How much variability is there between individuals and the amount of 90+% work needed for optimal strength gains?
Personally, I seem to be very easily stimulated by high-intensity work and experience negative side effects (anxiety, poor sleep, skin breakouts) when performing more than a low volume of heavy work, especially in the same workout.
Some of my best deadlift progress came when just doing 1 top end set per week, but at the same time, I also made great gains on a squat every day program.
Does anyone else have a similar experience?
CT, do you have significant programming differences for your athletes based on how easily they are neurologically stimulated?
