High Performance Fat loss program
- are the prescribed reps done to failure each set, progressively ramp up heavier each set with those reps, or same weight each set but select a weight that allows you to get all the reps each set.
Thoughts on effectiveness, and proper doses of:
For weight loss
Apple Cider Vinegar
(green tea, and cayenne pepper does not agree with me)
D-Aspartic Acid, effectiveness of T Boosting for the initial 2 weeks. Then cycling it
I know u dont like using stimulants regularly,
What about NO pump products? ( citruline, agmatine, glycerol)
EMOM’s for 2-3 exercises for dynamic speed work
Helping female get first pullup, progress is stalled on strict pullup at the last 2 inches of movement. Currently programmed 2-3 vertical pull movements a week generally 3 sets each, (push pull workouts alternate) vertical pull movements including banded high rows, assisted pullups, and slow negative pullups in cluster format. Weighted hangs were also included about every other back day. The cluster negative seemed to have the best strength effect but we hit a wall at about 6 sec. negative with 4 clusters. Horizontal pulls limited to 2 exercises per week, deadlifts performed about every 7-10 days. Now progress has slightly regressed. The volume was slowly increased over about 2 months with a deload added in . Im debating if overcompensation at end of the cycle was too much. Maybe we should start back over with lower volume.
- Thoughts, suggestions?
It should be noted that this trainee is a very non explosive lifter, the diet is in good standing with caloric increase. pre-Peri-post workout nutrition is good. Trainee is making progress on all other major lifts. Trainee is approximately 165 pounds, likely a type 2B.
Thanks as always.
