Every year we train we learn a little bit more about our bodies and this helps us fine tune our training to our specific needs. With the year coming to an end in about 6 weeks I thought it would be cool to make a thread about all the stuff you learned this year in training. This could be general stuff or personalized little things like, “deadlifting once a week works better for me then twice a week” or “my pressing exercises respond best to lower reps”.
Here are some of the things I learned about myself…
-I have to press twice a week. Once a week isn’t enough for me to get stronger my strength levels just stay the same
-sumo deadlifting and good mornings have very good carryover to my conventional deadlift
-deadlifting for anything more then 4 reps barely does anything to make my max go up. Heavy singles with very long rest periods are the way to go
- keeping the sets low and upping the frequency of my training works better then vice versa
I’m interested in what your guys have to say!
