So you’re telling me that my 152lb high school junior that runs 11.6 and has a max squat of 185 will find sprinting nirvana if he LOADS up the bar with 95 lbs and squats really, really fast? It appears that a variety of speeds work best which implies heavier, slower squats can work. It just one of many points on the F/V curve that one can visit during the year.
No. I never specifically stated squats. I said work the neuromuscular system. That includes the Oly’s, squats, lunges, bench press, overhead throws, plyos, etc. Please re-read the post.[/quote]
I just picked one exercise at random and made up a fictional athlete to illustrate a point. When you’re dealing with a population that, for the most part, is genetically gifted at activities to the left of the F/V curve, doesn’t it become redundant to focus on lighter loads moved at fast speeds?
How, upon entering a weightroom, can I proceed to NOT work the neuromuscular system?
