Thanks! That explains a lot, and helps me to adjust my program schedule better.
I have a suggestion for an upcoming article. I have seen several great articles and programs for the micro-cycle (4 - 12 week), but I haven’t seen anything that helps me plan my macro-cycle, or my year. I think a great article would be to cover the various stages of a year, (or whatever the bigger cycle is), like when to focus on strength, endurance, fat loss, and bulking, how long to work each smaller cycle, and how to transition from one program to another without negating the maximal effects, as you have detailed here.
Thanks for the great information.
