Oli, Donnell here, Joe asked me to answer that...BASE is just another way of saying "intro" - for me that means I am shooting for the load to be manageable enough so that no reps are missed, and execution of technique can be the focus, typically between 80% and 85% relative intensity...LOAD for us means that the sets should be heavy enough that the athletes really need to bring it mentally and physically if they are going to complete them, typically between 85% and 97% relative either case, I allow our athletes to increase the weight if possible, but they know that if they see BASE, they must hit ALL reps for every set...they also know that if they see LOAD, there is a chance to increase the load, and if they do it is ok if the last rep or two of the last set or two gets missed...its my way of keeping the programs auto-regulated: i've seen too many kids get stronger much quicker than the books say theyre suppose to...i like to give them the option of going off the script of what i have programmed if they are capable...i use those terms so they know when it is ok to go for it, and when they should back off [UNLOAD]...if i didn't do that, and told them it was ok to go off script where possible, we'd probably have every kid burying themselves with a 1RM everyday.

I got the terms from Joe Kenn's Tier System [thats what I use]...i don't know if that's exactly what he intended with those terms, but that's what I developed for us, from his work.

And ps...Joe has come a long way with his squat...he finally hit 300 and I thought he was gonna throw a party...he's really sensitive about the subject, so please make sure and break his balls as much as possible about the subject!

Bench went really well, for the most part everyone went atleast five pounds with acouple of guys making really big jumps. We had nine weeks to prepare them before spring practice which for us starts next week. We broke that into 2 four week blocks, with second block taking us into testing and with the core lifts we went base, load, load, unload. During the unloaded week in the weight room we did all our field testing and this being the nineth week we just finished last night testing all core lifts. Back squat went well, overall the off-season was a success.

Everything is going really both coaching and with turns out I'm not as dumb as I thought I was...I hope your testing goes well, we are actually doing our testing this far so good, but squat is tom. thats the big one! We are having alot of success implementing superbars into the different programs, the variety of grips it provides has been a good change for both pressing and pulling movements.
