I swim competitively for a club team 5 times a week 2 hours a day. I am currently working out 3 times a week, Mon Lower body Tues upper body and Fri whole body (alot of Oly. lifts and compound movements). This workouts focus mainly alot on strength increase meaning 2-4 rep range and lifting as heavy as possible. This type of lifting, I understands, targets the CNS system. Now the practices for swimming are very high intensity and I swim at 4pm for two hours. I was wondering if this would affect my CNS system and make me weaker lifts. Also I was wondering I should modify my workout to put in more rest due to the fact of the swimming.
I am a sprinter, 50 free 22.5 100free 51.1 and 100 fly 57.1,
6" tall 180 lbs eat around 250grams of protien throughout the day eat alot of carbs throughout the day until evening and greens and some fruits in mid day. I try to eat clean and i dont use supplments at the moment.
Recap: I swim hard and lift hard. Does competitive swimming affect my CNS so much that I should decrease the workload on my lifting?
