I’ve personally experienced the incredibly powerful, effective and efficient results of performance based training. I use the phrase “performance training” because its probably the most familiar title for most. I, undoubtedly know its much deeper than what it appears on the surface. I’ve learned this through many years of my own training in athletics, but more recently found this philosophy (as a way of thinking) to have the same powerful training effects in all areas of bodybuilding, men and women’s physique, and women’s figure and bikini.
In fact, it’s more profound in this area because the effects can be quantified through a visual change in aesthetics. The differentiating factor being a structured and consistent nutrition plan. If one understands how to effectively structure their nutrition, it will SUPPORT their current training approach, as well as prepare them for the physical effects of their training to be seen after that specific training phase is complete. It should also prepare them to transition to the next phase of training and not lose any of the positive momentum they’ve built prior.
There are 3 other aspects of a performance based training approach that are rarely recognized as a direct result of training in this fashion.
The physical look one develops—powerful, healthy, dense muscle and more depth at every angle. You know it when you see it. It’s definitely unique.
Natural and very intuitive–once you become aware of the distinct signs of optimal training within, it becomes much easier to regulate the intensity and volume within individual workouts which will naturally regulate the bigger picture of the current training phase.
“Neural Memory” The term muscle memory has been around for decades. The associated effect of this main stream phrase is “real and valid” but, it’s preceded by the nervous system “remembering” how to signal the muscles. High performance movement requires neural efficiency. Performance based training develops a very high level of this. If done for long enough, it establishes a foundation the body can call upon after a period of time off. Even fairly long periods of time.
The sooner you can attain a highly efficient working state in the body, the sooner the desired training effect can be reached. I have experienced this a few times due to injury. Speaking of injuries, one will recover and get back to full speed sooner, when the nervous system is operating at full speed.
I’ll post two very profound “case studies” I have done with two personal coaching clients over the last 7 months. One is a bodybuilder with a few competitions under his belt. The second is a men’s physique competitor that is very new to competing. Two different physique goals, using very similar training methods to achieve the aesthetic look desired. The changes along the way and the end result are truly incredible.
