I'm currently looking to improve my general all round performance in Soccer and I'm currently lifting 3x a week following the JasonDB 5x5 program. I'd also like to improve both my sprinting speed and conditioning. So far my plan looks like this:
Tuesday: Sprints (Long rest to focus on speed and not conditioning)
Weds: Lift in the morning, 6 a side game in evening for 40mins
Thurs: Sprinting conditioning (I was thinking nightmare runs?)
I need help deciding how much distance to sprint for and how long to rest for between sprints? Also would 1 nightmare run be enough or should I rest afterwards and then do it again?
I'm also cutting atm so in a calorie deficit. Will I be able to make speed and conditioning gains whilst cutting?
Thanks for the help.
