You go to the gym to get stronger. Plain and simple. Are you suggesting athletes should PURPOSELY reduce the efficiency of their training? That they should NOT try to get stronger?… Because if they DO get stronger, they might not get quicker anyway!! Very silly.
I’d never push a max triple to my sprinters and the expect 2 days later to run a 12 flat 120 in training…asking for troubles.
Most who employ this type of training actually find it far easier to recover from than traditional set and rep schemes suchs as 5x3r or 4x5r. I’m suggesting doing LESS work, less frequently and in fewer exercises! That means MORE adaptation energy for the track… What I generally see from track athletes is 4 or 5 faffy exercises that achieve nothing but fatigue the organism.
Kind of destroyed that arguement eh?!
