I think it can work. Just keep an eye on the shoulders and elbows and recovery.I used IC for 6 weeks leading up to a hiking trip, in addition to running and training hikes. It worked well, had to bail on the trip for unrelated reasons, but felt strong throughout, even when carrying two bags for a brief portion. For my next training block I'm thinking of training IC twice per week, with some weighted pullups beforehand. I know there's an option to use pull ups as part of the circuit, but I like them so much I want to make them of as high quality as possible. Twice a week I'm also planning on doing 20kg snatches and dips, then running twice per week. Does this sound ok, or maybe too much volume with the dips?
Thanks in advance
