thats where we are lucky in athletics – the recipe has the same complexities but the taster only cares about us getting across the line – as most ref and linesmen cant run sub 10s 100s we dont have to worry about them :>>
Again Ash is on the money for other sports as well – with sprinters their training will depend on their progress relative to the identified needs of that training block – at times they will be doing splits, then may move onto a period of whole body or even multiple day olympic lifting as Ash has tried on himself.
For continued progression the body needs continues stress punctuated by enough recovery – once you adapt to a programme that stimulus is no longer present …. aka what works now doesnt work forever!
It great to read what the rugby guys prescribe – ot crosses over well to other sports – thanks guys
