Methods of Strength Training
Strength coaches need to develop well-rounded programs to get the most out of their athletes. A well-rounded program will vary the training loads to allow for proper recovery as well as continuous adaptation. I we only follow progressive overload, we will reach an earlier peak, and stagnation will follow. The Russians devised an organization of training in the 1960s that trained multiple qualities while varying the training loads. These methods were written about by Zatsiorsy and are known as the maximal effort method, the dynamic effort method, and the repetition and submaximal effort method.
