|Dear Professor Verkhoshansky,
What you think about the combination of different types of muscle work regimens in the same set? I saw this method in the book “Los Métodos Modernos de Musculación” by Gilles Cometti. Example of the “Super-Pletnev” method in the bench press:
6 repetitions eccentric only with 90% of 1RM, 5 minutes of rest
6 repetitions in plyometric with 60% of 1RM, 5 minutes of rest
6 isometrics with 70% and finally
2x6 repetitions in concentric with 50% of 1RM
Repeat all 1-4 times
It seems that the author was based on studies of:
Pletnev, B. (1975): The effectiveness of different regimens of muscle work with equivalent loads. Theory and Practice of Physical Culture, 10, 20-23.
Pletnev, B. (1976): The dynamics of muscle strength using different combined work regimens. Theory and Practice of Physical Culture, 9, 19-22.
Hakkinen, K.; and Komi, P. (1981): Effect of combined concentric and excentric muscle work regimens on maximal strength development. Journal of Human Movement Studies, 7, 33-44.
What you think about this idea? Any comments?
Thank you very much!
