Team Sustain - Sport of Fitness: The maximum weights method - Part 2

Team Sustain - Sport of Fitness: The maximum weights method - Part 2

The Patient Lifter 6 x [2-4] Method - with this training system, we start off with a weight that we can handle comfortably for six sets of just two repetitions.  Depending on your neurological efficiency, that will translate into about 80 to 87% of your 1RM.  The goal is to increase your strength SLOWLY over time so that you can handle that same wight for six sets of 4 repetitions.  

The reason The Patient Lifter's Method works is that the load increases only when the trainee can complete all sets of 4 repetitions with the starting weight of 6 sets of 2 repetitions.  The system works using what is called the law of repeated efforts because the nervous system is forced to accept the loads as being normal.

Conditioning is nothing more than an extension of movement.

Is this the year when getting strength, improve your conditioning, or simply become a better version of last years model?  Speaking with many of our clients, some have set goals to become better at CrossFit with the idea of competing in competitions and pushing themselves to achieve a higher level of conditioning. However, many of us don’t have a plan or know the best way to reach this goal? Where do you start?
