    i guess you have to wait and try again, because the server’s bandwidth has been exceeded…

    I opened the site up and win zipped the file.
    It is a scanned copy of NSA from ’96 on Edwards strenth training. First page was in what I think was Italian, didn’t look any further, because it runs VERY slow.

    I finally was able to download the training article. Nothing too special there…..I’ve seen that article published in English in NSA I believe.

    Sorry….didn’t mean it like that 😛 One thing you might want to take note of though is how low his volume is (with everything but especially his weight training) during his competitive phase. Keep that in mind when you’re putting together you’re training plans.

    I couldn’t get the link to work the first 10 or so times I tried it but I think that was a bandwidth issue. It did eventually ended up opening for me though….this was about a month ago though.

    I tried to open the link last night and it went to a default geocities page. This typically means the destination page that the link is supposed to lead to is no longer there or the link is bad (misspelled in the code or something).

    You’d probably be better off trying to find the article in publication. I’ve seen the article published in NSA.

    I don’t really like the single set of 10 “all-out” reps on Day 1. This especially doesn’t make sense to me if Jon was doing squats, cleans, and bench press with the same protocol on the same day for every week prior to outdoor.

    I’ve talked with Mike Stone (current USOC Strength High Performance Specialist and former Strength Coach for Ireland) on several occasions and he told me quite a bit about Jonathan’s training. He did quite a bit of testing and work with Edwards. None of what he told me included the Day 1 protocol described in that article…..not that that necessarily means he didn’t do that at one point, I’ve just never heard of that kind of thing with Edwards. One thing I do like though is the simplicity of the program as well as the protocol for day 2.

    I kind of get the impression from the article that the author of the article just wrote the article and didn’t know too much about Edwards training. For example:
    “I am not sure how long this was done, but I will offer two ways of doing this depending on how long you plan to use this program.”

    and

    “I don’t know if assistance lifts were used….”

    This doesn’t mean that it’s not a good article, just perhaps that it isn’t exactly Edwards training.

    mike, can you give us a general overview of what was his training like / do you use his method to train your athletes?

    Hi Misha-
    Welcome to the board. He really didn’t do anything to out of the ordinary….just a nice solid program. It didn’t seem like anything that a lot of the coaches who post here couldn’t have come up with. I do remember that his volume was very very low during the competitive season.
