I’m thinking about doing workouts consisting of ISO’s and OI’s. This is because generally I lack strength, and I haven’t done anything but up and down (PIM) reps in any lift in a long, long while.
What do you think?
This would address my need for absolute strength, would bring a new type of training stimulus, and prepare me for future implements of Neuro-Dynamics work.
This is all still in the general preparatory stage.[/quote]
If you are in a GPP stage (and following inno-sport), then you should not be addressing absolute strength. A GPP stage will address speed and strength endurance. Also, OI’s will probably not do much (directly) for absolute strength because of the light weight you will have to use initially to learn the correct technique.
If you truly want to do GPP and build a base for improved sport performance, I would alternate strength endurance and speed endurance sessions. You may be doing this, but it is not apparent from your post. The ISOs and OIs will be fine for the strength endurance session. I would perform exercises like ISO subscap pullups (top position), ISO bench in the stretch/bottom position, and other exercises that are somewhat prehab/rehab in nature. Use this time to treat any previous injury and work to prevent future injury. I would then perform line hops, speed hops, sprints, etc. for the speed endurance session.
