I am relatively new to posting on this site, but am no stranger to the site itself.
I am posting for the 2nd time, out of curosity on a certain subject.
I recently came across a thread, where Christian Thibaudeau introduced, to me, an interesting type of training, called "powerbuilding".
Can anyone give me the 411 on this?
The post for Christian is as follows:
Hey there Christian,
I am a long time reader, first time poster.
I was actually recently skimming through saved posts, and found something that sounded interesting.
A while ago, you mentioned to be doing a more "powerbuilding" routine.
I have never heard about this type of training before, and was hoping you would'nt mind enlightening me on this subject.
All that was provided was that you approached this type of training by employing 3 different exercises for each body part, while using 3 separate rep/set schemes.
I had a few questions in this dealing with this type of training
*- What type of split approach would you utilize?
*- Is there a exercise selection significance?
*- How would you periodize this type of training?
*- What is kind of goal is achieved in using this type of "powerbuilding" training?
*- 1) Is this type of training suitable for an athelete?(Rugby Player)
- 2) If not, how would you ? tailor ? it to fit the needs of those desiring usuable/functional gains.
So feel free to elaborate on this subject. The help from anyone would be appreciated.
