    This thread was primarily about what Boo did / does with the jumps and multi-eventers. They typically squat much deeper (below parallel) and do very wide split squats.

    Dennis who coaches the sprinters (including X) doesn't squat as deep (at least not for the majority of the year) and while the lifting frequency and volume is about the same as the jumps / multi-eventers, there seems to be less emphasis on the intensity.

    mike, how much tempo you do with these circuits?  do you use circuits as tempo or do them on top of tempo?

    For the jumps group, tempo is only done on Saturday (Intensive) other than the multi-eventers who might do another Intensive Tempo session in the middle of the week later in the year. The sprinters do considerably more tempo (mostly extensive) often on the same days as the weight circuits.

    Should sprinters squat deep?  What are the advantages/disadvantages of not squatting deep for a 100/200/400 guy?

    I think deep squatting is important for a couple reasons:
    *greater endocrine response due to more muscle recruitment.
    *greater hamstring and glute recruitment.
    *similar positions to that achieved in the 'set' position of a block start.
    *strength in extreme, or ranges outside of normal sport, ranges of motion.
