    Clyde Harts programme

    http://www.usatf.org/groups/Coaches/...lyde_Hart3.pdf

    This article from Clyde Hart shows a sample programme (quarter way down the page) which looks to contain huge volume. Who does this much?

    Joking aside it's a meat grinder system, i.e. put 100 sprinters through it and 90 get hurt/burn out/get slower, 9 do really well and 1 becomes a world beater. He also recruits those with decent natural speed and good speed endurance, the rest is just getting them really really fit.

    that's very interesting, didn't think of it in those terms. Certainly one way to make sure you have the most resilient of athletes.

    Rich,

    You realize that a, b, c etc. are different example workouts that would be done on different days...they're not all done in the same workout.

    Are we on the same page, ie. pg 6 onwards, labelled 1, 2, 3 etc. ? I originally thought that there were different options for each day but then realised that each session within a day was targeting a different quality. I then assumed that all sessions on the daily list were to be performed. Also, they are labelled 1, 2, 3, etc. starting with warm up and finishing with weights etc. and so again it looks like the athlete is intended to work through the list.

    these have been discussed at length and they are all for the same day but are early on and the volume drops as the intensity increases, eg the 10 x 200 @ 30 sec drops to something like 2 x 200 @ 22 from memory. There seems to be consensus with Stikki's meat grinder comment.

    How important would the weekend sessions be? I am thinking the 3 mile is active recovery and the Fartlek for extra aerobic fitness if the athlete feels up to it.

    I ask since Clyde Hart states that the athlete is "encouraged" to do these sessions, as though they are optional
