I would like to start doing some strength training (at home, using some kettlebells, dumbbells and body weight). The plan is to do two sessions a week (40 to 50 minutes each). Yet, I don’t know what would be the optimal way to incorporate those strength sessions into my current SSB mid-volume training calendar (later moving to build and specialty). As you know, the typical mid-volume week is 3 “difficult” workouts on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, one “moderate” workout on Sundays and one “easy” workout on Wednesdays (usually Pettit).
To get optimal results from the strength sessions and not get overtrained or have tired legs or the like, when do you think I should add the strength sessions? I usually do the bike sessions in the mornings so I was thinking to do the strength sessions in the afternoons (around 6pm or so). But on which days I should add the strength sessions? Perhaps Thursdays (so I have full recovery on Fridays, which is a rest day) and Sundays (to also recover on Mondays, which is also a rest day)?
Any tips or suggestions are more than welcomed! Thanks.
