Rep Day

@Voxel you might find this useful for your goals

Trialing a new way to organise training, “The Quadrant System” from Daniel Bove of the New Orleans Pelicans. All going well, this model can inform programming for my athletes in the New Year

Under the model, all training days fit somewhere along two spectra:

  • Low to high intensity
  • Low to high volume

This creates four quadrants:

  1. Low volume, low intensity
  2. High volume, low intensity
  3. High volume, high intensity
  4. Low volume, high intensity

Quadrant 1 days are effectively rest days
Quadrant 2 days are for hypertrophy, prehab and aerobic conditioning
Quadrant 3 days are for strength and competition
Quadrant 4 days are for speed and power

Grouping training days in this fashion makes it easier to consolidate stressors and work around an inconsistent training schedule. This suits me very well.

The aim is to follow the below schedule:

  • Monday + Thursday: Q2
  • Tuesday + Friday: Q4
  • Wednesday + Saturday: Q3
  • Sunday: Off / Q1
