How do I combine a lot of running, push-ups and sit-ups (for military) with strength training? Should I remove some exercises from my strength training? For example, with all of push-ups I am going to be doing should I still do bench press, and with all the running I am going to be doing should I still squat? Or would trying to get as strong as possible in the big 4 help me get through military basic easier?

Steve, been using higher reps (8 reps minimum, usually 10+) on all row variations for well over a year. Do you think I am leaving something on the table concerning back strength/mass by not going heavier for lower reps, at least occasionally?

Hello Steve,

first some information about me:

22 years old
186cm tall
84 kg @ 10-12% bf
Squat 5rm 130kg
Paused Bench and Row 8rm 85kg
Deadlift 5rm 150kg
Goal: PowerBuilding

I am currently on this program: /muscleandbrawn.com/forum/workouts/8870-muscle-brawn-fullbody-workout.html?routestring=workouts/8870-muscle-brawn-fullbody-workout.html and was wondering when to do paused bench and when to do touch and go?
I am currently doing all my bench and military presses with about a 1 sec pause.

What could i improve?

Thank You for everything!
