Hey guys and galls,
Lately energy system work has caught my attention.
I've been reading Joel Jamieson, as far as I understood quite a knowledgable man in the conditioning realm, and he got me quite crossed.(Is that from a song?)
Has anyone tried some of his programs/protocols and how do you feel about them?
His protocols seem so easy. This is a summary of what he told on Breaking Muscle:
Anaerobic Lactic system: 30-40 s. work, 1-4 minutes rest, 2-5 sets, 1-2 series
Anaerobic Alactic system: 3-6 s. work, 60-120 s. rest,10-20 sets,explosive work
Aerobic system:method 1:HR 130-150, 30-90 minutes
method 2:8-10 s. work, 60 s rest,8-16 sets, moderate intensity
method 3:5-6 s. work,60 s rest,mod./high volume,high resistance
Do you feel this kind of protocols will be effective, or should conditioning be harder? This kind of ease makes me sceptic.
I feel like conditioning should be about pushing yourself hard for a few rounds, hold back the puke and call it a day.
