    Re: Running and leg atrophy

    the thing you want to worry about is overtraining your legs. i used to do a windsprint 1.7miles on the treadmill on full blast then run into the shower and take a cold shower to cool down. then do weight training. it really beat my body down and i was still in my 20's. today 20 years later no way can i do that.

    also it depends on how much effort you are putting into that 1-2 miles. is it just a tempo run or a slow job? or it is balls to the wall sprinting?

    my advice is don't run the day of or the day before leg day at the very least

    that is a 10 minute mile should everyone shoudl be able to do in their sleep so it won't be a big deal man

    i do wind sprints where i do 1.7 miles in about 11-12 minutes where the treadmill is on full blast. afterwards i feel like i am going to puke i get so hot

    I always wondered if doing it your way was better for muscle retention considering slower paced distance runners have twigs for legs while sprinters are jacked.

    The downside of being better than everyone else, is that people tend to assume you're pretentious.

    You should run at least 1 mile per week while building mass.
