    Improving from 15:54 in the 1.5mi for someone your age and weight should be simple. For most young people who are relatively fit and don't have any mechanical issues, 12 flat should be pretty...

    The standard periodisation mantra is Accumulation, Intensification, Realisation. This is an accumulation routine. You need to go through all of those phases, even is you're doing it concurrently.

    If you're looking for volume, the single best high volume program I have ever seen is Pavel Tsatsouline's DeLorme adaptation (in fact, more like bastardisation).

    It uses the DeLorme loading scheme...

    Of course it will "contribute", but so will dancing, to some extent - in fact, probably more. You choose the methods which work best for the quality you are trying to improve.

    That's called an appeal to ridicule. It is not a valid way to argue a point and is often one of the first signs that the person who does it is out of his depth - along with appeal to authority, which...

    Sorry, but I think you've missed the point. Even my post you've quoted doesn't support that. Nonetheless, I'm not going to pursue it further. And we won't get into the "I've done this and that"...

    The short answer is yes. Hard work trumps bad genetics 99% of the time. Getting to the NFL is another story. But for High School and even college to some degree, you can get there through old...

    This is very close to the exact truth. While it's a long bow to draw to say that 20 rep sets build "slow twitch" fibre (they are more likely to build type 2A fibres - the "fast oxidative" type), they...

    It will not improve your sport skills in any way whatsoever. After building a strong base is one way to put it. It is a method for advanced athletes. That level can take 4 months to reach or 4 years.

    Post activation potentiation is implemented in a number of ways. The most common is what we generally call contrast training. There are a few reasons that I don't think it solves a problem. First and...

    I am loathe to give advice on injuries that really should be looked at by a professional. But this is almost guaranteed to be the issue and needs to be addressed if you don't want it to happen again.

    It appears we've started a discussion about a semantic we don't disagree on. I simply don't like the term "Arse to Ground" or it's acronym.


    The only issue is this: If I tell someone to do chins...

    I don't call anything "ATG". That's the point. It is not a descriptive term (your arse will never actually touch the ground) and what it means for people is different. A better descriptor is "maximum...

    I'm afraid that's not strictly true. Reversal strength - as it pertains to the vertical jump - is best performed at speed. That's the very reason we have plyometrics. Squats are, by definition, a GPP...

    I've watched this argument going on for a while. There's not much in it which is too much of an issue. But this may well be.

    Those coaches are good and are probably some of the better ones for learning about training through their eyes. To that, I'd add Dan John, Mark Verstegen, Pavel Tsatsouline, Ashley Jones and Martin...
