Probably nothing terribly new here. You cannot be a powerlifter and a marathon runner, or at least not good at both.
Found this interesting though:
For moderator variables, resistance training concurrently with running, but not cycling, resulted in significant decrements in both hypertrophy and strength.
So running sucks compared to cycling in this study.
- There is a negative correlation between the frequency/duration of endurance training and strength/power
- The type of endurance training matters, as running lead to larger decreases in strength/power when compared to cycling
- In general, athletes should avoid long bouts of endurance training (greater than 20 min) as well as high frequencies (more than 2x/week)
- Concurrent training vs only resistance or only endurance resulted in highest fat loss
- Strength/power athletes should focus on high intensity endurance training
