Operation Atlas: Increase Your Power

Dear Reader,

Today marked day 1 of the next phase of our athletic development programme at Galatasaray. I change the emphasis of my programmes every 4 weeks to keep things interesting and to limit the ‘plateau factor’, or staleness that occurs without such variations. So, last week we came to the end of a very successful development period that I called Operation Bulletproof Monk, the emphasis on base strength development and injury prevention (based upon individual player screenings), and today was the start of Operation Atlas. Operation Atlas sees a progression of strength training, with more of an emphasis on maximum strength development with the start of a plyometric thread.

Plyometric drills are really important in explosive sports because they help develop a critically important variable called rate of force development. RFD refers to how quickly you can generate power. It is the steepness of the force-time curve. Plyometrics help develop this aspect of explosiveness.

"Depth jumps are performed by standing on a stool of a certain height. You then place one foot out in front and step off the stool before landing on both feet at the same time. The aim is to land on the forefoot and then jump as high upwards as possible immediately upon landing."

So, this week, I thought I’d give you a bit of an insight into one of the plyometric drills that we’ll be completing during Operation Atlas. It’s a pretty simple but really effective drill called Depth Jumping. Depth jumps, when performed well, can dramatically increase power output and vertical jump height. Now, just pause for a moment and think about how many sports would benefit from improvements in these domains!

Depth jumps were first developed in the old Soviet Union in the late 1970s. They were originally called shock training drills because they aim to develop explosive concentric force output by stimulating the stretch-shorten cycle (SSC), i.e. getting a quick stretch on the muscles and tendons to precede a rapid shortening contraction.

Depth jumps are performed by standing on a stool of a certain height (usually between 0.5 – 1.0 m). You then place one foot out in front and then step off the stool before landing on both feet at the same time. The aim is to land on the forefoot (heels never touching the ground) and then jump as high upwards as possible immediately upon landing. The aim is to maximise the jump height but minimise the time spent on the ground, preferably less than 1 second.

The volume of training should be low, particularly for inexperienced athletes. This is because of the high load on the Achilles and patellar tendons that the SSC has. Inexperienced athletes should perhaps start with 3 sets of 8-10 jumps, twice per week. This can be built up to 4 sets of 10-12, two to three times per week. The problem can be that these jumps often don’t feel hard and so the temptation is to increase the volume too quickly before the tendon has had time to adaptively strengthen. The emphasis really is on quality not quantity.

The other thing to remember is that depth jumps should only be used in periodised blocks, never all year round, otherwise your body becomes accustomed to them and they lose their performance benefit.

Depth jumps can provide you with another tool to help you leap above your opposition so have a play around with them. Next week, we’ll have a quick look at the controversial subject of “The Core”

Until then, stay robust, amigos!

The Drop Depth Jump

The depth jump is a plyometric exercise. Plyometric exercises work on the principle that a concentric muscular contraction is much stronger if it immediately follows an eccentric contraction of the same muscle. (Eccentric muscular action occurs when a muscle lengthens under load – eg the lowering phase of a biceps curl.

Plyometric Stair Climbing Workouts: Power Development

To improve lower body power, plyometrics can be used in stair workouts. To do this you can use single, double, and triple hops with either both or one leg at a time. You can use side hops, side-to-side hops, transverse hops and so on. You can even use eccentric hops.

“Don’t cry for me Arhentina...” 02

“Don’t cry for me Arhentina...”

In the recent years ... decades actually (since the 80’s), I have advocated a new approach to swim training – a new concept called "BEST", which is an abbreviation for 'Biomechanical Efficiency Swimming Test '.

The main requirement of the BEST formula was related to the ability to count, without errors, the number of swimming strokes. Recently, a variety of devices (wristwatches) appeared on the market, and they address this need very well.

In these conditions, I believe that 'my struggle' to promote the BEST concept should end, and this article is the last on this topic on my blog.

I am absolutely sure that 21st century technology and knowledge to conduct training scientifically, using computers, will very soon be available.

I hope I still have several years left, to be able to witness these ‘dreams’ come true.

