Hoping some one can help........
I have been lifting weights for 16 years, and I just turned 31.
Now, I am trying to get or remain tone, without putting on to much muscle.
I have a med/high metabolism......my workout sched consists of...........
TUE-cardio (AM basketball)
FRI-cardio (AM basketball), as I have adapted my workout schedule with my work shcedule
My GOAL: is to increase my endurance and be able to run circles around the guys I play basketball with as well as
lose wieght and maintain mucscle.
My PROBLEM: calf muscles start to tighten up even after repititive stretching, causing me not to go 100% on the treadmill.
Is it better to go longer on a treadmill at lower speeds, or a higher intensity for a short period of time?
