Yu suggested somewhere – track-weights-tempo-track-weights-tempo which has us with back to back CNS intensive days – twice in a week.
The approach used by most UK track coaches is to alternate weights with track such that the CNS is in a state of CONSTANT fatigue and the body is always on the brink of injury.[/quote]
I realize this – but back back twice a week risks the same thing – why not:
Also – what about My other post you keep not answering.[/quote]
Logistics are obviously important. Is the gym near the track? Do you have time to do both sessions on one day?
But also you have to ask the question, will overall quality be higher if I space the sessions out more across the week? Will injury risk be higher or lower? Is doing an extra track session a positive or a negative?… I have always taken the philosophy that less is more. I believe there is a far far higher percentage of athletes overtraining than undertraining. I believe this is the reason the UK team is so prone to injury.
How many UK athletes will break 10.2 this year? How many of those ran faster as juniors? Why is no one looking at this trend and asking ‘why’? Einstein said ‘insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different response’…[/quote]
Dude we talk about this all the time on this site…There is maybe 1-2 people on here that actually think the UK system is good…most of us do not.
