Its easy to talk about our strengths and focus on that and not our weakness's
For example i was shit at sprints and interval training but did alot of long distance, took me a while to accept i was doing things wrong and running 6 -8 miles a day wasnt helping me. So changed it up with intervals and not looked back since. I also couldnt do more than 5 chin ups, decided they wern't that important as i could do loads of push ups. Once again realised i was wrong, i can now knock out 25 chin ups.
Anyway blabbing now .. work on your weak points and you will get all round fitness
interval training, yes that just sounds like a good idea.. can you give me any example of how you do it? like 100m sprint 50m jog 25 m walk and repeat?
