I’m curious if anybody reading this has ever adopted a purely or nearly-pure instinctive approach to their training? This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time but my proclivity towards order and pre-planning has, thus far, prevented me from taking that leap. If I were to do it the only restriction I would place on myself, as far as pre-planning goes, would be that balance among all lifts, movement patterns, and general physical capabilities must be maintained. Other than that, day-to-day conditions would be the sole determiner in how I train or if I train at all on a particular day.
I do recognize that such a restriction might negate the whole principle of instinctive training up front but, at this point, I see no way around it. I should also mention that while I posted this under the “powerlifting” rubric I’m also into strongman events and weightlifting; the instinctive approach I described would apply to all my training. Can anybody offer advice or insight?
