Default Interval training for someone on a PL split

I am doing a powerlifting split (Madcow) and job 3 times a week. I don't particularly like it and would like to come up with some sprint intervals. The question is: How long should these sprints be and how many sets/days per week? I also intend on going and down the stairs, possibly with a bag filled with stuff on my back. Maybe even do interval training by running up a few flights before resting.

I have no issues with frequency as aside from training, I am either sat on my ass at work or lying in bed!

Find a hill and run some sprints. Your body will tell you when you're done.

Hill sprints are a great option, also some kind of sled drags. I made a ghetto sled with a tire and a cargo strap works great. I think variety is key with sprints. I like to vary it pretty much every time I do them.

Sometimes a hill, sometimes flat, sometimes drags. I also vary the distance and the amount. If I am feeling sore I do just enough to get loose and do some conditioning. I usually do my sprints from 30-40 yards and do about 10 of them. I think 400 yards is a pretty good amount to stay around. This will help with conditioning and not hurt your recovery at all.

whatever you decide to do, make it highest intensity possible, rest for an appropriate amount of time, then repeat. Your body will tell you when you are done. Sprints are a favorite of mine, i can normally wear myself out in less than 10 minutes.

I tried 2 types of it:-

1. Had a heartrate monitor, and set a heartrate of recovery, say 140bpm. So I sprint up a hill, then start the time, and time how long it takes to get back down to 140bpm, as soon as I hit 140bpm I run again and write down recovery time. I like this way because it allows you to see your progression in recovery. This one takes longer and I dont think is as intense.

2. Run up a hill, and time 45 seconds, or a minute, or whatever you need. Then after that time run again. This option I used 45 seconds and I just made it to 10 minutes.

Leicester is as flat as a pancake it seems, especially as I live almost in the city centre. The wife has lived here for years and knows of no hills. The local park is a great place for flat sprints though and that is where I do my normal jogging. I'm getting a common theme here: run until you are done

When I'm at home I use beach sprints, run 2 breakwaters walk 2 for up to 10 sprints. Half of my family live in Leicester and it's not the hilliest place, I'm yet to find a hill in Manchester city centre.

I had a great flow on my offdays this summer, GPP / conditioning looked like this:

jog /walk / sprints alternating for 10-20mins (on some days, just 10x40-50m sprints with a break inbetween)

Box jumps 5-10 sets of 5-10

Tire flips for high reps with mini tire (150kg) 1-3 sets of 10-20 flips, as fast as possible

Alternated between this and it was good for recovery and endurance.
