Summer training

Hi everyone, i would first just like to say that this site is awesome!! so much great information and people willing to help. After finding this site while searching for tips on google i have been reading alot of the information on the site and i have to say some of it is pretty inspiring and motivational.

So heres my situation....im 17, just finished my exams and have a fair bit of time on my hands so i thought i'd do something usefull with my time which will be to work out.

I'm 5'11 and 9stone so im pretty skinny really and would like to put on a bit of extra muscle. After reading some of the articles i have already put in place changes to my diet.

I play basketball and football at a fairly high standard and one of my key attributes is speed, if i start lifting lots of weights i was wondering will i lose my pace??

Also what do you think about me incorporating sprints into a training programme?(maybe every 3 days) will i see an increase in muscle from this or will i lose weight?

thanks in advance

Bobby

    Indeed, some great members here.

    Not at all, quite the opposite, the right kind of training will increase your speed and also your vertical jump for b-ball.

    Also what do you think about me incorporating sprints into a training programme?(maybe every 3 days) will i see an increase in muscle from this or will i lose weight?

    Do you mean some form of HIIT? Definately, though make sure you leave enough time for recovery and have a diet to sustain your training.

    Unaffiliated.
