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

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
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…
