I'm all for radical exercise methods, being the radical one :cool:



So should I do leg day, hit the lunges, the deadlifts and the squats and try to totally Je suis fatigue myself, then run at a pace of somewhere between jogging and sprinting?

What are the benefits? Are there risks? Should I do it anyway?

I do this sometimes, I find it uncomfortable, but less uncomfortable than running the day after 'leg day'. But I train my whole body every time I lift, and am training for a half marathon so it's a necessary evil unfortunately.

I actually did it and it was incredible


The night-sky, the crisp freshness, the clouds just opened as I ran up my road, despite being dry until that point - like God trying to cool me off at the end



Was so ****ing amazing, but felt like I was wearing leg weights or running through water

No real benefits will be gained from a short burst of non-intense cardio having already burnt yourself alive doing a ridiculous amount of leg volume

No real risks out of the ordinary

You should probably have more of a structure to your cardio routine and probably your weights one

I don't really get doms in my legs so it's not much of a problem for me.

He would be so lucky to have my chicken legs. And my gloots.

If you're going to tire your legs out by running, better to do it after you've done the important stuff than beforehand.
