If you want some science check out “Special Strength Training Manual for Coaches” by Yuri Verkhoshansky. He’s a Soviet era track coach who “invented” plyometrics.
Anyway, in this book he briefly summarizes 50 years of Russian studies, explaining why he like to use lots of different training methods and the Conjugate System.
These dudes spent years playing around with concentric, eccentric and isometric training. Lifting fast and lifting slow, lifting heavy vs lifting light. What effects it had on strength, mass or vertical jump, etc, etc.
One time they took several groups of lifters. Some did isometrics, some did eccentric focused lifting and some used a concentric focus. Then they charted the gains these groups made in Anterior muscles, posterior muscles and legs. I can’t remember all the results exactly, but I think back muscles did best lowering, and abs did best isometrically.
Another study compared squaring fast vs slow and slow guys got stronger, but worse at jumping. And fast guys didn’t get much bigger, but got better at vertical jump.
The book goes on and on like this. Then Verkhoshansky talks about what types of training and methods they felt worked best for individual sports.
Pretty nerdy stuff, but pretty cool if that’s what you’re into.
There is a free pdf available, but you’re 100% sure to get attacked by Russian cyber punks if you open it.
Closer to home, you should ask Thibadeau. I’m sure he’s got some info on this topic.
