If you're doing them right they should engage the abductors too, which is close ish to the quads.‘Cheers for that mate appreciate it I’ll have a look now!
On situps which I’ve recently only started doing past few weeks as I felt it wouldn’t be something on my weak point so didn’t add them in till later!
I do my situps with my feet under dumbells which keep them locked down but have noticed these few weeks that I’m getting the burn in my quads more than anything when doing them is it’s something I’m not used to I expected the burn to be in the back or mainly ab area!?
Yeah your right there when I do the situps on the fintan workout I feel it slot in my abs then as nothings holding my feet down!If you unfix your feet you’ll get more core engagement.
If I was you I would purchase a yoga mat there very comfy and can get difference thickness the more the comfier!
I do first the most part but sometimes I can end up breathing slower than the movement, for example during the press up test. Once I get to the later reps it’s hard not to breath fully out the mouth though, so I tend to let my breathing go then as it’s max effort.Do you control the rhythm through the eccentric/concentric movements?
Where are you getting rug burn? I’m constantly doing sit ups on carpet and not once had this, only place I could imagine is your lower back? Pair of shorts sorts that right out.
That’s good new fella keep with it!First week with 4 runs ever, really happy have no problems at all. Just shows with stretching and taking it easier on leg weight lifting can decrease chances of injury’s went down a good bit for me,
Wednesday hill sprints 19min
Friday 3miler 27.50min
Today 4miles with sprints no idea on time forgot to check !
Happy with my progress feeling easier on the hill sprints especially, so going to keep upping them 1 more every week I think.
Ohhh I like that *text deleted* try that tuesday ! (Secretly hate hill sprints ahah) still nowhere near The standard yet but getting there am a big fella at 230lbs have gotten a lot more strict and upped walking on days off from the runs!That’s good new fella keep with it!
If your finding the hill sprints a bit easier maybe after each one do a leg workout? In my case I went from doing 5x hill sprints to 20x as was finding them a bit easier but now I do squats after each hill which of course has made the hills so much harder now!
