Thread: Speed Training

I wanted to get everyone's opinion of speed training for cardio - running sprints, etc as opposed to regular treadmill or elliptical trainer for cardio.
I used to do a lot when I was playing basketball, but I stopped a while ago. I prefer doing my cardio this way...plus I always felt like I was able to get some more cuts in my quads by doing this...any opinions?

Well, for offseason I would use a slightly altered wsb split for weight training, and then use 2 off weight training days for sprints/plyometrics, and one day completely off.
During the season or when the season is close approaching and there is an emphasis on cardio, I'd drop the weight training down to one day a week just to help keep up strength. Probably something along the lines of a typical DE squat day.

I'm not playing competitively anymore. I'm just thinking about running sprints for cardio a couple days a week - as of now, i'm only playing ball a couple days a week for fun...
my question was more geared to the pros/cons of this type of training on bodybuilding
