Moves us back to FaCT and 80 % 20 % . So great to see, that more official places go for the same idea :
" Th e distribution of the training should be in
the proportions of 75% to 80% of volume at LSD and 10% to 15% of training as HIT and the balance between the extremes."
Now the next step will be to accept the fact that there is no such thing like LT and that power is great but has to be moved into content with physiological ideas so we know what team member we stress in the5 - 20 % HIT. Thanks Rob nice reading and it supports you work with FaCT and the LSD . May still be hard to sell it to your club members.
