Cardio, running and sprints with strength training

Recommended Posts

I currently jog a couple of times a week on off days for fitness/cardio. I usually cover around 3 miles over 30 minutes.

I'm interested in doing sprints instead for variety.

 

Has anyone got any experience of this and offer any advice?

Sprints IMO are better suited to after training than on days off

YMMV, etc

You can do both just fine, as long as you ease into it a bit, i.e. don´t start with 20 hillsprints with a weighted vest. And you also probably don´t want to do them the day before squatting, so you´d want to pay attention to scheduling.

As already mentioned above, don't go into sprints directly.

Start running normally and once warmed up, start with easy sprints. When the easy sprints don't feel hard anymore, you can start doing harder ones.
