"No because nervous fatigue is both site specific amd systemic."
--- that is SO true! (i love when u put into words what i have felt, but cannot describe)
"so you can't do one 1RM lift per day."
--- meaning 7 days a week? or what?-- see also comments below
"By the same token, if you change the intensity zone every week you have too much time between intense CNS stimulation that puts you in a do or die situation and forces maximal adaptation. "
--- i can appreciate that. changing up too soon, or often, can short circuit the cns?
so far for myself.back in december when i first started the original layer(1rm, clusters@90%, 5,4,3,2,1 HDL @70-80%), i had the best overall gains ive ever had in such a short period of time. also, i was in "training shape" to be able to handle it.and i really did have to eat a lot. food seems to help the CNS ALOT! Yet, after about 4 weeks, it got stagnant. at the time, i believe you noticed that also, and "adjusted" the hdl portion some. unfortunately for me, thats when my season came and i wasnt training at all. it made lots of sense because by the time i was getting to the hdl, i was half-shot. that being said, and considering your current statement "so you can't do one 1RM lift per day", maybe it would be "better"(dont really like that word here, but i think you understand), to adjust the ramp and cluster portion, and leave the hdl portion alone.
-that could-- "It's a training zone that allows you to stimulate muscle growth at little nervous system expenses, a way to continue building muscle while allowing the nervous system to recover."
- another thing i noticed is that when using the 1rm, i would need to be careful not to shoot my whole load on that portion alone. hence, the 2rm. well, the idea of the 2rm is to not overdo the 2rm,but, the 2rm can be in some circumstances more demanding than the 1rm. so, the 3rm seems to fit the bill for most of the movements. even the clusters are less taxing. yet you cant stay there forever.
- in the end, are we looking for a happy medium?
or a conglomerate of cycles in a specific order,over certain time frames, to achieve our goals?
