Hello CT and fellow lifters,
I have been training on and off for 20 years, am 35 years old, weigh 145-148 lbs, and 5’4” short. Just a couple of weeks ago I bought your Neurotyping Test and attained the following results:
Clearly 1B, with Type 3 being close second.
I used to compete at weightlifting (snatch 100kg and CJ 125kg @62kg), but not interested on going back to it and my goals now are muscle size - powerbuilding. Love to squat and deadlift, hate to bench (although floor presses are nice ). With my weightlifting background, technical mastery is a must for the big-compound lifts, and I dislike higher reps (anything above 10 just gets me exhausted and unmotivated).
Since taking the test and reading plenty about your Neurotype training recommendations, I have been doing Upper / Lower split, but with 3 days per week rotating each week on Mon, Wed, and Fri (50-60min sessions). So I train 3x each area every 2 weeks.
Just recently I switched to doing 5am sessions due to family, work, responsibilities, and just more time in the afternoons. On Tue and Thu, I have started to do inclined walks on treadmill for ~45min (5am as well), which I really like. I used to love sprinting, but not HIIT stuff. Plus, the walking seems to calm my stress/anxiety.
So, I have just been trying to figure out hands-on how to accommodate Type 1b and 3 recommendations. That’s why I do 3x per week (Type 3), lower reps 1-8 (Type 1B), perfecting technique (Type 3), and honestly, I love to train with clusters, your layer-system, and rest-pauses (1B).
I read your post on your wife being 1B dominant, but with some 3 traits because of life’s hardships, and I can relate to that. I greatly appreciate some guidance in regards to my Neurotype test scores.
