I'm not saying it's impossible, but it's very, very difficult to do.
I think it has more to do with the type of running or cardio your doing. Football players have been doing it for decades. Sprinting and lifting. Same pretty much with 400m sprinters, they lift heavy as shit and sprint. I've never seen a jacked cross country runner, marathoner or soccer player so it might have something to do with the amount of cardio and perceived intensity of it.
Just started getting back into 531 after a layoff. Went through the motions for the last two weeks as I'm trying to get the diet dialed in. I refuse to count calories so I'm trying to make smart food choices. Tested deadlift max last night and pulled 465 for a double, probably could have squeezed out two more but I'm not in rush. Still need to test max on bench and overhead press. Been using the Fat Grips on bench and will try them on OHP tomorrow since they cause no shoulder pain.
