After competing the course, if I understand correctly, the same three lifts are used throughout the entirety of the accumulation, intensification, and realization phases.
I have two questions:
For gen. pop clients, would you keep the same lifts, block to block, or to add some mental and hypertrophy variety, keep the same layout but maybe a different lift for the same movement pattern? Example. Accumulation = squat - heels elevated and Intensification = squat.
For gen. pop, within a block, have you ever toyed with switching the lifts depending on the day? Example: Eccentric day = overhead press and Concentric day = bench press - flat - barbell.
Gen. Pop. get bored fast and many times do not have as many neurological stressors as an athlete.
- If using an Olympic lift for one of the three lifts, how do you program is for the eccentric or isometric day? Example: low hang power clean. For the isometric day, my guess would be doing it off of blocks, but I’m lost on the eccentric day.
