Well I’ve decided I want to do a tough mudder event and be fully prepared in the months leading up to it. It’s going to be happening here on june 2012. Even though I’ve still got alot of time, I’m just confused as to what i should be doing in the following months since it’s kind of conflicting with my bodybuilding goals at the same time.
My cardio has never been great, I’ve always opted to lift heavy weight rather than run a few miles everyday. Nonetheless, I plan on bumping my running to about 4 days a week on the elliptical/stairmaster. I just have a few questions.
1)Can I continue doing a bodybuilding split 5 days a week while training for the event, or should I switch to full body. 2) Is running going to be enough? 3) Is there anything I should do differently in the 8-12 weeks leading up to the event? Like should I cut back on weight lifting to 2-3x a week and just do circuit training or something? 4) Any important tips?
