Another adjustment that can be made in a team setting would be to perform all Dynamic Effort Movements on the same day. Essentailly an undulating load parameter system with three total-body days. This is similar to a Light-Heavy-Medium intensity wave only using Zatsiorsky's methods.

On page six in The Science and Practice of Strength Training, author Vladimir Zatsiorsky posits that maximal power output occurs at approximately 30% of maximal velocity and 50% of maximal load. I’m in love with page six, and simultaneously dumbfounded by its mathematical exactitude.

Now to get back on track, according to Vladimir Zatsiorsky, performing these maximal effort style lifts is the most efficient way to improve both intramuscular and intermuscular coordination: “the method of maximal effort is considered superior for improving both intramuscular and intermuscular coordination.”1

The dynamic effort method is one of three methods documented by Dr. Vladimir Zatsiorsky and popularized by Louie Simmons. The basic premise is that in order to create tension you must either lift as heavy as possible for that repetition range, lift submaximal weights as fast as possible, or lift submaximal weights for as many repetitions as possible.
