Taking recent threads into account, GPP for the senior athletes with decent training age need only consist of greater volume of extensive tempo than usual, intensive tempo for those who believe in it, greater volume of reps in the gym and the odd speed session. Any muscle inbalance, weak technique etc. can also be worked on. And body weight circuits are unecessary unless unable to run. Right???
Pretty much. And the focus with the weights would be to lay a foundation and get your tendons and joints prepared for heavier weight lifting.
When I am unable to run I would like to perform circuits, but I am wondering whether to perform each set to the burn, or do more sets were each set stops before the burn. I am also thinking that it is best to use a moderate pace for each rep rather than go as fast as possible. This way lactic won’t set in as quick - like tempo.
