yohan blake weight training session

A video of blakes low intensity weight lift, i would love to see the machine in 1:27 of the video in my gym, it seems very useful

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MpCX3WSyzE" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MpCX3WSyzE</a>

And they say they don't have much facilities, I would love my gym to have those facilities, modern day gyms are mostly bench press and power racks and dumbell corner, they don't have that calf raise machine, and the reverse leg press thingy.

I will have to find an alternative to get the same movement but using a different machine.

I prefer doing hyperextension at flat and not 45 degree.

they are bullshitting about not having facilities.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
wednesday: fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure

I guess it's some sort of conspiracy, where they make us think they only use equipment lying round and do running barefooted, but in secret they have a top training facility

LOL, i was ready to rant on you for criticizing a world class sprinter's training but decided to watch the video first.

Half AND assisted bench press, some weird ass half reverse hyper thing, 1/4 to 1/8 SL leg press, limited ROM on top AND bottom OHP, and my favorite, closeup on the monstrous 100kg calves raises load ( which are done with limited concentric ROM too ).

But it is just marketing again, for whatever reasons he just had to shoot some gym scenes.

And on the hyperextension thing he was actually doing HIP extensions, not "back" extensions. Just like what you see your regular Joe in the gym do.

But yeah... just terrible crap. I wonder if that's truly how he trains. If it is... imagine where these guys would be with actual proper training (remember the Usain Bolt reverse bicep curl power clean video?)

amazing what you can do with great genes, lots of sprinting, and some designer PEDs.
