Matt Gardner used a typical 3 day speed/power Split 8 x 80y grass sprints (Float-Sprint), skips for distance, 150 contacts ( 8×8 of 36 inches), 10 x 2 at 1.3 BW Cleans, Squats 4 x 4 @ 425. When we did this set up we often planned his soft tissue regeneration first and created the program around his massages and joint restoration sessions. Pool workouts were stacked on his tempo days. Since Matt and I are cut from the same cloth, our training was about 95% similar and made each session very integrated. Matt spent close to 35 hours per week doing the little things and the extra boxing workouts and massages left my thumbs and shoulders a bit achy!
