Is there a better order to put event training in during the week? My two weekest events are the HJ and the PV. so is there a better time to practice them? Also what is a type of practice jump routine to work on? i am confused my current college coach all he has us do is do straddle jumps in the HJ or full jumps.
lifting is mon., wed. and friday
Typically acceleration work
such as 4x10m, 4x30m, 3x50m
then usually 2-3 sets of walking forward/ backward lunges
Grass runs barefoot
such as 120y , 20 sec rest, 120y. 70sec rest and do about 4 sets of that
Top speed work
such as flying 30m or flying 120m
Also bounding from 30m -50m
1 set of walking lunges 10m forward and 10m backward
More of a tempo day
10 sets of: 20sec jump rope (each time max # of contacts) then abs then a hamstring exersice where someone holds your heals and you delay the falling forward by contracting the hamstrings. 2 min rest between sets
Not sure what kinda day
120m at 90% walk back rest about 3-4
walking lunges either forward or backward 20m 3 sets
I think you can and probably should do some form of technical training every day. It might help to match up the events and days by their speed requirements. For example, throws, short approach jumps and the HJ (low velocity approach) might go on low CNS days and the other events go on speed / high CNS days.
here's my thoughts for what its worth or not
1) You've got a lot of total run volume crammed together in first three days. your wednesday work will probably suffer and if your theme is speed this week, your taking away from that. looking at it now, your theme looks to be some time of stamina.
2) if this is early GPP, move the tuesday to friday and take the friday out for now.
3) make tuesday/thursday a technical day in some way, even with some low level commanalities/tech training.
4) i've always thought that bounding complimented acceleration better, so bounding on wednesday to monday.
