so, basically your'e doing interval training. Try to have a 1:1 work/rest ratio. Meaning, to start out, run hard for 1 minute, then walk for one minute. As this gets easier, move up to running 2 minutes, walking 2 minutes. Eventually work up to 5 minutes each, and then once you've mastered that, go to a 2:1 work/rest ratio (2 minutes run, 1 minute walk) and you should see big improvements fairly quickly by pretty much doing what you already do, just with a little modification

JohnnyBlaze I also fence, but I do that year round. Its a great work out, keeps my feet quick, and my flexibility improves tremendously.

Dano Usually I don't do much in the summer because I'm fairly active. But come time to get ready for the winter I do a split routine. 1-2 days of Lower Body conditioning, 1-2 days of Upper Body training( one week i'll do 2 days of upper and 1 day of lower, then the next week i'll do 1 day of upper and 2 days of lower), and in between I'll do 3 days of Cardio. 7th day is Sunday. That day is for sitting on the couch, eatting like shit, and having some drinks. That day is important too so I don't over do it and just quit

m_jel don't get me wrong, it'll work, but, for the same effort you put in, if you do exercises that challenge stability at the same time, you'll get double the benefit

I know it is misinformation because it's basically what I'm taking in school (Kinesiology) and in my training class the lecture today was all about stretching. I'll go over the class and the slides and let you guys know what's good for what prior to working out and post-workout. Not sure when I'll get around to it, but within the next week probably. Until then, dynamic stretching pre-training, and light static stretching post-training

15 miles on a bike
200 reps on the body by jake
15 minutes on the ab roller
10 minutes on the punching bag (suspended 25lb)
12 of each bench press, knee bends and curles @ 50lbs
by knee bends do you mean hamstring curls? if you do, do some box jumps or squats instead. It'll be a ton better for you. Also, don't bother with the ab roller. Instead balance on a swiss ball with your feet on the wall and knees at 90*. Do 15 straight up, 15 towards each knee, and then slowly lift each foot and replace it 15 times each
