Cardio/sprinting and foundation 1

Recommended Posts

Natalie Daniels

Hello,

I'd like to add some cardio/explosive work into my routine. Nothing crazy, was thinking about adding maybe 5 rounds of flat sprinting at the end of my lower body routine that i do twice a week. Do you think is a good idea? Or that would interfere with the GB training results? If the latter is the case, I'd avoid adding them because GB training is my priority. Here's my weekly routine and I'd like to receive your opinion:

M: upper body + thoracic stretch

T: core + lower body 

W: side split + handstand

T: like Monday 

F: like Tuesday

S: front split + handstand

S: rest

Hey Natalie, it strongly depends on your basic strength development, especially in the lower body, hips, and knees. Sprinting and decelerating increase the amount of stress on the connective tissue and for this reason, a stronger lower limb and hips muscles should be the primary focus especially if you have never done sprinting before.

Thanks for the reply. I'm definitely stronger in my lower body than in my upper. I'm confused whether I should start sprinting like a beginner or not. I've done some sprinting in the past but that was 15 years ago. Can you suggest anything else I can do?

Unfortunately no, usually when i do physical preparation coaching i need specifically to observe how hips and knees work during the normal walk,fast walk, lunges, and stepping up and down from a step. legs could be strong but the effect of running impact on knees has low to do with strength per se, hips stabilization muscles do the most of the work on preventing lower limb joints disalignment.
