Hi, I’m inseason and am unsure what program i shouls be doing, i finished ash’s in season size program a couple of weeks ago with great results. I was sick for a couple weeks and have lost alot of fitness.
I have lower leg/anckle/knee problems and am ment to limit my running to club training 2-3x a week and games. I want to be the fittest in my position in my comp. We do a fai bit of short interval training 1-2x a week at club, The treatment with my injuries is going good but really dont want to push it by doing more running. I have alright strength levels, but still want to improve alot in strength aswell as im in a weak pack.
I have access to most equipment and can train every day, and all day monday/ tuesday.
Thanks heaps.April 6, 2009 at 11:23 pm #25150propGuest
Heres what I’m currently doing
Monday: Upper Body Pushing weights, rowing intervals, heavy bag work
Tuesday: Lower Body Weights, bike work, Club training
Wednesday: Upperbody Pulling weights, Bike/rower/swimming, optional Club Training depending on my legs or bike
Thursday: Full Body Power, club training
I have a hard time getting my heart rate up on the bike so I use it more for lactic acid work in my legs and for leg endurance. Sometimes with the rower i do a set or 2 on the cross trainer because i get a bit tight in my back doing it all on a rower. I dont do any Olympic lifts to keep the weight of my lower legs, i do explosive box squats.
I was thinking of adding a beastly circuit or one of alwyn cosgrove’s complex’s at the end of a weights session, aswell as some tabata intervals.
My weights and cross training intervals are all stuff ash has written about.
Is there any way I could organise this better, or any ideas for improvement
cheers, sorry for the long post
