Developing A Weekly Training Split – CLICK HERE
In powerlifting we constantly talk about manipulating volume and intensity, the frequency of our lifts, and sets and rep ranges. But we rarely discuss how to optimize your weekly training split. There was a trend for a while that as long as the work got done, it didn’t matter when. I will be on the opposing side and disagree with that. How we structure our week greatly impacts fatigue management and the recovery between sessions. If we squat 3 days a week, how we systematically place those days within the weekly structure can have profound effects on how we recover between sessions and the performance standards we can predict day to day. In my latest YouTube video, I break down how to program your weekly training to structure your squat, bench, and deadlift sessions to optimize recovery and manage fatigue within a micro and mesocycle. I show the theoretical principles of how we induce fatigue and how we recover, and how switching around training days creates higher fatigue debt that compounds week to week. I show the optimal ways to structure training based on 2, 3, or 4 day lift frequency. And I discuss how lifts not only relate to each other within the weekly structure, but the possible crossover interference that lifts such as squat and deadlift have on each other. If you are looking to find consistency and predictability within your training, this is a must watch topic to create a system of training for you that can produce superior results.
