I have not moved to that type of training. You guys like to put people in a box don’t you? I’m not a one system guy. I’m a generalist, which is both a strength and a weakness. I use all kind of systems based on the individual I’m working with.
- Natural vs. enhanced
- Neurotransmitter dominance
- Body type
- Training experience
Please don’t attach me to a system. For example, my wife is starting to train again. This is what she did today:
MY WIFE ´S LAST WORKOUT OF THE FIRST WEEK OF HER COMEBACK
First her workout then some notes.
X band walks 2 sets of 10 per side
Shoulder dislocate with resistance band 2 sets of 10
Bodyweight squats 2 sets of 10
A1. Hang clean
A2. Shoulder press with cambered bar
B1. Push press
B2. Pull-ups (pronated)
5 x 6-8
C1. DB low incline (15 deg) press
3 x 10
C2. Chin-up (supinated)
3 x 6-8
I’m training her three times a week and she does Crossfit 2-3 times a week . This week she did 6 sessions (this was her 6th) and she also did yoga for an hour after her Crossfit yesterday.
Since she is doing Crossfit 2-3 times a week I do not have her do any METCON work in her strength sessions. Rather I want to focus on what she is not getting from her Crossfit workouts.
The cambered press is one of my favorite exercise (writing an article about it at the moment). I find it to hit the delts a lot better because of the increased need for stabilization.
We do low reps because of her neurotransmitter dominance. Descending sets also works best for her. She is also getting plenty of high reps in Crossfit so no need for volume in her lifting sessions.
She lost torque at the shoulder joint as soon as the clean gets off the floor… she should maintain it otherwise the bar is a bit forward. But she can’t be perfect on the first week back!
NOT EXACTLY HIT… IS IT?
