The following are guidelines in which you can implement straight away
- High training volumes are required (8-12 reps)
- Have split routines will allow up to 4 sessions per week
- 6-8 exercises per session
- Rest Period – 2 mins
- Use the 3:1 ratio when periodising. This involves 3 working weeks, followed by a deload week. A deload week is a reduction in volume, intensity or both to aid in recovery.
Food for thought.
