Ok so 3 things I’m going to lay out before the actual question to limit the “internet experts” from taking this away from the legitimate people helping me on the issue
1)If you are just some guy who knows a guy who knows a guy, who told you this, and not an actual strength athlete or a boxer who’s antiquated coach told you weight training is bad, and you want to enlighten or “educate” me, just stop because chances are your wrong.
2)This is not meant for Hypertrophy and no 8-12 reps is not what I’m doing
3)Refer to 1 because I’m sure people are going to ignore it.
Ok so I do MMA and Muay Thai, and am currently fleshing out my new weight training program to do away with strength/speed cycles. So the question is this, is there any reason not to mix the two cycles; doing sets for speed strength, (Using 55%-65% of your 1RM) and doing sets for absolute strength (5 x 5 of 85% of your 1rm), that is to say if you do 2 sets of the desired movement for neuro-muscular and tendon training and the 5 for strength. Will they interfer with each other or will they build off each other ?
