In order to improve recovery and reduce the need for complete deload weeks I have this plan I think might work pretty good. I’m thinking of doing this while continuing the Westside Barbell style conjugate method. Mostly, I’m just posting this to bounce some ideas off some other lifters.
Week 1-high volume
Week 2-medium volume
Week 3-low volume
Week 4-rehab/prehab exercises+mobility (while still doing ME and dynamic movements)
The dynamic efforts and ME movements aren’t what are killing my recovery abilities. It always seems to be volume for me. High volume can bother my joints too. Do any of ya’ll do anything like this. Are there ways I can improve on this concept. Or is this just stupid.
