I've discovered the joys of sprinting a few months ago, and I'm feeling leaner, more explosive and more athletic. However, I'm massively unsure about how to get the balance between weights (muscle growth/maintenance) and sprints. Currently I keep the two on separate days, and I'd like to keep it this way, but my weights days are still done on a BB-style split (push, pull etc).
Due to the demands on my legs from the sprints, I've massively cut back on lower-body work (squats, DLs etc), but I've read that these kind of low-body exercises are actually vital for sprinting and must be kept in. But I don't see how I can avoid overtraining or knackering my hammies/quads if I'm training legs in addition to sprinting?
Articles I read show full-body, olympic lift style weights workouts for sprint athletes, but I'm really unsure how to fit these in without overtraining or exhausting the legs.
