Sprinting on CAD Program


Hello Christian, how much sprinting did you guys do with the CAD program? I see by week 3 and 7 the volume was pretty high for most of the exercises.


The CAD program is basically a form of complex training (read more about complexes in my Training lab). I've used this form of training with many different kind of athletes, some requiring a lot of sprinting/speed some who didn't.

Football players normally sprinted (real speed work) twice a week plus one or two days of form running.


Thanks, I was confused - I thought Pascal did a CAD program which included straight sets with rest between sets and exercises - ex: depth jumps 3x5 then move on to jump squats 3x10 etc. I didn't know Pascal did Bulgarian complexes which are more like circuits.
