    Too many experts, no coach. I can get confused.

    Very Interesting and informative article…I think I will have to revamp my program also…I think medicine ball throws could help to transfer some of the strength to power(EG. plyometric push ups with claps, medicine ball throws from a lying position, baseball pitching, light resisted punching and kicking etc.) How would someome periodize this complete(Strength, plyometric, ballistic) Power Training

    [quote author="izzle1989" date="1301627282"]baseball pitching, light resisted punching and kicking etc

    I’ve never heard of these where did you hear about them?[/quote]those activities would be more plyometric in nature and they would be faster movements…I also train in mixed martial arts but I have only been working on the slow/strength portion not the fast power portion

    Interesting paper.

    God it would be a paradigm shift to move from mostly 80%+ to mostly far less.

    I understand a basic shift in that direction as one moves to comp phase.

    What do most people feel is the right frequency of heavier loading during comp phase?

    Once a week – more – less?

    I would think one full body heavy day would be sufficient…Or maybe the heavy and the light could be combined…A.m P.m ??????

    1 heavy session every 10-14 days is what i use…works very well during competition phase…max power and max speed can be fully realized under these circumstances and max strength is maintained to 97+ %.

    You would never just do block where everything is 85% + and then go straight into the next block where every is much lower…nothing is stopped or started just like that. Everything is about emphasis switches over time…

    Seems like i messed up. During the season i was lifting heavy twice a week on cleans, push press and full squat, well 80% 3×3. I didnt feel crap though.
