[b]Many on here will power clean pretty heavily, and some world class coaches have their athletes power clean for multiple sets of doubles and singles in the 90% range, however I have never heard of any track coach who has had athletes squat or power clean to max multiple times per week[/b]
They’re world class track coaches NOT world class STRENGTH coaches. Most track coaches are still utilising largely dated training methods. Malcom Arnold, for example, still stays loyal to the old ‘pyramid’ loading system.
Periodisation, as most understand it, is a dated concept within elite strength circles.
Could you expand on the dated training methods and the fact that periodization is a dated concept?
