Im a bit confused about one thing. Hypertrophy is an increase in size of the muscle cells, so, we don't actually get more muscle cells as a response to exercise then, or..?

Thanks for another informative article!

"Increase in the amount of contractile material supported by each nucleus." is the text book answer. So no we dont get any additional cells

Excellent article, been on a similar program for just over a week now but unfortunately walked away with a pulled ham. My own fault though for A. pushing too hard, and B. not stretching. My flexibility is unsafe, although this is the first time i have pulled my strings. Thanks Will.

Sorry to hear about the injury. As you probably know Justin mentioned he was doing the program, hes saying he can now run without fear of pulls, but hes a PC strength and Mobility nut.

Also Don ive seen your posts on other forums where i dare not tread, keep trying to enlighten your doing a good job!

For an already lean individual - this would make an excellent "pre season" training program... MFT would fall comfortably into an off season also!

1 max effort upper, 1 max effort lower and 1-2 energy system based GPP sessions for on season maintenance AMIRITE?

I begun this program the day it was posted on the forums, and i was egar to post a review of what i thought of it straight away, however i thought giving it a fair trial run of 4 weeks would be fair.

After having been on muscles for traceurs, Wills other program for 3 months, i thought it time for a change, i had a much better base strength to play around with, I was injury free and was egar to get my speed up.

I find the program to be fantastic, my favourite day being the linear speed day, my sprinting speed has imrpoved DRAMATICALLY over the last month, with a slight change of rep/sets and a new exercise selection from MFT my strength in the weights room has progressed fantastically.

However numbers arnt everything to some, and rightly so, along side the program i have been training parkour 2 times per week, I can honestly say every aspect of my parkour has imrpoved, from the simple horizontal jump to my strength at landings, i feel i have literally more control over my body.

I enjoy this program and enjoy progressing,

Nutrition wise ive been taking simple sugars (maltodextrin+dextrose) pre and post workout alongside a predigested rapid protein (hydrolised whey), as the article reccomends i supplement creatine i get plenty of sleep, and eating well have all brought me to a stronger faster person.

I reccomend this program to traceurs.

I like the article Will. I gotta say I disagree with your periodization, simply because the ability for any beginner to heal from that is suspect. Also, looking at threads and post from most of the folks in this forum, we are looking at a high endurance athlete with little maximal conventional training. They definitely use maximal strength in a more functional sense. Attempting to do maximal strength lifts in the gym without a solid few years of lifting under their belts.... your asking for injuries.

Like I said I like the article. I just see trouble for anyone who has little or no max strength conventional lifting.

arghh you said "functional"!

Trainingty the program is based around conjugate style periodisation.

Most high school athlete off season S+C programs consist of 4 days of lifting with 2-3 conditioning sessions thrown in to boot.

If anything some may argue that weight training frequency isnt high enough. Two full body sessions should be fine for the average traceur. I choose 5RM because ive found its the heaviest most unskilled lifters can go before form goes to hell. 5RM should be enough to control for most trainers provided the have a spotter.

Additionally most traceurs have gone through an anatomical adaptation phase of doing mainly bodyweight exercises prior to trying this progam. As far as ive seen most traceurs do almost no max strength training, but max strength is so crucially important to overall athletic development, power and endurance.

max effort work should be the "nuts and bolts" of any strength-training program

Ive been on a muscle building workout for about 4 weeks now. High weights and reps and it seems to be ok for judo but after 12 weeks I will probably switch to a strength building workout. See which one I like better.
