THE EFFECT OF HIGH INTENSITY POWER TRAINING DURING A COMPETITIVE INTERNATIONAL TRACK AND FIELD SEASON.
With 1080 Quantum used as the enabler for short duration high intensity training, this case study shows how lower extremity power can be maintained and even enhanced during the competitive season.
Many elite athletes have difficulty maintaining the ability to generate power during a long competitive season. Busy competition schedules combined with risk of injury and degradation from in-season training creates a dilemma for both coaches and athletes. This case study investigates the possibility to maintain or even enhance in-season leg power using infrequent but intense lower extremity sessions with the 1080 Quantum Syncro system. The athlete in question is a 110 meter hurdler competing at international level.
