Okay, not too sure if this thread has already been created, but I really want some advice on when I should be lifting.
Ive been working out now for about 16 months, slow gains since I am constantly active. I started working out November 2010 at about 125, now April 6th I am at 160ish, with the combination of late puberty and weigh protein I have seen myself completely transform. Ive hit a rough patch though, back in September our Universities gym was closed for renovation and Ive had to use free-weights. The free-weights are amazing the name of them are Power-block and they stack up to 45 or 50lbs.
Anyway to make a long story short I started training for my half marathon that I will be competing in on June 12th (lake Placid), and I was wondering what workout routine I should be doing? considering I am racking up the miles each week. Im on week 4 of the training plan and from here on out I'll be running 22+ miles a week.
I would,in my head love to gain mass, but it will be insanely difficult to gain while running that much, so what should my workout plan be in terms of lifting? I heard bodyweight training is where I should be focusing such as dips/pullups/pushups with pull/ wall sits while curling.
Here is My running plan:
Monday, Wednesday,Thursday, Saturday. Saturdays I cannot lift because those are my distance days where I'll be running 8+ miles for the next 2-3 months.
Here WAS my workout plan before running:
Monday - Biceps Shoulders
Wednesday - Back/Chest/Triceps
Friday - Biceps/shoulders
Saturday - Back/Chest/Triceps
On the off days I focused on my abs, doing around 200 situps and 100 leg lifts
I would love for someone to push me in the right direction in terms of my workout and on which days. Thank you for reading and have a nice day.
