comment Should I wear running shoes to go running if I'm training for sports
Chris is right youll see MUCH better gains in soccer performance with interval training than with long-distance running. Still get the shoes though!

comment Should I wear running shoes to go running if I'm training for sports
@stickman I play football (soccer) every week as well as running (up to 20 miles) and I know what you mean - its a completely different set of movements and stresses though. Running is not like soccer in that the movement is repeated over and over. It's still well worth buying the proper shoes for each sport because you WILL get injured. I think a big factor is that football is often played on a soft surface - running is done on pavements/roads etc.

comment What is the correct form for a deadlift?
Hi @priktop, thanks for the help! I have been practicing and got up to 3 reps of 95kg (bodyweight 70kg). I'm happy with my form now and it feels good but I always end up with massive red bruises all the way up my shins... is that expected?

Buy some, but make you sure you get them fitted by a professional in a specialist running shop. I'd also say, don't go for this season's brand new shiny shoes that cost £150. The cheapo ones should be just as good.

comment Effect of squat and dead lift on long distance running
If you were executing those exercises to train max strength or power (eg. higher weight, low-mid reps, moderate to full recovery) they are only going to have marginally positive affects on your distance running ability but that could be offset by adding more muscle weight that will make you a less efficient runner. Not quite - training with very few reps at a high intensity will increase your strength (myofibrilar) without dramatically increasing mass. What he should avoid is sets in the 10-14 rep range and aim instead for ~2 reps at close to his 1 rep max.

comment Do raw eggs contain protein inhibitors
I never cook my eggs for that long.... 15 minutes would be totally overdone. Are you talking about boiling, frying or what?

comment Should I run before or after the workout
So you're saying that its best to properly warm up beforehand then do the main cardio after?
