Russian Olympic Dominance

Source: http://www.allouteffort.com/2012/07/russian-olympic-domination.html

There was a time when Russians and the Eastern Bloc were dominating the Olympics.

Outside of the controversy of steroids aside, they had made one significant change that challenged all traditional thoughts on exercise. Since then every other country has adopted this secret into training their Olympic athletes.

For a long time a huge part of training athletes were to make them run for a long time at a slow pace.

The Russians had replaced long distance running for short sprints. It didn't take long for this information to get literally smuggled out. Since then elite athletic training has never been the same. Even for marathon runners.

Makes you wonder why there is so much slow long mindless cardio conditioning training for MMA and BJJ.
