Charles Poliquin when talking about shock training:
“Another way that works well for strength is to train with singles (10-12) five days in a row for the same lift. Take two days off, you get a personal best”
Has anyone done this? I’d really like to try this for, let’s say, two weeks, and then rest up for about 5 days. I want to up my 1rm squat. I was thinking about something like this:
10 singles back squat 90-95% 1rm
10 singles front squat 90-95% 1rm
repeat, friday max out day. Weekend is for rest.
Week 3, rest up. no lifting.
I’m not a noob, I’ve lifted for quite a few years, but my squat has always been my weak point. I’d love to try this, as I’ve always reasoned the best way to increase a 1rm lift is to practice 1rm lifts. What do you think???
