Has anyone done the slow twitch squat protocol that Pavel has written about and also done explosive swings for more fast twitch work in the same cycle?
I guess this is the plan:Please provide a link to the article or book you mentioned. Thanks.
From part 3: https://www.strongfirst.com/how-to-build-your-slow-fibers-part-iii/Pavel said:If your doc does not allow heavy lifting at all, he might okay kettlebell swings plus ST goblet squats. Swings enable one to generate and withstand high forces even with a light weight. In the goblet squat, once you hit failure, descend rock bottom, wedge your elbows between your knees, and pry. Then park the bell and sit back on the deck. A powerful method for hard living types with high mileage.
Personally I don't really "get" slow twitch training. Does this kind of training help you with endurance events, such as a marathon or max pushups?
