RE: Jama Aden Coaching Philosophy
i just read the Kitcher article and had a couple questions about the weight/strength training work they do. he says they don't have 'proper weights' in the gym, so i doubt they are doing traditional squats, deadlifts, hang cleans, etc. so what kind of weight work do they do? i can imagine with the 'concrete blocks' he describes they could do a lot of single-leg stuff (single-leg squats, single-leg deadlifts, single-leg step ups on to a box, etc). also, do they do weights/strength training as part of a circuit routine, or do it in a more traditional lifting manner (example - 3 sets of 6 reps of a particular exercise, then move to the next one).

also, what is Aden's take on plyometrics? do his guys do any, and if so, what is the routine like? if not, why? (perhaps fear of injury)

thanks in advance if you can provide any info.