I wish you success and I’d like to end with the famous phrase: 'to hear only of good things'...

prof. Mircea Olaru, 17.09.2010, Bucharest, Romania

Please open here and here...:

Dear Sirs,

I am 74 years old, 60 of which were spent near the swimming pool, about 50 years of coaching with some modest successes... I've become interested by your activity, which I think can become a model for other organizations too...

I'm going to trust the discernment you must have, after so many successes, and I want to tell you about an idea that has no material end, and is not meant to bring a profit, but it can clarify the approach in reaching performance in swimming and other sports as well

Many years ago, around 1980, I've developed a new concept for swimming efficiently; initially, I started from a famous ancient quote 'festina lente' - and then I noticed that it works well for competitive swimming too.

As I was behind the Communist 'Iron Curtain' that prevented any contact with the outside world, my idea didn't reach the West at that time; it was completed in 1983 and published in the Magazine for Physical Education and Sports (no. 3/1983) in an article entitled 'The Biomechanical Efficiency Swimming Test (BEST)'. The article had a simple point - the efficiency of a swimmer is given by adding the number of strokes he needs to swim 50 meters with the number of seconds taken by this swim.

Going forward on this idea, I've tried to apply it to training children this way - as I was given the opportunity: I've asked them to swim as fast as they could but with the fewest number of strokes; surprisingly the children started to swim better, and ended up winning swimming competitions.

Then I had the proof that my concept had a practical utility, and I started to promote it... In 1995 I've discovered that American coaches (Hines, Hanulla, Maglischo, and recently also Bob Bowman / M. Phleps) had also independently arrived at the same conclusions. However, my formula is can be particularized for every swimmer, by taking his or her physical characteristics into account (see attachment, BEST definitions)

All this time, I've always been aware by the fact that the counting of the strokes had to be done automatically somehow... I tried to contact important companies, such as Speedo, in this respect, with little success, but last year, in UK, a company launched the Pool Mate watch that advertised this feature. I purchased a watch immediately, but was a little disappointed by its stroke counting accuracy and consistence...

Finally, I'm waiting that either Pool Mate improves and becomes the watch I've dreamed of since the 80's (accurate stroke counting), or that others understand my concept, its usefulness and the need to have such a tool for stroke counting - of course other features can be added such as wireless transmission of data to the coach, allowing real time feedback, etc.

With such support, the BEST concept could reach its true potential, and the training could become more scientific and better focused on optimal results.

Thank you,


iata traducerea: "Exercitiile de vaslire si timp sunt un mod excelent prin care inotatorul poate sa isi gestioneze lungimea vaslirii, si sa inoate la cel mai inalt nivel de eficienta. Exercitiul nostru pentru Delfin presupune inotarea Distantei de 50 m si Numararea vaslirilor; la sfarsit se compara timpul cu numarul de vasliri - si scopul este de a avea numarul vaslirilor cu 10 mai mic decat timpul in secunde: daca inotatorului inoata distanta in 30 de secunde, numarul de vasliri ar trebui sa fie 20."

Michael Phelps: 18 vasliri, 28.2 secunde

Definiţii BEST, Les Definitions du BEST,

The BEST Definitions, Der BEST – Definitionen

!/. Tehnica corecta inseamna eficienta de miscare in apa… “testarea eficientei biomecanice la inot”(best) se calculeaza astfel: adun ‘timpul’(‘t’) cu ‘vaslirile’(‘v’) suma lor o scad dintr-o valoare constanta (‘k’)(aleasa aleator = ‘100’) + indicele personal de alunecare (ipa). adica - { 100+ipa } – { timp + vasliri } = ...... p.best

1. La tehnique corecte de la nage implique l’efficience du mouvement dans l’eau.

’’Tester l’efficience / l’efficacite biomecanique dans l’eau’’ [ The Biomechanical Efficiency Swimming Test – B.E.S.T. ....] ce calcule comme suit:

- aditioner le temps (’T’) au les mouvement (par 50m) (’M’), la somme se deduit d’une valeur constante (’K’)[choisie aleatoire, par ex. = 100 point] + l’Indice Personel de Glisse (I.P.G.) c’este a dire, la formule:

[100 + IPG ] – [ ’T’ + ’M’] = ...

offre le meilleur resultat, (points BEST).

