Default 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?
