I’d be glad to help but I need to know where you are referencing in our book? Please give me the page where you are reading this
Thanks for the great book (TFTUA)! This is my first post here 🙂
I was wondering about the duration of the core-Strength warmup for the general strength training for me as runner.
Do I understand it right if I do it this way:
If I do 4 different core-workouts, with each 5 sets, this will alone last 1h. 2min break after each set are 40 min pause + 30s-60s per workout –> Nearly 1h for Core strength warmup.
The leg and upper body strength in Level 3 will last ~7min (incl. 3min break) for 4 sets–> 28 min.
How much weight should I apply maximum for this workout (core and leg), currently I am at >30% Bodyweight with weight-plate.

its about page 231ff (Chapter “General Strength Assessment and Improvement”) in the TFTUA book.
In Core Stregth Workouts – Stage 3 you write:
“… Select three or four excercises… do no more than five sets of each excercise. Rest two minutes between sets”
With max. 4 excercises with each 5 sets this are 20 sets overall.
The second question was about the max. weight I should use for the general strength assessment (Stage 3 Workout): “… 1×6 reps of box step-ups with weight …”
One further question on the one-sided-workouts: first all reps on one side and after that change to the other side, or change after each rep?
Thanks a lot,
