    Re: Chris6878's journal.

    I would cut out the grass running. Running on soft surfaces aggravates achilles tendinopathy. Mine comes back whenever I run on grass, especially soft grass. If I remember correctly, another member...

    Re: Coming back from chronic achilles

    I experienced the same with regards to grass. The softer the surface, the more likely it is to cause achilles issues.

    Re: RB34 Training Journal

    I'd be very careful with sleds or other acceleration work, as this causes the greatest stretch and thus strain on the plantar fascia due to the combination of ankle dorsiflexion and toe extension...

    I had pulled my right hamstring in training and did too much plyometric work and stair runs on concrete while recovering from this injury for my left foot to handle.

    Pain was worse in the morning...

    Re: RB34 Training Journal

    Itís unlikely that plantar fasciitis will heal to the point that you can sprint again without therapy. I found a Strasburg sock to be quite helpful. I also did gentle stretching of the fascia on a...

    What treatment/rehab work are you doing for your plantar fasciitis?

    Mine? I’m not training for powerlifting. Last time I did was in 2012. I’m focussing on LJ and a bit of TJ now. Aim is to break the M35 Queensland (state) records before turning 40 in June. I...

    Re: Chris6878's journal.

    Yes, bone broth would be a good option for a fast. Make sure you stay active and exercise while fasting, as you may otherwise lose some muscle rather than just fat. I would also suggest a high dose...

    Re: Chris6878's journal.

    Yes, the anti-inflammatory effect of the fast is largely due to the caloric deficit, although the high amount of Omega 3 and low amount of Omega 6 fatty acids may have also helped. The purpose of the...

    This was three weeks ago. The tendon pain has not come back since then, and my training results are better than before the fast. I’d love to hear from anyone who tries this, as I’m trying to convince...

    It’s also important to continue exercising while you’re fasting, as this will protect your muscles from being digested as fuel. I actually did five days of fasting followed by one day of normal...

    Re: Chris6878's journal.

    Inflammation is not necessary for survival, so it gets shut down when you’re in a severe caloric deficit. That’s one of the reasons why fasting is so beneficial for so many chronic conditions, most...

    Iíve been having achilles and other tendinopathies on and off for the last 10 years. I recently found out by accident that a four day fast (only consuming 200-300 calories per day consisting of fat...

    Re: Do you need SE for speed development

    Interesting. Will Claye’s 200m indoor PB is 21.77, which would probably be a low 21 outdoors, but he has only run 200m a couple of times. He’s run the 100m regularly and his PB here is 10.64, which...

    Also, quite a few of the very best horizontal jumpers have run world class 200m (Carl Lewis, Mike Conley, Larry Myricks) or even 400m times (Christian Taylor).

    Re: Do you need SE for speed development

    Thanks for your comments. I think I will work up to including a couple of 120s in my training once a week.

    With regards to strength training, I’m not saying that I want to max out in the gym when...

    Do you need SE for speed development

    Hi there!

    Does anyone have any insights or experience regarding the question as to whether SE work is required to develop maxV? I'm currently only interested in LJ and 60m, so don't really need SE...

    I was also surprised about the amount of overspeed in this program and that A-J was able to survive two overspeed sessions per week with only one day of rest in between.
