    Only for a top single to keep the skill. Volume work with deadlifts isn’t the best strategy to build the deadlift anyway, unless you enjoy doing that

    Yep, proper strength training is near-maximal hyp training too. The most common misconception about strength training is that low reps (85%+) are the primary driver of strength, but it’s really just...

    Hypertrophy drives strength. Anyone who cares about strength should dedicate 80% of their training towards hypertrophy or ‘bodybuilding’. The other 20% should be heavy skill work with loads >85% of...

    Can vouch for this. It appears counterintuitive, but deficit deadlifts have helped with my lockout for this very reason. The larger ROM forces you to be tighter in the starting position and to...

    1. From memory (if someone can confirm), Beyond 5/3/1 gives you the option to do speed work either before or after the main bench, squat, press, deadlift top set of the day, so you wouldn’t have to...

    Sticky quality, repped. I’ve always liked conjugate and it’s probably the best system you could run if you have athletic endeavors or just a casual lifter who wants to be equally strong, explosive,...

    I’d go with something like westside conjugate for the added synergistic effect with your sport. However, it does require a decent amount of reading/education before jumping right in. If you want...

    Yes, that’s fine. It’s not that serious. The rationale behind squatting first is that it primes your body better for deadlifting, but if you’re ramping/warming up properly on the deadlift it...

    You can get the best of both worlds by focusing on 2-3 movements within a block and then rotating them out. For chest, keep a flat/decline press + incline press + fly type movement within a block and...

    They are mutually complementary up to a point, but it’s not really what I’m describing. Rather a dependency. Strength is limited and dependent on the amount of mass you have. With that said, you...

    Don’t get me wrong, there is absolutely merit to this poll beyond a fun topic! Training strictly for physique or strength purposes is 100% a thing, despite the vast carryover between the two. I was...

    What you described is high intensity, high rpe training. You’re right, you can definitely grow from this, but the volume you need for growth with such intensity accumulates too much fatigue for it to...
  • Poll: If you’re training for ‘strength’ and neglecting...

    If you’re training for ‘strength’ and neglecting hypertrophy/bodybuilding type training, you’re f***ing something up. Muscle is your strength potential and getting as big as possible should be the...

    Yeah, that’s a good point - I have seen some state they’re using super sets, but what they’ve described is an alternating set. Probably an exaggeration on my part to say super sets are sh*t when they...

    I personally think alternating sets are the better option. Still saves time and the second exercise is treated as equal. Say you do a superset of exercise A, then B, followed by 2 min rest. You just...

    Sounds like you haven’t built up the work capacity to do the volume you’ve prescribed, thus requiring longer rest times. Would be helpful to see the exact layout of the workout, but it’s quite...

    My completely anecdotal opinion on consecutive full body days is not a favorable one at all. I was doing about 14 sets per muscle split as U/L 2x/week. The same volume split across 4 full body days...

    I honestly don’t think it’s all that different from sets across in terms of recruitment. It’s really just a matter of taste, considering 0-4 RIR are essentially equivalent to 1 set. Sure, you could...

    With rep goals, you’re not doing continuous sets until you reach the goal. You allocate a rep goal across a designated number of sets. You stick with the weight until that goal is met. Ego is right...

    I don’t get the issue here. What’s stopping you from doing both? Lift with intent and record as you go. Trying to fathom the correlation between record keeping and lifting intent.
