    I'm at a point in my career where I've had enough experience to see a few different training styles and am starting to look at switching up cycles, be it weight variance in implements or specific lifts as to much muscle confusion. I understand that over a long enough period of time the body adapts to a new stimulus and stops changing so my question is how long do we want to stay on a certain stimulus? I'm beginning to think after 3 weeks we become adapted and staying for another 3 weeks we really hone in the skills and strengths from the specific stimulus. Is a 6 week cycle to long? I've heard of 10 week cycles, I've also heard of an entire season staying with the same throwing and lifting cycle because the implements distance keeps increasing. Thoughts?