1/The corect swim-technique means the efficiency of the movements in the water; it can be calculated by this way: add the number of the seconds and the number of the stroke-cicles (by 50m) and this sume will be extracted from the other constant sume provided from adition of the one constant value (K) (100) plus the Index of the personal Gliding (IPG)

!/. *Die korrekte Technik setzt eine effiziente Fortbewegung im Wasser voraus...”Testen der biomechanischen Effizienz beim Schwimmen” (best)

Diese wird wie folgt berechnet: wir addieren die zwei Werte (Zeit und Züge); die Summe wird aus einer Konstante „k” abgezogen ( „k” wird per Zufall ausgewählt = „100”) + persönlicher Gleitindex (pgi).

D.h. – { 100+pgi } – { Zeit + Züge } =....... p.best

2/ Obiectivitatea conceptului si a formulei ‘b.e.s.t.’ rezida din urmatoarea logica: ‘adun doua marimi, (timpul / ’t’ + vaslirile / ’v’) care au sens descrescator, - dupa care, le scad din constanta {‘100’ + ‘ipa’} si obtin (facil + repede / mental way ...) valoarea prestatiei in apa’

2. La logique du BEST et son objectivite:

J’additionne deux valeurs, deux quantites , le temps T. et le mouvement M. (des cicles de bras – pour Libre et pour le Dos 2 bras alternative, pour Brasse et pour Papillon une cicle concomitente, seulmant), les valeur qui ont un sens (desirable...!) decroissants et apres je deduis de la valeur constante (anterieur calcule) [ ’100 + IPG’] et j’obtiens (tres facile et vite / by mental way...) la valeur de la prestation dans l’eau.

2/The objectivity of the ‘best formula’ results from this new exercise of logic: ‘we add two value (time+stroke), this values have their sense descendent (!)…, and, after we substrate this sum from one constant value (accidentally (k) = 100 + ipg points)’.

in this mod we can obtain (very easy, by mental way) the supreme value of the swimming efficiency.

2/ Die Objektivität des Konzeptes und der Formel „b.e.s.t.” baut auf die folgende Logik auf: „ wir addieren zwei Gröβen, (Zeit + Züge), die einen absteigenden Sinn verzeichnen. Diese werden nachher von der Konstante { „100” + „pgi”} abgezogen. Das Ergebnis (einfach + schnell / mental way...) stellt den Wert der Leistung im Wasser dar.

3/“indicele personal de alunecare” (i.p.a. / este ca un kard-annual) ‘L.’ + (k) – (kgr. + Q), in care - ‘L.’ = lungimea maxima a corpului / pluta ‚(k)’= o constantă cu valoare 100 puncte ‘Kgr.’ = greutatea in kilograme / + ‘Q.’ = diametrul/cm. subaxilar in expiratie profunda – the “index of personal gliding “ (i.p.g.)

3. L’indice de la Glisse dans l’eau (IPG) este une valeur constante, comme un card banquare, qui le calcule annuellement:

’L.’ + (encore une ’K’ de 100 points, aleatoire...!) la somme se deduit d’une autre somme resulte par addition de ’Kgr.’ + ’Q.’, c’est a dire:

[ L. + (K) ] – [ Kgr. + Q ] =

la valeur anuelle plus constante de IPG en points....

’L.’ – longuer maximale du corp entierre

(la possision fondamentale de nage - planche de flotation du corp sur le ventre ou sur le dos verrifie sur terrre);

(k) – une ciffre constante, aleatoire, d’une valeur de 100 points;

’Kgr.’ - Kilogrames du corp, sur terre;

’Q.’ – le diametre en cm. de la cage thoracique en expir profonde, et le resultat de cette formule que l’on nomme – Indice Personel de Glisse (IPG) dans l’eau, avec ses point et d’une valeur constante, annuelle.

3/The index personal of gliding (ipg) is lake a ‘credit card’ (the validity is minimum one year): with this ipg we can organize the series of the race in perfect ‘faire-play’ (indifferent of the sex or age) the competitors with same or appropriate values will be introduce in the same series …the periodical calcul of this ipg formula is found with regarding to the hydrodynamics principle (reynolds+froude),

so: ‘’from the value of the maximum longer of the body (ventral float position)(L.) / in additions with another accidentally value constant (k=100), we will substrate the sum of the nr. of kgr. (weight) with the Q. (nr. of cm. of the circumference of the upper thorax in deep expiration). ‘L.’+(k) – ( ‘kgr.’ + ‘q.’)

