I prefer long distance running, but I try to mix in upper-body exercises to compensate for long work days spent behind a desk working as a software architect.

My current weekly training cycle has no particular goals yet, other than improving my overall strength, endurance and fitness.

comment Running shoes vs barefoot: which is better for squat and dead lift?
I don't think I could bring myself to wear dress shoes at the gym, but bare feet seems to work great for me.

That's a funny analogy :-) Is the average gym goer really that terrible? It seems to me most of the free weight lifters appear to know what they are doing...

sounds reasonable. I did my weight lifting routine yesterday bare feet and it felt great. The biggest change seemed to be a significantly increased sense of my center of balance. Bare feet seems to be the way to go for me.

comment Effect of squat and dead lift on long distance running
I'm not doing squats and dead lift to improve my running, but rather to diversify my exercise routine. I was mostly curious to see if squat and dead lift could have a significant negative impact on running. In addition to squat and dead lift I also do barbell rows, lat pull, bench press and military press on the days where I train with weights. For now, I am aiming for overall fitness, so I plan to stick with lower weight, higher reps, less recovery.

I run three times a week. I added swimming and weight exercises for diversity.
