Now KT mentioned using straight leg bounding as one method of special strength training for MaxV. Would the example Mike gave in a different thread of using stadium stairs (for height to mimic top speed mech) be another way? My question is where is the line drawn for how much is used in a session and in how many sessions in the micro.
I personally don’t like to use simulated MaxV work more than 1x / week for a couple weeks.
So my thoughts are here right now. Say I have 8 weeks of MaxV broken into two 4 week micros, with three weeks of full vol followed by a one week unload period. Speed is done 3 days a week. Would I be best setting it up like this? For the first micro I would have roughly half of the vol come from the track (ie flying 20’s) and half come from the drills like KT mentioned. For the second micro I would do roughly 75% on the track and 25% drills, so that I can adapt fully to running at MaxV but still I am keeping the drills in there to maintain the gains from them from the previous micro?
Does that sound like it would work, or am I better off sticking with flying 20’s?
I think that could work. I don’t think it would be quite as beneficial as the flying 20s though. What event are you doing this for?
