when you develop a 700+ squatter who is 18yrs old at a bw 168, then speak – otherwise be more open minded. the proof is in the pudding with myself and the other major unviersities who follow a similar setup.
Show me an 18yo @ 168 who has completed a 700+ squat in a drug free powerlifting federation. I have trained a 600+ 19yo that competed in, and won, a national event in a drug free, tested, powerlifting federation. It was a world record lift for the association that still stands, and exceeds the world record in almost every drug free powerlifting association in the nation. And when he came to me 9 months earlier he had a 455lb. squat after three years of powerlifting. If you have an 18yo., drug free (tested), 168lb. athlete that you've trained for any length of time on your system, and who can full squat 700+, put him in on youtube. You'll both be famous.
Again, if it's better to train the whole body every session, why does every elite powerlifter, bodybuilder and Oly lifter do splits? Are they all wrong? Anecdotal claims about one athlete without proof mean nothing. If your serious about this type of discussion, post some science or at least some links to articles, so others can review and evaluate the information that has led you to your opinion on training.
My comment was not directed towards the best way to integrate weight training into a soccer, or even a football program. My comment was directed toward the assertion the training the whole body on the same day is superior to split training. So, since we're talking about strength and power, I challenge you to find one elite powerlifter that trains his entire body every workout in the manner you described. For every one you find, if you can, I'll show you twenty that do split training. The same offer goes for bodybuilders.
And I am open minded. It's you who's trying to put restrictions on my opinion, and I admit it's just that, an opinion. I understand that all athletes who want to increase their limit strength and build explosiveness don't have the time to train like a weight lifter. That doesn't make the 'train the whole body every workout' better. It is a compromise.
