    Leg Day and Sprints?

    Should I run my sprints on leg day or upper body day?

    I do a lot of cleans, squats, lunges, and jumps on my leg days, and wanted to know, should I sprint the same day, or the next when I bench, and do chest.

    Depends if you're exhausting yourself through the sprints. If so, do them on leg day so you have more time to recover for the next leg day. But lift first, run after.

    IF you are aiming to increase your sprinting speed, as I assume you are, I would definitely do sprints on leg day. Myself I would do them first so that you aren't paralyzed after squats etc. Back in my track days I would do 5 x 50 m sprints top speed, 10x 25, 2-4x 100m, and then some 200 to get the wind going. Normally when I do legs I blast them so by bench day I shouldn't be able to run very quickly ahah.

    I would do sprints on a day all by themselves, IMO they are taxing as hell.
    if you insist on doing them on one of the two I would to them in the AM or PM with a few hours rest between your upper body workout and maybe of you do hard sprints then do a speed upper workout.

    yeah I am trying to increase my sprinting speed.

    I think I should do them about 1 hour before I go lift on my leg days then right?
    Or if I have to, 1 hour before my upper days.

    At least 1-2 hours, get a good meal in after wards ! On some days you could even cut the sprints short, do half and then go straight to the weights or about 30 minutes in between. Also look into plyometrics for explosive strength.

    I think you are underestimating how taxing sprints can be. Go do a balls to the walls sprint session then an hour later go see how your leg lifts are.

    I'll test it. Then decide.

    Thanks for all the help!

    If you know a thing or two about squats, or cleans, and how to raise them, I started a new thread for myself again. Thanks!
