Mike, I'm italian..and never ever heard this name…and also it is not an italian name!
Do you have other reference?
This was an apparently failed attempt at mocking the messed up instance of translation that Mort mentioned (re: L. Deloucha instead of J. Deloach).
I want to read the book, but italian training manuals and pubblications are full of eastern tables and correlations…and we all know that we suck at sprinting..also jumping not so great…no throws except some hammer years ago..
I don't think that the tables and charts are much more than interesting. If you don't know what to do with the information, including what to disregard, then they can do more harm than good.
I tend to trust more Pfaff than Bondarchuck about sprints and jumps..soviets some times waste so muche time finding special exercises..our coaches are deeply influenced by soviet training methods, and there are hundreds of special exercises out there…not always sure to be better than general one though
I agree with the overuse of special event-specific exercises in much of Europe. Sometimes it can get ridiculous. As with all things you need to find what is valuable for your situation.
