But not ALL training, especially supplementary training such as weights and plyos, conditioning, etc. needs to be done at 100% speed. Sometimes these type of comments can be confusing in that way.

    I don’t see the parallel either. They are going to get killed in the champ game anyway.

    The most obvious parallel is the demands of fitness and speed of the blur offense. Not saying that Jimmy is doing miracles, but you must be fit enough to handle the short rest intervals and not be killed with injuries.
