Just reading the latest article on T-Nation about HIT training (article is by Ellington Darden who has just written a new book on HIT)
The article includes the following statement
'But most athletes and coaches try to perform their strength training in a way that simulates their sport—which means fast, explosive lifting and lowering, little of which transfers to their sport. Worse, it can confuse performance through negative transfer and it's dangerous. As I was saying earlier, if your competition is doing the same thing, then no one is getting an advantage and the best athletes and coaches still win. '
This is counter to most things I read on here. Wondered if anyone has any comments...
