Hello, guys. I have a question that I have been thinking about and don’t really know the answer to. Ok, let’s just say that someone needed to work on all three types of strength for his vertical jump (Maximal,Rate of force development, and reactive(plyometric)strength).
Which one the these methods would help him the most in 12 weeks (just an alotted time period that I have chosen.)???
1st choice: a 4 week cycle of Maximal strength building, followed by a 4 week cycle of RFD strength building, followed by a 4 week cycle of Plyos. And during each cycle you would workout 2 times per week.(Mon and Fri)
2nd choice: three 4 week cycles of doing Maximal strength on Monday, RFD work on Wednesday, and Plyos on Friday.
3rd choice: three 4 week cycles of doing a workout with all three combined on Mondays and Fridays. (Example: 2 max strength exercises, 2 RFD exercises and 2 plyos exercises on Mondays and the same for Fridays)
See, my problem is that technically you will be working all three strengths either way, but which one would give you the most gains???
Thanks again guys.
