fat loss without losing muscle mass.
MONDAY - Bench+ assistance (chest, biceps)
WEDNESDAY - Squat+ assistance (quads, hams)
THURSDAY - Press+ assistance (delts, triceps)
SATURDAY - Deadlift+ assistance (back, traps)
If using progressive overload and getting stronger each workout, would sprints AFTER the workout still have that big of a negative effect on muscle growth due to the sprints turning off MTor?
You recommended in the past to add Sprint 8 at the end of my Press workout…But If wanting to do Sprint 8 once a week and Poliquins protocol of 400m/4 min rest, 300m/3 min rest, 200m/2 min rest 100m… Where would you recommend I add these 2 sessions or how would you change my setup to make these work?
Is there any benefit to very short sprints for fat loss / muscle gain? For example I saw a study that showed six 35 meter sprints with 10 seconds rest between each to raise testosterone and lower cortisol and increase power. Or should I stick to Sprint 8 and also 400 meter sprints?
Thank you for your time Coach!
