After a periode of strength training we will see increase in type 11a fibres. Deconditiong from the strength training will change the fibre composition from 11a to 11b.
It doesnt make it irrelevant that 90 % 1RM lifting with high relativ contraction speed recruts more fibre 11b. But it sure those make -80% 1RM lifting relevant with proper managment of deconditioning.
now i will like to see the reference of 90% 1RM fibre recruitment pattern in the high bar squat. I heard Poliquin talk about it in a seminar but i never found a reference.
Less talk and more references?
I’m so glad you posted this!
Neither study supports anything you said or Newman said–they are actually quite tangent to it. Their description of high force isn’t even >90% of 1RM, but I’m sure you actually took the 2 minutes to read that beyond that abstract.
Good luck spending 3 months deconditioning (ie not training as per the study) and getting your magical off-shoot that I am sure will have a great impact on your performance. Try not sprinting or lifting for 3 months before a meet and see how it goes. Too bad the situation used in that study has essentially no relevance for this discussion.
