    materials needed to create training program

    Hi,

    Can somebody please tell me which book(s) and or video(s) I need to buy to be able to create an indoor and outdoor season(i.e. a complete season) training program to increase speed, power, strength?

    I need the details: reps, sets, rest, volume, intensity, peaking, types of plyos/weight exercises/ types of med ball throws etc.etc. .. ALL the details.

    Thank you

    Hi Isaiah53

    Thank you for your note and question.

    In order of priority I recommend a few things.

    First I suggest you read Speed Trap if you have not already. Charlie's story, told my Charlie and it's loaded with a lot of training info and it will give you perspective on track and field based on Ben Johnson getting his gold medal taken away due to a PED scandal.

    Look at the comments on Amazon and my replies too. Understand that Speed Trap is not just about 1988. Not even close. It explains why Charlie loved speed and why he sold his Aston Martin Sports car to finance his dream. It took me 10 years to read the book. Crazy hey? When I finally read it was difficult as I was around from Feb of 1988 to Sept of 1988 and then things became like the biggest hurdle race of my life. ( Thank gosh I am still running that race albeit solo without my key front man Charlie and James's dad).

    Then read and study and refer to the "The Charlie Francis Training System". Ironic that Charlie was not going to participate in that book. He was too busy until September of 1988.Then he decided to write the book with the Coaching Association of Canada because he was banned for life ( to this day he has not been reinstated back into coaching) as a coach and fired from his job. This book is the best selling book and product of every product on the site.

    Both books read and studied and kept as references will give you some ideas and history and information you will need to move ahead.

    Planning a program is not an easy thing but it's not terribly either once you have the ideas of how Charlie worked and work backwards from there. You don't need to know all things today or tomorrow. You do need and want to follow some of the tried and true methods like performing high intensity not more than 2 or 3 days a week.

    continued.....

    Lots of people debate on sites and in articles about the low and tempo and it's good or it's not or don't do it.

    I am not here to say do this or that. Not my job.

    My job is to pass on information on what I did and what i learned or think I know and what Charlie did for himself and for those he coached.

    Notice I don't advertise.

    Notice I am not selling stuff you don't need which will end up in a landfill or your garbage or broken.

    Knowledge will allow you to gain the perspective you need to forge ahead.

    The best video or easiest video to grab a lot of information from and to hear the reinforcement of the content you read in any of the books sold on my site would be ( GPP) General Preparation Phase for all sports. Charlie and I worked hard on putting this together. I am in it doing sit ups and med ball throws and hurdle walk overs. Lindsay is also in it. Charlie coached her and she lived and trained with us for 6 years and she helped me and Charlie with our son as she was a nanny we had met at a training camp.( She is still my friend and just got married 3 years ago and she does not live very far from me and my son)

    More stuff.....

    Next for you I would buy each and every one of the Key Concept books. They are each loaded with content and again go about giving you information you want and need to make the most of your training and planning. I made these books from a very popular book called "Key Concepts Elite Edition". I did a bunch of edits and named each book based on the topic Charlie discussed.

    All the books I have mentioned are for sale as well on Amazon. I wanted to do this to have a more global awareness of what Charlie accomplished.

    Re: materials needed to create training program

    I apologize for not helping you quicker. I've spent my last year doing major work on the home Charlie and I raised our son in and recently had a family emergency which has now been managed well.

    If you wish to reach out to me I can be found on Facebook via Cf.com or from info or find me on messenger. I would be happy to give you more perspective and perhaps better value as well as it's been a while since I've held a major sale.

    Training is a fabulous way to spend time. And if and when it's done well it's an investment.

    I'd be happy to answer some of your questions.

    Charlie's works are unmatched in my opinion: the best materials available.

    Old downloads that are more than 10 years old may not work if you did not maintain your storage.

    CharlieFrancis.com has a 100% guarantee on all of it's content. If you are not satisfied let me know and I will return your money in full.

    If you are a long time member RB34 or having an issue with a product let me know and I will be more than happy to resend you file.

    From your posts, it might not hurt you to brush up on some of the material. . Damn, I wish my emojis worked on this website. Who is the owner anyway? LOL.

    Thank you Pioneer for the compliment.

    You have been a long time member since January 2003.

    You have not only been a significant contributor to www.charliefrancis.com, you have met and worked along side Charlie. Charlie spoke well and highly of you.

    We have been online since 2000 and not once advertised. This has kept this information as it has been intended according to how Charlie wanted it. He wanted to share what he did and share how he did it.
