Soviet training book - programing
So the book (see Other for original thread) talks about multidirectional and unidirectional training. They used multidirectional training for non-elite athletes and unidirectional for elite. If I understood it correctly, multidirectional is like Gant's hybrid where you train strength, speed, and endurance so that one builds on the other with a training day and through the week.
Unidirectional is where you do strength for say 6 weeks, then speed for six weeks, endurance...or sport specific exercises. They found that the strength volume can be lowered over the long run.
The other cool thing about the book is that it talks about how they chose and trained kids for sports.
So anyone come up with some other interesting programing nuggets?
interesting. Recently I have been thinking about scheduling my training on a 3week schedule so that for instance
week 1 - strength 3-4 sessions
week 2 - gymnastic/bodyweight 3-4 sessions
week 3 - Kettlebell/metcon 3-4 sessions
the back to week 1 again. This would certainly help me in my constant battle to schedule workouts that fit around job and family but I dont know if it is regular enough to see sustained improvements or whether the volume in any one week would be too much.
Soviet Multi-directional (Gpp) and Unidirectional(Spp)
At the end of their careers their training was intense,short term over trained and specific.
Unidirectional training for six week blocks was a primitive example of block training as described by Yuri Verkhoshansky with a switching of primary emphasis such as jumps to barbells to depth jumps.
