Put some time between training and practice and most often a much higher workload can be maintained particularly in season. Let's say it would look something like this just for shits and giggles:

Day 1
Training
12 hours at rest (work, school, whatever)
Practice

Day2
Training
12 hours at rest (same stuff)
Practice

and so on, use your jugdement as a coach as you get closer to competitive days in your schedules by removing whatever aspect of training you feel will hurt absolute performance in competition.

You probably know this stuff hence you being on this particular forum, and among this particular crowd. I pretty much just like to hear myself type though no applicable relevance may exist.

I know what you mean Pierre, its good to be in company of knowledgeable coaches as well. Right now, I'm priming one of my athletes to break the novice record in her weight class for powerlifting. She's within 30 kilos of the deadlift record and she's doing it all raw, no belt, suits or wraps.

I'm also gonna write up a program for a new client, a BJJ/MMA practitioner who wants to improve overall strength, which looks very interesting to me

The players train year-round, always in a structured environment. We haven't produced a Pele or Ronaldinho, partly because our best athletes play money sports, but mostly because those players grew up playing in the streets constantly.

Anyway, I'll cut this short and get off my rant now, while I'm still welcome here...
Ken-
I think that is a great insight. Luis Gutierrez of Straight Blast Gym talks a lot aobut "play as the way" whether its BJJ or jsut life. I think a highly regemented program like was the norm in eastern block countries obviously produces results but often at a high cost to the humanity of those involved.

Steve- I agree with you about the S&C. I was referring specifically to the skill side of things, which I think can be enhanced by playing in non-structured games.
