Timing Effects on Muscle Activation After Neurotype Training?

Curious about your opinion on the timing effects on muscle activation after neuro training. Is there a protocol that is more effective than the others? For example, is the one of these that you would recommend over the other.

  1. Neuro training one day then a heavy day the next.
  2. Neuro training in the AM and heavy day in the PM.
  3. Neuro exercise then heavy lift exercise as in the 1A and 1B.

Just to clarify, are you referring to Neural Charge Training: https://www.t-nation.com/workouts/neural-charge-training

Or Neurotype training? https://www.t-nation.com/workouts/the-neuro-type-workouts

I feel like you’re talking about Neural Charge work, but calling it Neurotype.

I use the first and second approaches. The third one is not neural charge training. It’s a form of complex (Russian complex) that works,but it will not “recharge” the CNS. I use Russian complexes from time to time with athletes but not so much to potentiate performance but to train speed and power in the same workoiut when an athlete has a limit time to train.

Like the second approach when the athlete is fatigued but must lift heavy. And I like the first one when the athlete is fresh and wants to maximize performance.

Awesome! Thanks!!
