I'm going to post my email for a copy of the Bllitz program. Please, this is my work email so no wierd stuff.

kjones@ci.jackson.wy.us

Thank you

It should be in your email, Riflecop. I am posting this so you do not get flooded with multiple copies. I was just off line a few hours... All, it is handled.

FYI.. The blitz stickey pretty much has the basic info to get you started...

In response to the running questions, I run 3 days a week and Blitz 3 days resting on the 7th (I very this day to mix it up)

I started the Blitz program at the end of December, did not do as regularly as I like - I am now keeping a consistent schedule, and started running 2.28.10.

My first impression was wow, I could run half a mile without stopping where before I couldn't run 50ft without getting winded lol (slight exaggeration)

As for running I have heard many different methods for me I just run up a big hill near my house for 2 miles (hill is .5) with out stop on a pace I can maintain then increase that pace. In the 2+ weeks I have been doing this my 2 mile went from ~22min40sec to 18min.

My running goal is 13min to ace the APFT and increase my endurance which I have noticed the running + Bltiz has improved greatly.

Thanks Civil for the input.
Good luck on your upcoming pft.

Sincerely,

I am working on lowering my 2 mile run time. I will be starting the Blitz workout tomorrow. My question is where do you position your run days around the blitz 3 workout days per week? Or are you not running while on the program?
I am not a strong runner and I am worried about taking running completely out of the schedule. I am still working on conditioning the small muscles of the lower leg. The vertical muscle that runs just outside of the shin bone is still tightening up when I get fatigued.
Anyone have ideas while Blitzz is out this month? I want to smoke the running section at the end of April.

Sincerely,

The Muscles you speak of are used to lift your foot from the floor, so when running they act to "soften the impact of each stride and not run flat footed. They're antagonist to your calves and get worked on your forward roll and then push off of your foot.
You can blitz those buy using your toes to pull a resistance up or toward your head. That exercise should have a starting position with the leg extended and the toes pointed away.
also as your legs strengthen during running the tendon and facia of that muscle get inflamed and cause schin splints. To prevent schin splints you should do prerunburns of those muscles by doing isometric upward pulls with easc foot against the heel of the other foot. Dave

Roger that. I have a band so I will start doing the exercise immediately.

Thank you for the response. And, I love the workout.

Shrugs 180 84 136 138 137 144

Notice how quick your progression is. Probably one more day and you'll be bumping the weights again...It's fast when you reach this point.

What's a half-squat? Does it have any benefits over a full squat? On a half-squat, how do you ensure identical form on each rep without the "bounce" out of the hole that occurs during a full squat?
