Lag Time Phenomena


Perhaps the biggest mystery to performance improvement is where the contributions are coming from and when do we expect the changes to occur? I don’t know but I just started asking coaches that have good record keeping about phase transfer rates. For example, how fast do various forms of training actualize in performance. For example if I PR in the snatch will that show up next week in the 60m dash or will it show up during outdoors? I have no conjectures just observations of limited experience, but some coaches have used a lot of different programs at different schools and clubs with great success. A good way to look at things is to see the practice variables and how long did they arrive before the improvements in performance. Using a Planning Sheet you can use a gantt chart to see how rapid or long a transfer takes, but how much time one spent investing into that change. Studying other programs is my way of learning of what can be done in similar situations.
