Can I combine both endurance and strength training in same sessions…
From this article –
A typical ME progression will include one workout a week and last about six to eight weeks. Due to the duration and heavy muscular loading of these workouts, fitting additional high-intensity training into the week will only be possible for athletes with an extensive background in this sort of high-intensity work. Allow at least three days of easy recovery workouts after each ME workout to start with as you learn how your body reacts to these. As mentioned earlier, you MUST maintain your aerobic base during this period or you will actually de-train. This training block is best used during the late Base Period and into the specific preparation period.
I am still in Base period, but when I look at Specificity Weeks with ME in my training plan, I see
– Z3 Weighted Climb once a week and
– one Strength session for maintenance purpose (half the volume of core/max strength workouts that I am doing now)
– rest of the days are Z1/Z2 workouts
Hope this helps.
