I've recently hit a sort of training crossroads: I finished university, where for the majority of 3 years, my weights programs were given to me by the rugby club, with increased strength and speed in mind.
I've made fairly good progress. The problem now is that after 3 years, I can now do what I want in terms of training. I can't play rugby at the moment, so I don't have to stress too much about my 40m time or VO2 max, but I can more or less train however I want.
This is why I'm at a loose end; the sort of training background I come from is mixed strength sports, powerlifting and bodybuilding. I've done a little bit of Strongman training too - I feel like I should pick a direction and go with it, but I'm having a hard time deciding which.
Has anyone else been similarly spoiled for choice and clueless as to which direction to head for? And was there anything which helped you make your decision?
FYI, at present I am still looking generally at improving my physique and strength - I usually start my sessions with some maximal strength work and work down from there, utilising bodybuilding style techniques etc. Currently doing a 3/5 day split (Upper body pushing/Upper body pulling/Legs), with sledgehammer & tyre sessions 2-3 times a week.
I wasn't sure which area to post in...that's kind of the point.
