    Hi All. I want to add in some Hiit in to my training, specifically I want to perform hill sprints. I did these a few summers back and loved how it made me feel and look. My performance was through the roof in all aspects. My main purpose for wanting to do hill sprints is to build a good gas tank and also for some fat loss. Now I am in my 40s I want to focus on progressing my log book doing some crazy high rep leg stuff squats, deadlifts and leg press etc. My question is regarding where to perform my hill sprints in my split to still allow recovery from my resistance training and what format is best I.e a 40 yard all out effort followed by a rest period that allows my breathing to return to normal ready for another too effort or sprints where the only rest is the walk down the hill. I currently follow push,pull, rest, legs, rest repeat. Thanks

    Yes Joe! This reply is great and gives me everything I needed to know and more so thank you. I also picked up that you have a set leg day such as every Wednesday. I feel like this is is also what I need to do now in my later meat head days. This will also help with where I can put my sprints in and any other cardio I want to do. It has taken me a long time to get my head around not being the biggest strongest mother in the gym anymore. Even now I sometimes think imagine what I would be like with one more push. Anyway, seeing how you present yourself in your vids helps me stay grounded and not be selfish to my family with this lifestyle. I’ve lost 22lbs since getting the app in December. Roll on the hill sprints and 25 rep squats, having a great dad bod and feeling great. Cheers
