Default For the Studious: Article on intensity of training

Joel Jamieson wrote an article called "Intensity of Training" on his website 8weeksout.com. It is very good(I have no affiliation and this is no marketing ploy, just like his stuff).

I would like to know what some of the more well versed in training think about this philosophy. I have found his work to always make sense to me, and he has helped me to debunk many myths about training.

If this doesn't get any posts I will just rename it "Should boxers lift weights," then it will get 2000 posts.

interesting article but i was hoping for a few more conclusions. seemed to me he basically said exercise intensely when you plateau but not before.

I was hoping for something along the lines only high intensity twice a week and low intensity rest of the time.

Yes, that's it. I just see every week people asking about Tabata and other super high intensity protocols, and thought this gave an easy to understand explanation on a different and somewhat obscure philosophy on training these days. Maybe I liked it because it is how I feel about how training should be done. He even advocates heavily for ...traditional roadwork!

I'm convinced people see the likes of a Tabata training as some easy way to super fitness, without really understanding that as a protocol it was designed for Olympic level athletes - I would bet that about 99% of athletes couldn't even get close to doing a full set of tabata properly.

I haven't read the article but If the guy advocates roadwork (i.e. longer slower rus), mixed up with some higher intensity stuff, moving on to weight your training in favour of higher intenisty once you've plateaud then he gets a thumbs up from me.

Good article and good points were brought up regarding training intensity etc..It's funny how many tried and true techniques have been rejected in favor of the newest fad to come down the pike.
