How To Program “Fatigue” Singles

Programming singles after a top rep set is nothing new. People have been doing that for who knows how long, and it is something I have been doing for years now, and other coaches did that well before me. But as of recently, this tool has developed into more of a system within my model of programming. And thanks to Wascar Carpio, he has coined it a “fatigue” single. The biggest issue with singles is when your model of programming is not designed around their implementation, for a multitude of reasons, they can be fairly disruptive to the overall training protocol when you start adding them in. I discuss the why of this in detail in my recent videos on Powerlifting Now, but in my latest YouTube video, I wanted to specifically touch on my current system of programming fatigue singles. I briefly touch on the reasons they can be disruptive, but more so take a statistical look into Wascar’s training leading into Powerlifting America Nationals. I detail the pretty profound difference we saw in average intensity and total tonnage block to block as we transitioned from fatigue singles to prioritizing singles first. As well as I go over 3 different models of implementing fatigue singles over a full 3 block macro cycle. Click the link above to view!

If you have been following me for any decent time, you know that for every lifter I have compete, I do a post highlighting their meet and some coaching insight from my lens. But for Preston, who just competed at the Arnold Pro, an Instagram caption I am not sure would do justice. So I made a full YouTube video of me detailing my process post meet as a coach and the reflection over his training. I look into the variables present when I first started coaching him, the approach we took initially and modifications we made to training, technical changes we implemented for each lift, and what went right versus what went wrong within prep for the Arnold. I then take a look at what insight I was able to gain from his 14 week prep, changes we will be implementing moving forward, and an overview of his current training block. As well as a discussion I had with Marcellus Williams regarding Ashton Rouska and JamaRR Royster’s training to find similarities and comparisons to be able to lay a framework and confirm or deny the directions I was planning on going.

Tempo Bench Press: The Most Impactful Movement Constraint Variation

Tempo Bench Press: The Most Impactful Movement Constraint – CLICK HERE

In my February video on Powerlifting Now, I take a 45 minute deep dive into how we can use movement and programming constraints to help fix and align technique, rather than the traditional methods of internal and external cueing. But within that, in my opinion there is one movement constraint variation that stands above the rest…and that is tempo bench press. In one way or another, the vast majority of lifters I coach perform tempo bench press in some manner within their programming. Some intermittently, as a way to re-align some of their internal cueing and processing with how they perform bench press. While others have tempo bench press programmed at all times throughout the year as a constraint to manage their technique, typically those with higher frequency. In my latest YouTube video, I cover why that is, and how I feel more lifters can benefit from tempo bench press than any other variation of any lift. I cover a couple simple tips I use to get the most out of this variation. And then lastly I detail some programming basics on how to effectively implement tempo bench within a lifter’s program to best set them up for success. Click the link above to view!
