This section of the forum seems to be filled with people who are mainly interested in hypertrophy (increase in muscular bodyweight) and fat loss. There are probably some of you who are highly interested in gaining strength and strength alone. That’s great!! Here’s a tip to get you strong:
Learn how to regulate volume and intensity
-Volume (total amount of repetitions done in a training session, week, month, etc.) is very important to regulate. Often times, the more total repetitions you can do in a certain intensity range (percentage of your one repetition maximum), the better.
Training with atleast 80% intensity is a must if your goal is strength. Anything lower is bodybuilding and/or dynamic effort training. Alexander Sergeyevitch Prilepin has once created a table for proper training volume and intensity.
Christian Thibaudaeu actually revised it in his book “The Black Book of Training Secrets”. The reason why this table is effective is that every repetition that you do is performed with optimal speed. In order for your body to produce force, you need MASS and ACCELERATION.
The faster you move a heavy weight concentrically, the more force your body will produce. For more info on the Prilepin table, visit www.google.com.
