    The first time I saw him run was in Perth. He looks very youthful for 41. I'm curious to know if he competed when he was in his 20's and 30's and what type of training he is doing now?
    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    He seems to have started competing in 2005, but has never been faster than now. See http://www.powerof10.info/athletes/p...thleteid=21535. He has a YouTube channel

    Probably even earlier. Given that his 2005 times for 100/200/400 were 11. 22. and 50. he must have been doing something before that. From my own records on powerof10 I suspect the start dates per athlete of 2003-2005 are related to when the internet systems became more widely used for storing/displaying performances.
    But whatever, he has shown interesting development from good to elite in both absolute and relative times.

    Re: My Masters Training

    There were a few other outstanding performers at the World Masters, Stephen Peters, Bill Collins and Roland Groeger,. I have read a bit about Peters and Collins training. Both train very differently, Peters does high intensity low volume and only trains 3 x week and appears to do the same sessions each week, typically- 4 x 100m starting at 50% with the 4th rep at 100%, 30 mins rest and then a flat out 300 or 400. From reading Collins book he appears to do very high volume and lower intensity and increasing intensity and reducing volume as the season progresses. Don't know anything about Groegers training. Not trying to hijack the thread but thought this may be of interest re different training styles of masters athletes,

    Mattias Sunneborn was another, if not the, standout performer. Competed in almost every event and won most of them. He does a lot of ploys, heavy weights and all-out sprints.

    Re: My Masters Training

    sorry late replying, Power of 10 was created in 2005 and most peoples times before then are none existent unless there is a major note of them etc

    He is a personal trainer and lives a very healthy lifestyle, eats very very well.

    High emphasis on gym power development, complex weights and plenty of quality plyos

    A great example of how much love for the sport and desire to be something can keep you driving even when getting older!

    yeah Peters was/is excellent, he doesn't like the long work at all and keeps sessions short and sharp, perfect form and holds all the way, very well drilled.

    44- 26/26 (switched to trainers due to cramp) 32/34

    Thur
    3-150m 4min rec / 10min / 150-250-350
    17.9/17.5/17.8 - 18.4 / 33 / dropped out cramp

    weekend was push sled session on Saturday and then hills on Sunday (8-180m 3min walk down rec)


    Tonight I will be doing 300/200/100 - 200/100/100 off 5 min rec and 10/15 min between set

    Re: My Masters Training

    Any reason why you are doing SE/intensive tempo every session and no true speed work?
