I recently joined the military and now find myself waiting for my courses with not much to do other than train.
I am 5’10 170lbs (boring eh?). Max lifts are 285 bench, 325 squat, 405 dead. BF is around 10%.
I haven’t decided exactly what my goals are. I know this is blasphemy, but all I know, for now, is that I want to add size but stay in great shape. So I’ve decided to do ABBH and 400m sprints every other day.
An example day would look like this:
11:00 -> 3x 400m sprints with 2 minutes rest between. Try to keep each sprint under 1:10. PR for the 400m, which I just started doing 1 month ago is 59 seconds.
16:00 -> Hit the gym for ABBH.
The next day I’ll rest or do some light cardio and ab/calf training.
My question is should I do the 400m sprints on a seperate day? Are there advantages/disadvantages to training twice a day? I have TONS of spare time and resources (food, supplements, equipment,indoor track) so training twice a day 5 days a week is very doable.
