I've written a lot about my application of it in the thread 'Increasing Strength' and elsewhere on this forum. The basic idea being to push hard for 2-3 weeks and then to do active rest for 1-2 weeks. The theory here being that for more advanced trainee's longer and more prolonged loading periods are necessary to produce the type of stress needed to force an adaption.
Most of my training life has centred around this type of loading/unloading.
