HOW TO INCREASE THE WORK YOU DO WITHOUT SACRIFICING TECHNIQUE
GETTING HUGE STRENGTH GAINS WITH WAVE LOADING - BEHIND THE BLOCK
Accumulation block is all about time under tension and density. We can achieve higher outputs if we sustain longer bouts of time under tension with heavier loads in a fixed period of time.
The caveat here is the increased tension coincides with an increased potential for breakdown of technique. Poor technique could result in injury.
Therein lies the challenge: how do you do create more time under tension without a technical breakdown?
CLUSTER TRAINING - BEHIND THE BLOCK
The goal of Wave Loading is to manipulate the patterns of loading to increase our strength output. In this post, learn how a systematic loading program design – called Wave Loading – leads to strength gains.
THIS MONTH'S TRAINING IS GERMAN VOLUME TRAINING
What is cluster training? Normally when we train, we do a series of reps in a set and then rest. For example, in a 5x5 program, we do 5 reps and then rest for 2-3 minutes. Then we do 4 more sets with 5 reps in each set. We rest 2-3 minutes in between each set to maximize strength going into each set.
German Volume Training (GVT) is simply 10 sets of 10 reps using big compound movements. The movements we’re using are back squat, snatch grip RDL, and trapbar deadlift. Learn more in this blog post.
