Running and workouts

Postby UnrealWorld » Oct 06, 2004 22:30

I have many questions. I readed Stretching Scientifically, now i'm a bit confused.

Should I do Strength training this day, Endurance training that one or do a little of each training possible everyday?

And is it bad to run everyday like 3 or 4 miles. Does running will have a bad effect on my stretching improvements? What is the best time to do running in my day if i'm doing the dynamic routine in the morning and a good training with everything in the afternoon? What is the better time for aerobic training if i dont only want do to jumping rope 5 minutes in a warm-up?

When I do jumping rope, my muscle get sore after and sometimes it's sore during two days. I heard jumping rope for 5 minutes everyday is very good. Should I do a hard jumping rope training and do it again only after two days or I should do it everyday and stop before my muscles get really sore?

It's usually best to do speed or technical work on the first day, strength on the second day, and endurance on a third day. I think trying to do everything everyday isn't a great idea.

Running will probably help you with stretching as long as you take long strides. Running is certainly much better than riding a bike if you want to improve your flexibility.

As far as running everyday, that seems like an awful lot. Do you have a specific sport that you are training for? Unless your sport is, in fact, running, I would cut down the running to just a handful of days a week.

Which muscles are getting sore? Your calves? Quads? When you say "jumping everyday is good", good for what? Five minutes seems too short for aerobic endurance. I personally don't like to train when my muscles are sore because I'm afraid that I'm not giving my body enough time to recover and adapt to the workouts. But others do not believe that there is anything wrong with working through soreness.

I think we need to know a little more about your fitness goals and which sports (if any) you are active in before we could give you more specific training suggestions.

Well I train to become a martial artist. Jumping rope and running are improving stamina. I want to improve my cardiovascular abilities. Well I know 5 minutes of aerobic exercises is short but for me jumping rope 10 minutes straight is a bit too much. It's my calves which are sore after jumping rope.

Bruce Lee, even if his goal wasn't to be the best runner, he was running everyday four miles in 24 to 25 minutes. I know, he's a professional conditionner. If i run everyday, i will adapt his training to me. One mile should be enough to start.

So in a wourkout day, where should I put aerobic training? I've put some in my warm-up but if i wanna do more?

What about doing push-ups and sit-ups everyday? A lot of people do this. You are saying it's better if we follow the rule "It's usually best to do speed or technical work on the first day, strength on the second day, and endurance on a third day." ?
