Being heavily influenced by Charlie, WSB, the Soviets and the voices in my head, perhaps I can clarify:
(Davan, don’t forget, every training system has it’s ‘lemmings’. Don’t make the mistake of attempting to gain insight from a ‘lemmming’, but rather, find someone qualified.)
By the way, using the lemming in an effort to qualify a population of mindless followers is hillarious (great visual). I often use the word in the same context myself.
A conjugated training plan must not be confused with the Conjugate Sequence System/Coupled Successive System/Block Training, etc
A conjugate program simply implies multi-faceted development with no indication as to how the training load is appropriated to various tasks.
The CSS is a unification of concentrated/linear loading (for the primary task) and distributed loading for all ancillary tasks. This hierarchy of tasks which pinnacle at the primary will differ from block to block. Hence the significance of the ‘Sequence’ of blocks which ultimately result in a powerful cummulative training effect.
When WSB may be viewed as an application of the CSS is during a specific contest prep in which the lifter will structure and sequence a series of training blocks which target different primary tasks while concurrrently maintain ancillary tasks. Each block building upon the last in an effort to maximize the realization of the motor potential.
The CSS in its origins effectively encompasses the training of skill, strength, speed, endurance, etc the entire spectrum of abilities which, when developed, ultimately heighten the demonstration of sport skill.
Remember, just because WSB is a maximal strength development system does not mean it is void of a skill component. The sport skill just happens to be lifting weights, and in this regard the technical/skill component must not be underestimated.
The application of the CSS towards speed development is known as Vertical Integration and we are fortunate to have the founder in our midst.
