Yeah, the Soviet literature claims that the higher the level of the athlete, that training needs to become more focused upon one aspect at a time.

This is usually referred to as "Block Training".

Pavel's stuff (which is usually a recommendation of a Power the the People cycle followed by a cycle of kettlebell training) is about as basic as you can get with these focused blocks.

The conjugate method, which is simulataneous training of multiple qualities is generally regarded as an inferior way to train advanced athletes, though it's a very efficient and effective way to train low-to-middling good athletes.
