    Re: RB34 Training Journal

    @balance
    My recollection of most military body weight circuits is they seem biased towards the selection exercises. A lot of push ups pull ups and sit ups. For obvious reasons.

    Re: Question Regarding Tempo Work

    Reduce number of reps in each set to say 3. I find volume per set is the most tiring aspect.

    Maintain quality of movement, ie don't do a shuffle/jog. Go from say 3 sets of 3x100 to 4x3x100, then...

    By the way, I once saw a video of DJ doing some kind of dynamic strength work (kettlebell ?). Sure he is very strong but he just looked like an overweight neanderthal trying to learn aerobics steps....

    Limiting entry to top 4 in the country makes sense if you are going to have thresholds. Better than trying to administer time standards for entry.

    Re: Standards to Compete

    I checked out the competitors in the 2018 world champs before my first post. A spot check on mens 100 and 200s shows heats, semis and final up to about M60. 3 rounds is not unreasonable. For 1500m it...

    I agree this is great progress.
    My point was related to middle aged burnout/injury. Clearly anyone hitting world lead times has improved, or at least not declined much.

    Damien Leake trains 3-4 times per week on the track, 3-4 times in the gym. Some are double sessions. He clearly is not taking his age as an excuse to cut down.
