Science Behind Strength Programming: Load, Frequency, Progression?

Hi CT, I am interested in the science behind any strength program and the programming like :- „ —When to add weight?
-Why exactly the range from lets say 85-97,5%( as in your latest strength program)
-What is the best frequency and why?

  • Is it absolutely crucial to train some exercises very often( like the big 3) to improve or is improvement also possible with a less frequent approach?
    Do you have some literature tips referring that topic?
    Hope you understand my question

Any tips?

That would almost require a book.

Are there articles that target that topic?

You could start with practical programming for strength trainining by Mark Rippetoe

I’d buy it.
