Read my post and stop interpretting what you want to hear. I said there never would have been a major layoff in the first place. I never said I would have worked them when they were stale. Unless the athlete has a neck amputation or some other catastrophic injury the load NEVER has to be eliminated. I’ve likewise never said that I have the only “way to Rome”….in fact I frequently get on ET and talk about how intensive tempo based programs are clearly effective even though they are the polar opposite from my speed-power based setups. I’ll say similar things about other effective but contrary programs.
My contention is when someone makes claims and doesn’t back them up even when repeatedly asked to do so or when people get on here and talk down to others.
