so, hi everyone, I got this question from quite a while.
I am not sure if this is the right forum to post it in.
My goal is generic strength more than maximal.
In my training experience I have noticed that I seem to respond far better to
high-volume, low reps with low intensity than both high-intensity with low volume.
I have noticed this especially in this last period when I used to do a lot of bodyweight stuff:
tons of pull ups, dips, push ups(my bench improved drastically), handstand push ups(they improved my military as well) one leg squat etc..
So it got me thinking: what if I use low loads in the squats and deadlifts but I do a lot of volume?
Low intensity I mean very low (50-60%) and a very high volume and frequency as well (meaning everyday) with a lot of jump squats/depth jumps and plyometrics. Basically treat squat/bench/deadlift as if they were Bw exercises.
How would that affect my strength in the long term?
I know that in the short I will not be able to manage very high loads, but I think that this would build a solid base, wouldn't it?
Note: I play contact sports so I cannot burnout myself with powerlifting programs because I do not think that with all the conditioning I would not recover.
