lol no, she just had an extremely aggressive goal and so she got on the most aggressive program possible, which is a modified PSMF essentially.

I think she started at like 5'0 135 and wants to get down to like 100 by the end of July, which she's on track to do.

No shit. I was all foo.gif when she said that to me.

Tho to be fair I meant she lived a mile from work, so it's a mile there and a mile back, not a mile total. Not that it really matters.

Oh no, it's not like anybody living in any slightly large metropolitan area has ever walked a mile one way before! Was that actually her justification to you? Super lols worthy if so.

I've recently taken up doing sprints (10x 100m with 2min rest between.) I'm obviously feeling it in my quads and calfs but I had two questions for you guys: 1) I read a few places that sprinting is also a good core/ abs workout, but I don't have any soreness there. Anyone have experience with sprinting working abs out? 2) After good cardio (sprints or steps) I'm usually pretty sore all over, but I often go directly to the gym and lift for 30ish minutes. As long as I get protein after lifting, this is okay right? I'm not doing any damage?
post #17696 of 46387
how I wonder what actual lifting can even be done directly after a good sprinting session

1. I don't think sprinting will ever make your abs sore. That being said, you shouldn't measure efficacy by soreness. Sprinting/stairs are certainly useful, and will benefit the core, but are not going to lead to soreness.

 

2. I'd reverse the order here. It's usually best to do strength work first, then end with sprints.

1. why worry about sprints hitting your core if you are going to lift?

2. depends on what your goals are obv but i would lift then sprint, and no you won't break anything

Your core will get worked out in keeping your body upright, so make sure you're running without leaning forward and stand upright. Keeping that tense while sprinting will work your abs, but you won't feel sore from it.
