A lot of people seem to be avoiding this:
Power is best developed at the low rep ranges. I can use workouts like this to get my power from 7-10.
This, however, won’t get me all that much better at producing power over a longer period of time (conditioning to a specific fitness requirement). I can use workouts with higher repetition ranges to effectively lengthen the amount of time that I can consistently display the power that I built by using lower rep ranges.
Many sports that are still anaerobic/power based require repeated bouts of extended effort at a high power output.
And those sports are better served by doing something they’re not going to hurt themselves doing. Front/Zercher squats seem to make more sense than deadlifts or cleans, a step even better could be the bike. Repeat sprints are a good choice if you’re not like a lineman or sumo wrestler in weight. Hell even play your sport if it makes sense. Just don’t damage your movement pattern of the most important exercises for you to gain your strength and power.
Most athletes have no use for using shitty form in repeat bouts of “power exercises”[/quote]
Front squats are not a power move, IMO. Better for absolute strength/structural adaptations.
Jumps, oly lifts, etc. are different.
All lifts take technique. Oly lifts take a higher degree of coordination. Will you get tired towards the end of your set? Yes. Is this where you’re perfecting your form/really developing your maximal power? No.
Sports, by no coincidence, also demand coordination/technique when you’re tired.
Yes, playing your sport will improve your endurance for it. It’ll also develop your strength. But this doesn’t mean we should give up on GPP all together, there is obviously something to it.
