GS training is realy important, but I sometimes wonder where it has it’s place when we call such training as a “recovery” workouts during specific training periods for higher level power athletes in track and field. Let’s say athlete does two intensive workouts in a row, first could be sprints/weights and second one “special endurance”, so for many third session would be workout supposed to promote recovery wich we call GS training. In my opinion, in this case nor low intensity plyos, nor tempo, nor any resistance training would help to recover faster. Of course upper body work could be done. But my point is that in many cases better recovery is rest or doing another non-impact activity like some swimming to let heart pumping and blood flowing. Don’t you think that easy days on the track aren’t always helping to recover faster before another quality workout?
