Re: Weight-training: Benefits, What types, Routines etc.

Just thought I'd also throw in.... during normal training I like to maintain one lower body day per week. Just using my schedule as an example. I typically do a Quality Session on Saturday morning followed up by Lower Body (LB) weight training. I am not really looking to gain strength and haven't be...

Also.... here is a good link and postings from Tinman on the 4th entry down http://www.therunzone.com/http://www.therunzone.com//viewtopic.php?p=8879#p8879 Granted the runner he is describing is putting in lower overall mileage but there are similarities in the workout structure with the Big Days/Wo...

Re: Still drinking that kool -aide (critique my last workout)

AT, Funny that you posted this. I am still trying to slowly build back up my running volume (but having to do so veeery cautiously as my body is still somewhat out of whack). Anyways, last night I was going to do just a 50 minute run with some fartlek thrown in somewhere. Instead, since I have been ...

Re: Weight-training: Benefits, What types, Routines etc.

I personally would prefer heavier weights, but for lower reps, and longer rest intervals. The longer rest and typically less time under tension doesn't result in lots of hypertrophy along with the strength gains (assuming you aren't putting in 8-10 sets of 5 reps with squats, etc). Plus, I find that...

Jerry Rice and Running Hills

Though he wasn't a "distance" runner.... a 2.5 mile run for essentially a sprinter is pretty awesome...just thought you all would enjoy

Re: Racing before being in shape?

If, as was mentioned above, that you believe that you will not be reinjured, cause aggravation, etc., I'd say go for it if it is a shorter race and even if you are not in "peak" condition. I have had a few recurring injury issues for months literally. Back in April I took 12 days off from land runni...

Re: Injury after days off....but from weight training...not running

This was the first thing I could find. I believe Bott is a bit of an older lifter, but this is actually a 14 day cycle he had to go to for the lower body. A little more on the extreme as far as spreading out of training frequency, but you can see how it relates. http://www.elitefts.com/documents/14_...

Here is another article which show some different ways in which Poliquin might schedule training for individuals. http://www.charlespoliquin.com/ArticlesMultimedia/Articles/Article.aspx?ID=430 I believe from reading past articles that Option 2 is given to a lot of his more novice athletes.

Injury after days off....but from weight training...not running

I thought this might be of interest. It is a weightlifting coach's observation that injuries typically happen after complete days off from training. Much as Tom has cautioned against when running. http://www.charlespoliquin.com/ArticlesMultimedia/Articles/Article/449/A_Few_Words_with_Weightlifting_C...

Re: Military: Anyone in it? Out of it? Opinions?

Well, if he does decide to go to BUD/S and does make it...I believe there is approx $40K in bonus money upon graduation from SQT. But yes, if you are looking to just get in some good Intel career related experience and pay off loans... a SOF unit is likely not the appropriate road. I just had to pla...

Re: Military: Anyone in it? Out of it? Opinions?

In regards to the SEALs and BUD/S. One other thing that I don't think was mentioned is that Officers only get one shot, period. Even if you don't quit, but instead are medically dropped due to injury, you don't get an opportunity to come back. That is unless something has changed in the last couple ...

Re: Military: Anyone in it? Out of it? Opinions?

If you went SF, enlisted would still be the way to go, IMO. And actually, I believe the requirements are that you have to have 2 years active duty time as an officer before you can step in and be in charge of an SF detachment (referred to as an ODA; Operational Detachment Alpha). And unfortunately t...

Re: Military: Anyone in it? Out of it? Opinions?

As far as the SpecOps community, I can speak to the SEALs and some of the SF route (from personal knowledge, and actual active duty friends who are currently in both SOF units). All together I guess I have 7 friends who are in SOF units and one who just retired this past Jan. Active duty: As far as ...

Re: Military: Anyone in it? Out of it? Opinions?

I believe he is talking about 3 year deployments to different commands. True, during your time on a boat, you will be limited to treadmill running. That is the part where I have lucked out having been a Reservist...given the jobs the USNR is filling...I was in a "boots on ground" job. I think the Ai...
