Ex: Short-to-long – early emphasis on speed and strength (weights) development. Start low on volume and increase as time goes on. Move from one component to the other, etc. etc.
I don't know if I agree 100% with this as a short to long approach. The length of reps will increase, but the total number will be cut back. If anything total training volume would decrease.
Long-to-Short – Early emphasis on endurance and strength (not necessarily weights) moving into speed work much later in the year.
Please explain "strength".