3/ „Der persönliche Gleitindex” (p.g.i./ ist wie eine Kreditkarte, die 1 Jahr gültig ist (kard-annual)). „L” = die maximale Körperlänge / ventral float position; „k” = eine Konstante mit dem Wert von 100 Punkten; „kgr” = das Gewicht in Kilogramm / + „Q” = Durchmesser/cm des oberen Brustkorbabschnittes bei tiefer Ausatmung

4/ aplicabilitatea ‘annual kard-(ului)’(ipg – index of personal gliding ), indiferent de sex si chiar de varsta subiectilor…, este data de faptul ca criteriile alese, pentru folosirea sa ca instrument de departajare / organizare a intrecerilor de inot sportiv , sunt cele induse in selectia naturala:

# cu cat un corp este mai lung (l.),

# cu cat un corp este mai usor, (gr.)

# cu cat un corp este mai ingust (q.)

cu atat mai eficient pluteste, aluneca sau inainteaza !

4. L’application (calculation) annuelle du kard IPG –non peliee du sex, genne, et de l’age du suject (!), sont donnes comme une unique critere pour departager / organiser les eventuellle competitions (des series avec une real ’fraire-play’) de concurs de ’excelence tehnique de nage’ par 50m, car ce sont les criteres induits par la selection naturelle:

- plus que le corp est long .....

- plus que le corp est leger....

- plus que le corp est etroit ....

cet corp peut glisse et avance plus bien, plus efficace !

4/The valability of the index personal of gliding (ipg) results from that – all criteria selected to make the series for the challenge was selected from the normal natural selection:

when the longer of the body is big…

when the weight of the body is light...

when the frontal section of the body is small

the float, the gliding and the swimming speed will be more efficiency to advance better with one correct technique !

4/ Die Gültigkeit des „kard-annual” (pgi – persönlicher Gleitindex), unabhängig von Geschlecht oder Alter der Angewiesenen..., ist darauf zurückzuführen: die Kriterien, die ausgewählt wurden, um zu bestimmen, inwiefern die „annual kard” als Instrument zur Unterscheidung von Leistungen oder Veranstaltung von Schwimm-Wettkämpfen verwendet werden kann, gehen auf die natürliche Auswahl zurück:

je länger ein Körper ist (l.),

je leichter ein Körper ist (kgr),

je schmaler ein Körper ist (q.),

desto effizienter wird er schwimmen, gleiten oder sich im Wasser fortbewegen.

Numararea ciclurilor de vaslire se poate face in mod liber (vizual) sau cu un ‘counter’ mecanic / electronic (?!) care sa simplifice contabilizarea mentala si deci a unor eventuale erori (variante) prof. M.Olaru, 2005.

.. asta-i un 'bonus'...
cea mai interesanta inventie legata de apa sau , mai bine zis, de inot:

Also as a 'bonus'....:
exactly the same principle but applied to travel on wheels on the ground, the move may be the author of a new propulsion, like 'bike'.

For the opinion of fans 'inventions and innovations' ... that I was a little tired, "At the 'poor man' ... deh, you know ...." !

Tot ca 'bonus'....:
exact pe acelas principiu,dar aplicat la deplasarea pe roti, pe sol, aceasta miscare poate fi autoarea unei noi propulsii , gen 'bicicleta'.

Sfaturile bioterapeutei Djuna Davidajvili, pentru fiecare antrenor.....

Eugenia Davidasvili, cunoscuta azi in intreaga lume ca Djuna (Giuna), s-a nascut pe 22 iunie 1949, in Georgia.

S-a afirmat atat prin eficienta tratamentelor sale, cat si prin acuratetea diagnosticelor, testele efectuate la Washington Research Center aratand o acuratete de 97% in diagnosticare.

In prezent, Djuna detine o clinica extrem de solicitata in Moscova. Djuna Davitasvili este un nume foarte cunoscut, cu puternice rezonante speciale pentru milioane de oameni.

