[quote author="David Woodhouse" date="1300550658"][quote author="joe" date="1300547554"]Horizontal jumpers are also sprinters. David, maybe the reason we can’t go to weightlifting coaches is because you do’t understand all aspects of our training, therefore you can’t put a program together for us.
I am very tired after all these heavy weights and had to have some down time, 1 day hang 155, next time fail 150 from the floor! It’s all over the place. It’s the reason i always go sub max.
Why have i heard in interviews/read that some top sprinters don’t even do plyo? Wan’t Ben Johnson one of thoe that didn’t? I’m not saying that maybe i don’t need them, i just can’t do them. Or at least the only one i think is worth doing – depth jumps.
You will always have good and bad sessions. You can’t let your head go down. Be patient, Keep pushing and the improvements will come.
Cleaning from the hang is a very different exercise from cleaning from the floor. That’s why I said at the very start of this thread that one should choose one variation and STICK with it. You get good at what you do.
Regarding plyos I prefer overhead shot throws for max distance. These are quantifiable, low stress and carry minimal injury risk.[/quote]
Make up your mind. In one post you’re basically saying train smarter and train less to achieve more and then in another post you’re telling Joe that bad sessions are normal just push through it! That’s rediculus. You shouldn’t just push through it. I haven’t had a bad lifting session all season because i cycle it correctly and listen to my damn body. If you aren’t physically ready for a Max strength session before you’re f’ed up from the previous session still then program is bullshit. And to just say follow it and struggle through the heavy session anyway is terrible coaching. You can’t advocate quality of training and then say something like that…[/quote]
Bad sessions will happen. You don’t change the whole program just because you ‘only’ hit 95% in one workout!!
You are seriously overdosing on haterade
