    Well I used to run ( do jogs and sprints) everyday, but that was all I did. Recently, I decided to do weights one day and cardio the other, but now I realized I am getting way stronger but my sprints are slowing down tremendously. Is there another alternative which will not harm neither my strength or sprints/jogging conditioning.......

    Seconded. And I'd like to go on record saying this clown isn't a troll in most of the forums he posts in... his tendencies in this forum however, are suspect IMO.

    Don't do a lower body workout the day before you want to set new PRs for sprinting.

    I think you're doing something wrong


    More muscle won't slow you down if you train it right

    I believe I said most... Maybe I need to look a little closer. but the grappling mods have a tendency to pull the trigger a lot faster than I do, and the bulk of his training forum posts are in there, so I figured, maybe he's not an asshole... Maybe I was wrong.

    He's fine, just a bit idealistic and paranoid. I dont think he's actually trolling though.

  15. train for speed -> get speed

    train for slow -> get slow




    learn to train for what you want. weights can help you get wherever you want to go.

    I don't have time for a snappy comeback as we're all very busy changing the lightbulb.

    Don't worry -- weights slow me down, too. I can run way faster than I can carry a heavy farmers walk.
