Can anyone please further define Strength endurance as noted in the short to long progression in phase I of the seminar graphs and dvds. Unfortunately, my dvd consistently freezes when this topic is brought up.
Strength endurance is listed as 4x30, 5x30 etc in the short to long phase or 3-4x30 and 60,60 in the long to short phase.
I’ve done a search and found some conflicting definitions, would the A-B skips fit into the strength endurance category? If so, can anyone be kind enough to really define what they use and recommend in the A-B skips.
It’s the exact same drill, as seen on the GPP DVD and elsewhere (hips are never low!) except carried out over an extended duration- far longer than with the power speed type runing As usually seen, requiring great staying power. Sometimes Strength Endurance can go as far as 200m, which takes about 4 minutes!
Are strength endurance drills used on high intensity days, following the sprint work? If a 400m runner wanted to use these, would the distance be extended out even longer?? Sounds very tough, even at 60-80m…
You’ve got to keep perfect form to get the most out of it. I strongly doubt most athletes can start with 60 to 80m and keep form.
On the Vanc 2004 DVD, you can see the layout for two different approaches to SPP- Short-to-Long and Long-to-Short.
On these charts, you can see the appropriate amounts of Strength Endurance- BUT these charts are for developed athletes, as you can see from the speed volumes.
