Some people say that distance running can interfere with explosive ability. i am mostly interested in sports besides oly lifting, but i was wondering if you feel that running can interfere with your athletes explosiveness?

sprinting short distances or hill running will not interfere with the explosiveness of athletes, but long distance running will in my opinion. i have seen it happen over and over again.

Coach,

So what do you feel is long distance running? How about 5 to ten mile runs, is that interfering??
