Coach do you think there are important “signalling” that each workout should focus on and inteference to avoid? For instance, many think endurance training around the strength training period diminishes hypertrophy/strength gains. The signals are too different and actual interfere with physioloical adapations.
Similarly, do you think this applies PER workout, within each session? Is it better to do one rep style (say intensity, lower rep heavy explosive) one workout and then another more voluminous (8+ reps, moderate load) the next? I think they call it “concurrent periodization”?
Or is it ideal to stagger each intensity & rep zone every workout. The latter being how I’ve mostly trained and preferred to train. Ramp up a big movement in 1-3 rep range -> heavy volume 3-5 rep range -> assistance 8+ reps at the end of the workout. Even layers (the HDL is kind of like high rep while the ramp/clusters are obviously low rep).
Applied even more broadly, would training perfomrance (explosive o-lifts, gymnastic skill or calisthenic bodyweight practice) PER workout “interfere” with gains? I can’t believe the body is so rigid/inflexbile as to not adapt but I do think theres something to this, observing my own gains over the years…
Seems like more and more popular way of training is to separate the volume & intensity days…is there really signal “interference” when you do all rep ranges & skills/CNS exposure every workout? Should one separate?
