THE SCENARIO

——————

Four athletes (25 years old +/- 1 year) were looking to increase their 20-yard sprint speed and vertical jump height.

 

The Story

Each athlete came into this program with previous experience following TriPhasic Training structured workouts. None of the four however had experience going through a strength speed or speed strength focused phase.

THE PROGRAM

For the first 12 weeks of training, with a deload week every 4th week, the athletes were put through a program which integrated principles from TriPhasic Training, the French Contrast method, and Westside Barbell.

Monday: French Contrast + TriPhasic Lower

Tuesday: French Contrast + TriPhasic Upper

Wednesday: Westside Barbell Max Effort Lower
