I did this training for about seven weeks in june&juli; -04.I peaked in week 5&6 with 2x7.96 and some big fouls…After that 2 weeks of SPP with more volume and some max.strength.After that 2 week comp.period with a peak week 2 with 800w.
Max.strength in squat went down.Hard to say how much because I only did 2 easy deep squat sessions during june-july-august.I really didn’t think about it because on the track everything developed. (comp.results,bounding and I felt faster and faster on the runway)
A normal squat session in comp.period was single leg quarter squat 3x(3+3)x135kg
or double leg quarter squat 3x4x180-200kg (about 60%).Always fast down and fast up.
In the snatch or power clean I did heavy doubles or singles almost every week and I managed 145kg in the clean everytime tested in May-August.
I actually was a full time jumper at this time but I couldn’t handle anymore volume at
high intensities than this if I wanted to get better.In gpp with submaximal intensities
I trained 3-5 hours every trainingday often splitted into two sessions with no problems.
The set up in gpp was 3 hard days followed by an active recovery day followed by a rest day (3+1+1).
I have always been crap with higher volumes at high intensities.Especially max.speed.
Sometimes I felt the best method to get faster was not to sprint…
