I thought that title might lure you in. Yes, they are long lost workouts, but only to me. I’m sure there are lots of other copies out there 🙂
But still, very cool. I found the a folder that Dan gave me back in ’95 when I briefly trained under him.
It’s interesting to see the similarities between these workouts and Trey Hardee’s workouts done under Mario Sategna (one of Dan’s former athletes). Not sure if the similarities are due to Dan’s influence or University of Texas protocols…but interesting non-the-less.
Looking at these now makes me wonder what he would change…given that these workouts are almost 20 years old. Here’s a few questions that come to my mind:
1) Would he still prescribe 15 minute Fartlek’s to his decathletes? He has spoken about alternate cardio training (like circuits).
2) Would he really only do one Special Endurance workout a week? Especially for a Decathlete…where competing a near 100% over 8-12 hours is commonplace.
3) How does he progress is lifting maxes?
