I’m going through the mailbag one question at a time.
In past Fireside Chats, I asked Derek Hansen about the Sprint Coach, Strength Coach & Physical Therapist Triad as well as How to Pick a Good Sprint Coach.
The next question is arranging your weight sessions around track practice.
Let’s assume you train at 5pm after work or school. Should you do your weights immediately after the running portion? This is my personal preference.
Or, in the morning?
If you do weights in the morning, the quality and quantity will depend if your running session within the next hour, or 6 hours later (with a mid-day nap!)
So many variables…. and then there is choosing what to do. Sets, reps, exercises, Olympic lifts, unilateral vs bilateral, weight loads…. all good questions for discussion! (see the weight training category for hundreds of articles on this topic)
Take a look at the video below.
