I have recently come across some information about Jay Schroeder, primarily from the Wannagetfast forum. His ideas seem a bit far out but interesting. Supposedly he also uses impulse technology. What do you think of his methods, is there any merit or research backing long duration isometrics, especially the claim that moving as slowly as possible activates fast twitch muscle fibers? Can it be a good adjunct to inertial training? Thanks.

just one of several research papers on iso's done in japan http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?artid=2278867
get what you want out of it.  I'm not aware of research that proves its effectiveness conclusively.
but for a good generic read try this http://www.higher-faster-sports.com/isometrics.html

I'm not a big believer believing what research produces whole sum useful information.  specific information...yes...but practical? I prefer pioneering and train blazing.  You go with what you know and discard ideas and attitudes as you fine new stuff.  the only important thing is weather or not the new stuff works practically.  On the research side I've even co-authored a paper which proved impulse training ineffectual as well as many that prove its impressive effectiveness.  what?  what really matters is actual performance on the field and the satisfied attitude of the people being trained.  do they perform better or not.  Impulse people perform better...that's that.

Mr Schroeder is a pioneer...he discovers and creates new ways of doing things.  some work ...some don't.  his people perform better.  

bear in mind it is not what you do but how you do it.  its not isos that work but how you apply them in your mix of training. 

I've always believed that plyos were a form of inertial exercise and applied properly can be a great adjunct to  impulse training.

gotta catch a plane so i'll continue this Monday.

Thanks. I'll check the research and I'm looking forward to the info you will post on Monday.

continuing from Thursday...

"Supposedly he also uses impulse technology"  there is no supposedly ...it is a key part of hit training.  bear in mind it's not that he uses impulse training... but how.   for that you'll need to contract with (that means contacting him first   http://www.evosport.us/index.htm) him for training at one of his facilities.   He does get results.
 
There are many things that are a good adjunct to Impulse Training.   I happen to favor plyos and ground drills.   but again its not the drill.... its the way the drill is done. 
 
When it comes to 'what will Impulse training give you' its not complex...balance, power, quickness, anaerobic endurance, and what ever appropriate hypertrophy you desire.  But, again, only if you follow our tried and trued guidelines and then at your own discretion get as creative as you want.

I can't tell you how many athletes have increased their performance (pros) with just our STAR stabilization program.
