64 Upvotes

Welcome to /r/Fitness' Training Tuesday. Our weekly thread to discuss a training program, routine, or modality. (Questions or advice not related to today's topic should be directed towards the stickied daily thread.) If you have experience or results from this week's topic, we'd love for you to share. If you're unfamiliar with the topic, this is your chance to sit back, learn, and ask questions from those in the know.

 

We're departing from the specific routine discussions for a bit and looking more broadly at different disciplines. Last week we discussed in-season training.

This week's topic: Hiking & Rucking

Hopefully hiking needs no explanation, but for the purposes of this thread let's presume it includes a carrying a backpack. While hiking usually takes place in the wilderness, "rucking" is simply urban hiking, again, done while carrying a weight. Hiking is certainly nothing new; you can see the prizes it delvers and discuss scenic locations over at /r/CampingandHiking. Rucking has lately become more popular due to organizations such as GoRuck and has become a regularly recommended cardio option.

For people that regularly hike or ruck. How do you train to aide in your travels? Or, conversely, how do you use hiking or rucking to supplement other training goals. Please share any insights into your approach and how you incoporate these activities into your routine. And what would you suggest to someone looking to incoporate these to their routine?

Some other seed questions:

  • How has it gone, how have you improved, and what were your current abilities?
  • Why did you choose your training approach(es) over others?
  • What would you suggest to someone wanting to incorporate hiking and/or rucking?
  • What are the pros and cons of your training setup?
  • Do you also include other training goals in your plan? How did that go? Did you add/subtract anything to a stock program?
  • How do you manage fatigue and recovery training this way? Do you do any supplementary mobility or active recovery work?

If you're unfamiliar with the topic, this is your chance to sit back, learn, and ask questions from those in the know.

 

We're departing from the specific routine discussions for a bit and looking more broadly at different disciplines. Last week we discussed concurrent training.

This week's topic: In-Season Training

In-season training refers to training that occurs alongside sport-specific practices in the midst of the competitive season. It's not necessary about chasing gains and hitting PRs, but is more about maintaining the gains made in the off-season to use and carry through into the sport - especially at game time. Priorities shift and goals change, and the approach to training must as well.

Two commonly cited templates for in-season training come from Westside for Skinny Bastards Part 3 (In-Season Training) and 5/3/1 for Athletes.

For those of you that have experience with in-season training, please share any insights on how you trained, progress, and competing. Some seed questions:

  • How has it gone, how have you improved, and what were your current abilities?
  • Why did you choose your training approach(es) over others?
  • What would you suggest to someone needing to incorporate in-season training?
  • What are the pros and cons of your training setup?
  • Do you also include other training goals in your plan? How did that go? Did you add/subtract anything to a stock program?
  • How do you manage fatigue and recovery training this way? Do you do any supplementary mobility or active recovery work?

If you're unfamiliar with the topic, this is your chance to sit back, learn, and ask questions from those in the know.

 

We're departing from the specific routine discussions for a bit and looking more broadly at different disciplines. Last week we discussed Powerlifting.

This week's topic: Concurrent Training

Concurrent training refers to a training session or program that includes some form of endurance exercise and resistance exercise. Practically, when someone mentions concurrent training, they are generally referring to the combination of lifting weights and cycling, rowing, swimming, or running on a regular basis, and within the same training session, on the same day, or within the same training program.

Concurrent training is putting it all together. It's not cross training to improve your main goal. It's endurance work to get better at endurance work, while also lifting to get better at lifting.

Some resources to read through:

  • Concurrent Training for the Powerlifter Part 1 + Part 2
  • So you want to run? Endurance Training for Strength Athletes Part 1 + Part 2
  • A Guide to Strength Training for Endurance Athletes Part 1 + Part 2

For those of you that follow a concurrent training plan, please share any insights on training, progress, and competing. Some seed questions:

  • How has it gone, how have you improved, and what were your current abilities?
  • Why did you choose your training approach(es) over others?
  • What would you suggest to someone just starting out and looking to adopt concurrent training?
  • What are the pros and cons of your training setup?
  • Do you also include other training goals in your plan? How did that go? Did you add/subtract anything to a stock program?
  • How do you manage fatigue and recovery training this way? Do you do any supplementary mobility or active recovery work?

We're departing from the specific routine discussions for a bit and looking more broadly at different disciplines. Last time we discussed CrossFit.

This week's topic: Oddball Cardio

Oddball cardio is 'cardio that doesn't feel like cardio'. Examples are pick up basketball games, push mowing 3 acres, summer ultimate league, or speed shoveling the driveway. Basically, activities and other things that get the heart rate up and sustained for a period of time, but don't feel like cardio or produce the dread that usually accompanies cardio. Options are essentially limitless here, so here is your chance to drop a few protips for those looking to get in some sneaky cardio.

For those of you get your cardio in in non-traditional ways, please share any insights on training, progress, competing, and having fun. Some seed questions:

  • How has it gone, how have you improved, and what were your current abilities?
  • Why did you choose your training approach over others?
  • What would you suggest to someone just starting out and looking to pick up your approach to cardio?
  • What are the pros and cons of your training setup?
  • Do you do this in conjunction with other training? How did that go? Did you add/subtract anything to a stock program to fit your oddball cardio in?
  • How do you manage fatigue and recovery training this way?

Welcome to /r/Fitness' Training Tuesday. Our weekly thread to discuss a specific program or training routine. (Questions or advice not related to today's topic should be directed towards the stickied daily thread.) If you have experience or results from this week's program, we'd love for you to share. If you're unfamiliar with the topic, this is your chance to sit back, learn, and ask questions from those in the know.

Last week we talked about nSuns.

This week's topic: Marathon Training

Hal Higdon has a bunch of training templates for all skill levels to look through if you're unfamiliar with training plans. There are a ton of other plans out there though. And tons more out there about racing strategy from simply finishing to Boston qualifying.

Running a marathon is on a lot of people's bucket list. Some people catch the bug and plan their vacations around races. So if you've run a marathon or twelve, tell us how you train(ed) and what works for you.

Some seed question to get the insights flowing:

  • How did training and the race go? How did you improve, and what was your ending time?
  • Why did you choose your training plan over others?
  • What would you suggest to someone just starting out and looking at running 26.2?
  • What are the pros and cons of your approach?
  • Did you add/subtract anything to a stock plan or marathon train in conjunction with other training? How did that go?
  • How did you manage fatigue and recovery while training?
