About Lift Strong Run Fast
When I first came up with the Lift Strong Run Fast “LSRF” training program, I had studied and participated in many different fitness regimens. A lot of them were good but they seem to focus too much on one area of fitness e.g. “strength, endurance, flexibility” Although I did see results in those particular areas, the other areas of my fitness struggled to keep up. I wanted a training program that would give me the best of all aspects of fitness. One that would make me extremely strong, but not put unnecessary bulk on. A program that would help me produce outstanding power, yet keep me flexible and free of joint pain. I wanted an all in one, GENERAL FITNESS program. After talking to many well respected fitness professionals, I decided to come up with my own training system. A regimen that would provide training for all 10 general physical skill of fitness. This is how the Lift Strong Run Fast training program was developed.
I like to change things up a lot therefore I knew the old westernized style “Western Periodization” would not work well for me. I adopted the Russian Conjugate style of training and have been getting stronger and faster ever since. I developed the LSRF Ranking System that brings a person from a beginner level, to intermediate, to advanced, and finally elite. Once you are able to successfully meet the standard in each category, you will see improvements not only in your fitness, but your health as well. Most importantly, I came up with my own 10 disciplines that I follow in everyday life that help me get to where I’m at. These skills will not only help you improve in the gym, but outside the gym as well, in that other important thing, life.
This is what our training schedule looks like:
|Monday||Repetition/ Dynamic Effort Lower+ Met Con|
|Tuesday||Max Effort Upper/Method of Heavy Effort|
|Thursday||Repetition/ Dynamic Effort Upper+ Met Con|
|Friday||Max Effort Lower/Method of Heavy Effort|
On the LSRF Training system, you will have 48 hours of recovery between each Upper and Lower training sessions. You will also get at least 72 hours of recovery between your max effort workouts. On Wednesday and Saturday you will be doing strictly conditioning work. Wednesdays are more dedicated towards interval work while Saturdays are dedicated towards long slow distance “LSD” or track work. You also have the option to rest on these two days but on Sunday you will be completely off.
