So i saw a week of a training program from Dan Pfaff today and now im confused.
This was pre-season training, and i just looked at the weights days mostly.
Mon ATG squats, bench, deadlift
5 seconds for eccentric movement, 80% of max normal lift 3×3 (squat was 80% of parallel max). The guy also did sprints and hurdle jumps before this.
Wed or Thurs was similar weights but iso holds halfway @ 3 seconds i think.
The Saturday was also similar weights but just standard movement, 3×[email protected]%.
He also said when they do cleans they do many sets, for example 8 sets of 2 heavy reps. I do basically an eighth of this yet i got my p.clean to 160.
What benefit does the eccentric and iso movements have over normal style. Does it really matter how you get stronger, as long as you lift the same at the end?
I spoke to a sprinter that trained with some of the best UK sprinters (last generation) and they just did standard weights – 12 reps in phase 1, 6 reps next, then down to 3 in season and seemed to have the same results on the track.
