Ok so i got the gpp dvd, and i’m trying to to setup my schedule, but i have a few questions and concerns regarding aspects of the program that (to me at least) appear to be unclear.
Please, i appreciate any answers, (ps i have searched but it didn’t really answer all my questions, plus it takes a loooong time to search and read through all the threads to find a specific answer to a Q)
Anyway here they are:
I’m not a track athelete and have been training with spritns/weights and tempo all summer, so should i take any time off? (if so how long) befre starting the gpp? or can i just go right into it…?
The hills should be around a 15 degree incline right? are you supposed to sprint all out up these hills?
in week one it says short recovery btw runs… i don’t quite understand this, since i thought all sprint work require full recoveries… anyways, how long should the “short recoveries” be?
the other weeks say rec X/Y mins: ie week 2 2.5/5mins… what does this mean exactly? 5mins rest/2.5 metres?
week 5 says recovery 4.5/10 sets… i don’t know what this means…
In terms of %, intesity, and set and rep schemes, what should be done with the weights… (the dvd does not signify any particular scheme)… can you try to develope str at all during this phase?
so m, w, f is hills/upper weights/medballs, and tu th, sat is tempos, lower body weights and low intesity medballs… then after the upper and lower days switch… so are the weights on mwf high intesity and heavy and t,w,sat just like really light weights or something?
since i play soccer i was wondering if i could up the tempo a little interms of volume to maybe 3000-3400m…
thanks for the answers…
(plz respond lol… i know i’m a noob)
