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.

Goodluck with that.

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.

RB, you mean the search function…is still sub par?

Very much so…

What is the same basic principle?

From Dr. Verkhoshansky

1st day

Barbell squats (90%) 2-4 x 5. Rest is 4-5 min between sets and 6-8 min between series.

Barbell squats (80%) 2-3 x 10-12. Rest is 2 min between sets.

Barbell squats (85%) 2 x 8 (+2-3). After completion of the last repetition in the squat with the weight at 85%, it is necessary to do 2-3 additional repetitions. Rest between sets is arbitrary.

4th day

Barbell squats: (80%) 1 x 10, (90%) 1 x 5, (90-93%) 1 x 2

The series are repeated 2-3 times with 4-5 min rest between sets and 6-8 min rest between series

5th day

Barbell squats (93-95%) 3-5 x 2-3. Rest is 4-6 min. between sets and 6-8 min. between series

Barbell squats (80%) 3-5 x 8-10. Rest between sets is 2-3 min.

6th day

Barbell squats (70%) 1 x 12, (80%) 1 x 10, (85%) 1 x 7

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.

Any thoughts on tempo running?

Nice steal from a 5 year old Thibadeau article.

Don’t you have anything fucking better to do than troll Cf.com? Like maybe shoot yourself in the head?

Read my post retard, I mention CAD in my first post.

Train like a sprinter. Get your body weight between 95 and 115kg - depending on your height. Keep it simple.

Would you mod the ext tempo volume?

Ascending / Descending is nice, but I wouldn’t opt for the circuit version of it. This is just a comment, I am not referring to a specific post…

I agree 100%, I done both and I like the old school verison much better. The only plus to the circuit verison is the athlete is fresher for the exercises towards the end vs performing 3-4 sets of 3-4 different exercises before getting to the clean or squat.

Talking with a buddy on here who knows how the world push champ trains. Low volume accels one day, low volume resisted accels another day, maybe some fly run and top speed work. Simple. Weights simple - linear hypertrophy, strength, power. Low intensity days very easy with just warming up and maybe some assistance bodybuilding type work.

When say power, which one is it:

A: 5x2x50-65%

B: 3x2x90-95%

I agree with your post… It would be a mod sprinter workout…

If memory serves me correct heavy complexed with jumps/hops. Makes sense since the sport is essentially resisted running.
