Amusing line in the first article - "...they’re a nice training tool in and of themselves, they’re also an amazingly effective way to trick women into lifting weights."

This got posted in the CFFB comments section for today. As was noted there, it makes a pretty good case for deceleration training but it doesn't really specify what deceleration training looks like.

Re: two excellent articles

I like the first article. I suggest asking coaches what type of loads they give their athletes. Swimmers do about 3 hero type intensity sets a week. Ask a speed skater coach or a hockey coach for their training plan if you want t develop explosiveness.

I feel like your experience with swimming training was much different from mine if you were doing 3 20+ minute efforts without rest a week. What exactly does "varsity" swimming mean in Canada?
