For those who are knowledgable on DB Hammer's system, I have a few questions.
1) strength-speed work is to be done at up to 20% above peak power output. From what I understand, peak power is always developed between 51% and 74% of AW max. I assume that the neuro-magnitude test outlined in TSB was designed to let an athlete know where he develops peak power.
How, then, can you train at percentages higher than your REA max?
2)ADA and FDA work is to be done with soft landings to ensure that the body is not forced to handle more than it can. It seems to me that soft landings would require lengthy braking phases.
Referencing the neuro-magnitude test once again, I believe you're only allowed a braking phase of about 2 inches for it to count as a good lift. How do I accomplish the goal of soft landings without lengthy braking phases or using baby weights?
3) Dur-1 work is the most difficult part of training AREG. I have a hard time maxing every time I train dur-1. Could I, perhaps, work with the same initial for two or three dur-1 workouts before trying for a new max? Any help would be appreciated.
Not to be a jerk, but I don't feel like reading post after post about how DB doesn't really have a facility in Germany, who has he coached, is he a real person, is he actually Jay Schroeder, his book is too difficult to understand, etc.
If you use his system with success, please help me out. If you don't use his system, please don't post.
