    Concentric Training


    My question is how often can you do it. I'm talking about sled pushes/pulls, big tire flips, sledgehammer work stuff like that right now I do it once a week and I find it really helps the recovery process after a heavy leg day. Is it possible to train your legs eccentrically once a week and then concentrically 3x a week without overtraining or is that pushing it? And when I say concentric I'm talking about like 9 sets total for the day cause heavy prowler pushes will make you lose your lunch.

    I wouldn't call it concentric training; it's conditioning and, depending on your conditioning, can be done on a frequently since it doesn't have much impact on the CNS.
