Olympics involve a variety of sports. Powerlifting and powerbuilding, or anything to do with the Cold Iron Bar discussed here.

Power-Sled Training

Postby Canuck Singh » Thu Nov 06, 2008 7:06 pm

Power sled training is an advanced, explosive-power training technique. Excellent core/torso strength and can already move significant poundages in the squat and deadlift exercises. If you have any major flaws in their sprint technique the sled will expose it, amplify the biomechanical problem, and therefore possibly create/aggravate injuries.

Being aware of these factors; incorporate the sled work into your program as you would any other explosive-power session. That is, perform this work when your athletes are not fatigued from any other training. Don't make sled work part of a 2 hour conditioning session. Remember, speed training is quality training; it should have no aerobic component to it. Allow for maximum recovery between drills. Be sure the athletes are thoroughly warmed up with run-throughs, 50-90% effort sprint work and stretching. The sessions should be brief but explosive, lasting only around 30mins. This is not including warm up. Perform this work 2 to 3 times per week, depending obviously on what phase of the season you are in. However this sort of work can and should be included year round.

key ingredient; Capsicum, have been documented for centuries, but it hasn’t been harnessed as a weight loss aid until now. Capsicum is such a powerful fat burning supplement that it hasn’t been safe to use on a regular basis until.
