I am thinking really hard on where I want to take my training next, and a big part of me is considering adding some muscles to my physique by weightlifting.
Naturally, this opens up a bunch of questions:
- Is weightlifting and doing HIIT-sessions like The Sufferfest contraproductive?
- How can I slot in enough recovery?
- Is it even possible to balance both and come out the other side with some results?
A part of me is afraid to lose some of the progress I made during my time on the triathlon plans up until now.
Right now I have my eye on a 5x5 StrongLifts routine, which will see me squatting on three sessions a week, together with deadlifts, bench- and overhead presses and rows. The rest of the time I want to do some duathlon work (running and biking) plus some light yoga to stay limber.
@Coaches: Do you feel like this is something we could realize with the custom plans? Does it make sense?
@Community: Does anyone else do weightlifting or has some experience with heavy strength work together with The Sufferfest?
