Perhaps this is suited to both Powerlifters and Bodybuilders - The question: Tips, techniques, exercises and protocols to maximise the activation of the Nervous System.
I wondered if others like myself are experiencing the contrasts of being fully "activated" and not fully "activated". Certain workouts are PR breaking, others are at a stalemate. I feel if a trainee could activate themselves to an optimal level more frequently they could progress at a better rate.
Currently I'm experimenting with different exercises, techniques etc. With mixed results - time in the gym is good, so I can spend 20 minutes preparing. Heavy, deadstop, partials are kicking my *** when I move on to the full R.O.M exercise. Very light speed work however is in some part effective on some days.
Perhaps those who have a favourite/effective technique, tip, whatever would like to share their experiences? The experiences could benefit us all....