Dar nu despre persoana sau personalitatea vestitei vindecatoare vom vorbi mal jos, ci vom reproduce - fara comentarii - o serie de sugestii si retete pentru terapia (sau profilaxia) diverselor afectiuni ce macina astazi lumea vie. Sunt, de fapt, reguli de viata general valabile, bazate exclusiv pe ceea ce ne ofera natura.

Alimentatia sta la baza sanatatii, prin modul in care stim sau nu sa o facem prin prisma ratiunii, si nu doar a pornirilor instinctuale. Djuna identifica trei categorii mari de alimente, dupa cum urmeaza:

1. carne, peste, zeama de carne, oua, fasole (bob), ciuperci, nuci, floarea soarelui (seminte), vinete.

2. verdeata, fructe, legume, pepene verde, pepene galben, vin sec, unt, grasimi, ulei vegetal.

3. paine, peste, fainoase, orez, cartofi, zahar, miere de albine.

Pentru curatirea organismului de substantele daunatoare acestuia, introduse in corp prin alimentatia curenta, trebuie sa se tina seama de cateva reguli usor de respectat.

- Categoria nr. 1 de alimente reprezinta acizii, iar categoria nr. 3 - bazele. Nu se amesteca la aceeasi masa alimentele din categoria 1 cu cele din categoria 3.

- Se pot combina categoria 1 cu categoria 2 sau categoria 2 cu categoria 3.

- Diferenta dintre mesele acide si cele bazice trebuie sa fie de minimum 3 ore.

- In curatirea organismului, lactatele sunt excluse.

- Nu se bea apa in timpul mesei, ci abia la o ora dupa aceasta.

- Tot cu o ora mai tarziu se pot consuma si fructe, intrucat ele se digera mai repede decat restul alimentelor.

- Pe langa alimentele enumerate mai sus, dimineata si seara se consuma cate un catel de usturoi.

- Curatirea organismului se face, de preferinta, in luna iunie.

Curatirea limfei si a sangelui

Dimineata, se beau 100 ml de apa rece, in care s-a dizolvat sare amara, atat cat sa fie baubila. Se prepara un suc din portocale (900 ml), grapefruit (900 ml) si lamaie (200 ml). La o ora dupa ce s-a baut solutia de sare amara, se beau 100 ml din sucul respectiv si 100 ml de apa fiarta si racita. Apoi, aceeasi cantitate (100 ml suc si 100 ml apa racita) se bea la fiecare jumatate de ora, pana se termina cantitatea de 2 litri din fiecare. Tratamentul dureaza 3 zile, perioada cand nu se mananca si nu se bea nimic altceva.

Curatirea ficatului

Timp de 2 zile, se beau cate 5-6 pahare de suc de mar. In a treia zi, bolnavul se culca la ora 19 pe partea dreapta, cu o sursa de caldura (perna electrica) sub ficat. Se prepara un amestec din 3 linguri de ulei de masline si 3 linguri zeama de lamaie, care se bea din sfert in sfert de ora, pe durata a circa 2 ore. Cantitatea totala trebuie sa fie de 300 ml ulei de masline si 300 ml zeama de lamaie. A doua zi de dimineata se face clisma, care va elimina toate reziduurile de la ficat.

Curatirea rinichilor (calculi renali)

Pe parcursul unei saptamani, nu se mananca decat pepene verde cu paine neagra. In ziua a saptea, intre orele 2 si 3 (noaptea), se face o baie calda, cu corpul cufundat in apa pana la gat si se mananca pepene verde rece. Dupa circa o ora, vor fi eliminate pietrele. Eventual, procedura se repeta dupa doua saptamani.

Curatirea articulatiilor de saruri (spondiloza, artrita, poliartrita)

Se fierb 5 g foi de dafin in 300 ml apa, timp de 5 minute, dupa care se tin intr-un termos, 3-4 ore. Pe parcursul a 12 ore, se consuma lichidul, luandu-se cate o lingurita. Tratamentul dureaza 3 zile, insotit de alimentatie de regim, dar o singura data pe an.

