When I get bored, I like to read through some of the old threads on the Charlie Francis website.  There are a lot of really knowledgeable coaches who post there and the discussions get really interesting.

I was reading through one of these old discussions when I noticed the user Christian Thibaudeau who was posting in 03 in his pre-T-Nation days.

The discussion was about the frequency of training for the olympic weightlifting teams of bulgaria and the other eastern bloc countries.

According to Thibs, one of the primary reasons for their style (multiple sessions per day) was  as follows:

2. Increased synaptic facilitation. There is evidence that motor learning is improved more by frequency of practice than by volume of practice. By training 2-3 times per day, event at equivolume, the motor learning effect is greater.

Vertical Jumping is a motor skill just like lifting weights is.  So wouldn't doing jump training multiple times a day on a training day be more beneficial?

I assume for a recovery standpoint it wouldn't be good to train every day but on training days this suggests that the optimal amount would be several (2-3) shorter jump sessions.  This should lead to better/faster results.

Thoughts on this?

I'm not a member of wgf so I thought I'd let you know here.

I was reading over your debate on wgf.

I thought alex's point and your points were both good.
Many questions arose from the debate.
I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts.

Obviously boxers are the best punchers and have the best punching technique.  But would they be even better if they did extremes for punching?

Because they are pro boxers there is already a pre-selection for punching talent.  Maybe the boxers that make it are the lucky ones born with perfect technique.  Perhaps for other boxers iso-extremes would have helped them?

or, maybe all of the practice punching led to perfect technique as the body adapted to the demands?

I read something from a coach where he was talking about glute development and the best way to do that was by doing sprints...the body would adapt to using the glutes properly.  Is this possibly similar (i.e. all of the practice leading to the body's search for efficiency and thus perfect technique arising)?

congrats on the pr man

I was almost hit by a car today and that made me think of an idea for vert.

Say your athlete has plateaued at a certain box jump/barrier jump height.

Have a car a couple inches higher drive at your athlete whose escape to the side is blocked.... plateau broken

you are strong :)

when you do vert in training do you measure it?

If not, I suggest starting, it makes it easier to track progress and at least for me sets a clear goal as an incentive.

Are you in college?

Hi, thought I'd join.  Been going to this website religiously for the past couple months and finally decided to join and start a  training log and stuff...
