Where can I find good articles on bobsled training?
I really like the CAD program or you can use CFTS but decrease the tempo volume similar to a football skill/combo.
Also, search the archives..there is plenty of good stuff here.
LOWER BODY ASCENDING SESSION
A1. Vertical jumps 10 reps
A2. Depth jumps 5 reps
A3. Jump squat with 30% of maximum 5 reps
A4. Power clean from hang 3 reps
A5. Back squat 3 reps
You would wait 90-120 seconds between exercises and perform the circuit 3 to 6 times depending on the week. You would take 3 minutes between the end of a circuit and the beginning of the new one.
Assistance work and remedial work (hamstrings, lower back, etc.) was added at the end of the session as needed
LOWER BODY DESCENDING SESSION
A1. Back squat 3 reps
A2. Power clean from hang 3 reps
A3. Jump squat with 30% 5 reps
A4. Depth jumps 5 reps
A5. Vertical jump 10 reps
This set-up uses the same exercises for both session, but with a reverse order. But we also used different sessions... for example:
LOWER BODY ASCENDING SESSION
A1. Vertical jumps 10 reps
A2. Depth jumps 5 reps
A3. Jump squat with 30% of maximum 5 reps
A4. Power clean from hang 3 reps
A5. Back squat 3 reps
LOWER BODY DESCENDING SESSION
A1. Romanian deadlift 3 reps
A2. Power snatch from blocks 3 reps
A3. Jump goodmorning with 30% 5 reps
A4. Depth jump for distance 5 reps
A5. Broad jump series 5 reps
there was track work.
It used the same basic principle.
For example:
1 x 30m with sprint parachute
1 x 30m sprint
1 x 30m overspeed device
2-3 minutes between each sprint... repeat the series 2-4 times depending on performance.
The same was done for 60m sprints (on a different day).
2 intense speed sessions per week (1 session of 30m, 1 session of 60m) and 2 tempo running sessions per week.

In the interval method it is possible to execute one series of several sets consisting of 1-2 repetitions using a heavy weight (85-90%) and with limited rest pauses. At the end of the series, the number of repetitions decreases and the duration of rest pauses increases. For example, in the first set of 3 repetitions the rest pause is 30-40 seconds; in the second set of 2-3 repetitions the rest pause is 40-60 seconds; in the third set consisting of 1-2 repetitions, the rest pauses is 60-90 seconds and in the in the 4th set there is one repetition.