„Elixirul tineretii” (indicat in special persoanelor care au probleme legate de inima si de circulatia sangelui)

Se piseaza foarte bine 300 g usturoi, intr-o piulita de lemn. 200 g din cantitate se scot de la fundul vasului si se pun intr-un borcan de sticla, impreuna cu 200 ml alcool de 90º. Se inchide bine si se tine 10 zile la macerat. Tratamentul va dura 11 zile, cu o jumatate de ora inaintea fiecarei mese, preparatul luandu-se in cate 20 ml lapte rece, dupa cum urmeaza:

ziua 1 - 2 picaturi dimineata (D), 2 picaturi la pranz (P), 2 picaturi la cina (C);
ziua 2 - 4 D, 5 P, 6 C;
ziua 3 - 7 D, 8 P, 9 C;
ziua 4 - 10 D, 11 P, 12 C;
ziua 5 - 13 D, 14 P, 15 C;
ziua 6 - 15 D, 14 P, 13 C;
ziua 7 - 12 D, 11 P, 10 C;
ziua 8 - 9 D, 8 P, 7 C;
ziua 9 - 6 D, 5 P, 4 C;
ziua 10 - 3 D, 2 P, 1 C;
ziua 11 - 25 D, 25 P, 25 C.

O reteta relativ mai simpla se bazeaza pe amestecul obtinut din 500 g usturoi pisat, cu zeama de la 24 de lamai. Se pune intr-un borcan, se acopera cu tifon si se tine 24 de zile, amestecandu- se periodic. Se consuma cate o lingura la o jumatate de pahar cu apa, seara, inainte de culcare.

Anexite, fibrom, boli vaginale

Se toaca marunt ceapa, se pune intr-un tifon si se unge acest tampon cu unt nesarat. Se introduce in vagin, noaptea. Acelasi procedeu se poate face cu untura de gasca.

Boli de plamani (tuberculoza, bronsita etc.)

Se face un amestec din 500 g miere de albine, 5 capatani de usturoi, pisate si 5 lamai tocate in masina, amestec care se lasa 7 zile la macerat. Se consuma cate 4 linguri, seara, inainte de culcare, inghitindu-se foarte incet.


In fiecare dimineata se consuma o sfecla rosie coapta. Seara - o salata din sfecla rosie cruda, usturoi, morcov ras si ulei.


Se pun, intr-un borcan de 0,5 l, rame, intr-un strat de circa 2-3 cm grosime. Peste ele se toarna gaz sau alcool, atat cat sa le acopere cu 2 cm si se tin la soare 7 zile. Tratamentul propriu-zis consta in frectii pe zonele afectate cu gazul (alcoolul) respectiv.

Spondiloza (lumbago)

Se aplica la cald frunze de brusturi, cu partea nelucioasa pe locul dureros. O alta procedura - dintr-un amestec obtinut din ridiche neagra tocata marunt si o capatana de usturoi pisat, aplicat pe locul respectiv.

Scleroza vasculara cerebrala

Se rade marunt o lamaie si se amesteca cu macese (un pahar), rachitica (un pahar) si miere de albine (un pahar). Se iau cate 20-40 g inainte de masa. De asemenea, acelorasi bolnavi li se recomanda ceaiul din radacina de patrunjel sau 20 g scoarta de scorus fiarta in 0,5 l apa, timp de 2 ore si bauta zilnic, de 2-3 ori cate o lingura.

Varice (tromboflebita)

Timp de 20 de zile, se imbraca piciorul de la coapsa pana la talpa cu frunze de varza alba incalzite bine si unse o seara cu miere, o seara cu alcool de 90s, alternativ. Se infasoara cu prosoape calde si se doarme in acest fel.


O procedura simpla consta in taierea unui cartof in fasii (de forma supozitoarelor! ), care se ung cu ulei si se tin in anus cat mai mult. Acelasi lucru se poate face cu un catel de usturoi uns cu saliva si tinut pe toata perioada noptii.

Prostata, impotenta

E recomandabil sa se consume mult praz, precum si ceaiul de ghimpe si busuioc. Daca boala vine pe fond nervos, se pun circa 750 g gheata intr-un tifon impaturit in opt si se leaga. Compresa se tine un minut la baza creierului, un minut la inima si un minut pe organele genitale. Se repeta procedura de 4-5 ori pe zi.
