    OK, I just started my course for Specialist in Sports Conditioning. Lots of cool, in depth info. I was flipping through and found this and thought I'd post it here and see whachy'all think.
    I can't post the link, you need to registered with them to get it.

    Seems best for developing "Speed Strength".

    Few things of interest here:

    This makes me think that there's usually a lot of bouncing involved. 'Lets see who can break the most ribs'... :S

    O-lifting vvvery rarely uses sets of 5. Hell, even Westside DE work tends to be doubles, IIRC. Wonder why they use 5 reps. Didn't Zatiorsky also said that peak power could only come against heavy weights... I don't have his book handy, but I'm sure there's something to this effect in it.

    I was pretty sure that it'd been shown that perceived speed was more important than actual bar speed. 'Lift you heavy weights like they're light, and your light like they're heavy' etc etc. That kinda throws off the calculations completely.

    Dunno. Maybe I just made all that shit up. It's 2am. Gimme a break.

    It's just dynamic effort training.

    HA. That's what I wanted though, a little criticism on it. I know who Zatiorsky is, but have not read his stuff. In other parts of the ISSA textbook they do say that though, that you need maximal loads.

    The rubber bounce pad seemed odd to me as well.
