hi guys, im fairly new to this website & just thought i’d ask a question I think a lot of people are asking…
is db’s complications of methods really needed?
I recently brought the book & although im realised (after a few reads) that it IS alot easier than it seems at first, cant this be acheived through a intergration of methods though???
say for instance, most people go from one cycle to another realising their weaknesses & bring up a weakness through observation. I.e. snatch 75% of c&j & back squat 150% of c&j = lacking in speed & or technique.
As for the speed squat & such, timed squats with varying % can achieve whats he’s perscribing anyway (for absorbtion of power anyway)??
I like the whole idea & have read many things on the web but I feel it gets slated to much by big names (whereas respected coaches usually never slate other coaches for obvious reasons)
The only reason im so inquistive (like the rest of us striving wannabe athletes) is that I dont want to be left behind!
I recently read lyn mcdonald trashing his work & it made me think, can a program like power ascending/descending cover pretty much all bases? (assuming depth jump height is right, form is correct on lifts, speed of excution etc.) I know nuttal meantioned you cant do duration & rate together as it is too much on the CNS but croxdale & many others advocate complex training so unless you wana delve into pubmed who are you supposed to believe?I really dont wana jump into something like this where it seems to take so long to ‘tweak’ & figure the drop offs when once you know how much volume you can get by on ‘normal’ methods your gaining anyway. I think majority of informed trainers know how to work with overreaching/overtraining & since there are so many ways of monitering O.T. (BPM,vertical jump, reaction time, sleep/eating habits etc. etc.) is it really worth it for a up & coming sprinter/athlete?
