This is the E-mail I've sent to Louie Simmons and also want to know your ideas.
Just finished the book that you gifted me yesterday and about explosive strength.
I've learned a lot of stuff that I didn't know. Great exercises and info.
But I can't find the answer of my question because there is not a big part that you told about programming(implementing) the training. Or I'm missing something.
I would love to use all of the things that you told in your book but there is a problem, I must sprint because I'm a sprinter. The problem is I don't know how much impact those dynamic effort and plyometrics(as I know 7-14 days rest needed for full recovery, of course according to volume and intensity) have.
Let me tell you about my question again. I'm not strong enough. Here is the some numbers.
Regular Deep Squat 300lbs
Romanian Deadlift 350lbs
52" Box Jump(with getting speed)
I know I must get stronger, this is requirement. And I must sprint this is also requirement. Here is the my weekly scheme again(just as example):
Monday - Max Effort Lower
Tuesday - Max Effort Upper
Wednesday - Active Rest (tempo work, technique work or speed drills)
Thursday - Short Sprints
Friday - Active Rest Again
Saturday - Long Sprints for Speed Endurance or Lactic Acid Tolerance
Sunday - Full Rest
The questions are:
1) Is that OK to do dynamic effort work with max effort work in same day?
2) Is that OK to do dynamic effort work with short sprinting in same day, previous or next day? If It is OK, what about repetition work after dynamic work? (I will be feeling DOMS next day, probably..)
3) What do you think about Hard-Easy-Hard-Easy-Hard-Easy... scheme?
Actually this is scheme for until 400m race of this winter. I'm normally 100m and 200m sprinter but have lack of endurance and GPP. So this is why I train like a 400m sprinter(kind a preparoty training). After the ondoor season I will cut lactic acid tolerance work and I will be able to put dynamic effort method or short sprints, instead.
Actually there is a lot of thing that I must implement with my current scheme but maybe I'm too much afraid of overtraining? Actually there is a lot of things to ask but these are enough for now.
Here is the my training diary of last 2.5 months. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UYkU0hmM9KOb7UlzOgpofuoNhlakeFmtT2sqx4Jfmjw/edit?usp=sharing
(And yes I must change something about my max effort trainings to there is a lot of things to learn. Looks like I must take care of total lifts, volume and intensity for max effort work more. I need to do some research on this.)
Thanks for everything.
