I figured since I’m currently learning some interesting stuff, once a week I want to share this information to inform you guys too :) There are different phases of training based on YOUR current goals.
If you’re interested in strength level training, your main focus is to maintain stabilization endurance while increasing prime mover strength.
IE: performing two exercises in a superset sequence--- first exercise is performed in a stable environment (think bodyweight squat), second exercise is performed in a less stable environment (squat on a bosu ball)
What this accomplishes: works the prime movers predominantly to elicit prime mover strength…. then challenges stabilization muscles
-improves work capacity, joint stabilization
Phase 2 of Strength Training: Hypertrophy
-designed for individuals who have a goal of muscle growth -this would be accomplished by performing high volumes, moderate to high loads, and moderate or low repetitions (6-12)
I found this pretty interesting, being as not everyones’s goal when entering the gym is to put on muscle mass. Even more interesting— Hypertrophy follows Strength level training… meaning joint stabilization should be accomplished before putting on muscle :) keWL
