Hey, I’m a Norwegian that’s been hanging around these forums for a while and now decided to ask you infinitely wise-in-the-ways-of-training guys for some help.
The problem is as follows. I train football(the European type, which I flat out refuse to refer to as soccer) 4 times a week plus one match, bringing the total up to 5 sessions a week 9 months out of the year. In addition to this, I also do some strengthtraining. My question is how to most effectively combine these forms of exercise to achieve improved strength?
Personally, I am thinking of doing two fullbody strength-sessions a week. This will hopefully allow my body to rest a bit more and get stronger. The sessions would then basically consist of deadlifts, squats, chins, standing rows, bench press and dips/ skullcrushers.
Now, does this sound like a good idea? What I’m looking for is basically a program which allows me to increase strengthwise even while I train endurance-related 4-5 times week. I don’t really care whether or not I gain much mass during training, it is simply
strength I am looking for.
