i did a 10k every other day apart from Sunday wich i would do a half marathon or more then a workout everyday apart from wed and sat.
thanks for the response yeah i have noticed i don't need to be doing crazy amounts of running as now im following any’s tomorrow which i was supposed to do a few months ago before my injury although i still used to do alot of the things on it like hill sprints.I would say that is alot but of course it goes down to how long you’ve been running and how used you are to the mileage?
Theres a few people I know in my area who do a lot of ironman and triathlons etc and I’ve followed their running routines and they run 10+ miles 5/6 days a week and at quick pace also but as said it’s what your used to and you can get injured any time.
Maybe just stick to what your training for and not go crazy with the miles as your not going to be doing any half marathons in training!
i use arnys plan to but havent been able to due to an injury and i cant find the workout for arnysMate, this seems to be the same workout you’ve posted a few times on here?
Here is my opinion: Look at which areas you will be required to perform in once you’re tested (vPJFT and RT). Then build a plan around that, or use Arny’s plan that’s available on here.
If you feel like Arny’s plan isn’t tough enough for you then increase sets/reps/run times etc. to make it more challenging.
Make sure you’re meeting the criteria expected of you (maximums, NOT MINIMUMS) and make sure you are flexible and mobile to prevent injury. That’s that.
There is no perfect plan, you will never be fit enough and you can’t train for every single thing.
would just like opinions of my new workout
200 decline pushups
and some dumbell work
That's some quality advice @Blackers ! I think a establishing a good balance between muscular endurance & strength training is something that is important. I would say that also as heavier weights are lifted the more on the ball with your mobility you should be too, what do you reckon chaps? for me, mobility is definitely an area i need to work on in my training anywaySome very dodgy or impressive timings here. My top tip with any phys plan is to always aim to become stronger.
Once upon a time I attended UKSF selection. Don’t worry- I failed!! But a key point I picked up on was to improve yomp/tab ability, you must get stronger! When you add strength, the less the load taxes your 1RM, allowing more energy reserves for subsequent tasks post March.
The same concept applies to press ups. The stronger you are, the less the load (in this case - your body) taxes you, and therefore you can move it up and down more times.
My advice therefore, is to add load to your press up or turn onto your back and get stronger by bench press and complimentary secondary exercises. There are minimal differences in kinematics and muscle activation between the two exercises. With the bench you can safely add more load and work in percentages which contribute to strength improvement. The core must contribute significantly as the load is increased. If your 1rm bench press is 100kg, then you can bench 50kg more times than someone with a 70kg 1rm. So if 2 people weigh 80kg, both with the same training age and technique (comes with time and also important) the stronger person will be able to perform more press ups as their ability to move 80kg will tax them less. Hopefully that makes sense. In other words aim to get strong.
When it comes to phys keep it simple and do the basics well.
For me i always do a mobility warm up before i start my gym session usually between 10 minutes but for me it's really important when lifting weights especially going heavy and overall just makes me feel like i can lift better. I would really advice anyone here to do a nice mobility warm up before starting your gym session as it's super beneficial and just makes you feel a whole lot better.That's some quality advice @Blackers !
