    she was at East Tenn with a 110m straight indoors and full outdoor facility. don't see that as a reason.

    Another way of saying this is that with greater volumes you will experience greater fatigue and as you move farther and farther away from peak conditions, it can become more and more difficult to determine exactly what is needed at the right time in order to peak at the appropriate moment.

    Is it correct to say that as you move further away from peak form, the state of the organism becomes more and more uncertain because it is more difficult to differentiate between fatigue and lack of fitness?

    Additionally, as you are farther from a peak, do you then become farther away from the training intensities needed to increase performance?
    That's true, but it goes further, especially as one of the principle means to regulate such vols is to serially apply these componants leading to a host of adaptation issues.

    So the appropriate timing of the development and then maintenance of each of the performance threads becomes the manner in which to regulate training volumes so that total training volume is always within the adaptational capacity of the athlete?

    Is the nature of the serial application then that which allows for appropriate acquisition of the desired performance qualities (speed/special endurance) at the appropriate time (championship competition)?

    I agree. Doesn't make much sense then.

    Good thread and excellent piece of work by Hakan Andersson. I coach 3 decent Masters sprinters and find that the 'Less is More' theory holds true even more so for this group of athletes, particularly with intensive work such as Plios. We tend to use fast contact mini jumps prior to acceleration or speed work with few contacts. I used to use jumps/bounds with greater amplitude but found that the sprinting suffered and the injury risk was too great. It took too much time for the under 25s to recover, and even more so for the over 35 female and 2 over 40 male athletes. During the strength phase we have used jumps up onto a box but once again very low in volume.
