I’ve just started weight training this week, so I am as beginner as it gets. A few days ago was my first time touching free-weights. Ever. My lifting weights are pathetic (less than half my body weight) but hey, you have to start somewhere right?
I’ve done a lot of reading and decided this looked like a good plan to start with:
The 3-day-per-week, full-body workout plan
by Chad Waterbury
For diet I’m following Precision Nutrition by JB.
Workout days will be Monday, Wednesday, Saturday.
My main question is if, and on what days can I run? I have a treadmill so I can monitor/do whatever distance/time/heart-rate % is best, but I’ve read so much conflicting information I’m not sure what I should do.
I’d like to get to a point where I do a 10 minute mile or less, or at least jog a few miles without wanting to die. (yes my level of fitness now is awful, i’ve spent most of my life playing video games ) But is this going to conflict with or nullify my weight training? Any help or advise would be much appreciated.
