Ramping up my training volume, especially on weak areas and without sacrificing intensity, is doing me a lot of good.
I've gotten a lot of questions about squat periodization lately. Here's an explanation of what I do and why.
For aesthetic and strength-building reasons, I've been doing higher reps in my training these days.
My volume was a lot lower this week, but I still got in some quality work on the squat and bench.
My training volume this week was the highest it's been in a while, so I may have to take a deload week.
I've got a sore elbow, but overall it was a good week of preparation for my upcoming meet, which is only two weeks away now.
I’ve managed much better accumulation of volume this week, and not at the expense of intensity either. I’m happy with everything I’m doing and looking to continue the current trend.
if you could somehow know, with certainly, what the fully-realized you looked, felt, and performed like, how different would that be from the current you?
The high-rep kettlebell work I've been doing to prepare for the Tactical Strength Challenge has lowered my overall volume, so I plan to bring it back up in coming weeks.
Despite a few days off, my training went well this week, with some progress in my back squat and front squat. My overall fitness also seems to be improving.
Today I'll discuss two important principles that inform my training, especially in my recent programming.
This week I entered a high-volume phase in hopes I can maintain or increase maximal strength and also improve body composition.
