3 main principles I know that builds strength, muscle and performance.
Primal movement patterns:
Push, pull, squat, bend and carry is all that really matters. But never forgot training your guns 😜💪🏼
Progressive overload: Push the progression with the loads day by day, week by week, month after month… Move with perfection, increase the reps, weights, and sets and you will reap the rewards... .
Specific adaptation to imposed demands:
To run fast, you must practice running fast. To get good at lifting heavy weights you must practice lifting heavier weights.
It’s really hard to build a 200kg backsauat if all you do is 5km runs, air squats and sit kicks.
Wise man once said: Weakness is a disease and strength is the cure. Get strong. ;)
Comment below your main principles!
My #acl turns one year old today! I celebrated it's birthday at the gym with leg day featuring squats (5x5, 3 @ 185 and 2 at 205). Tearing my ACL was an athletic reset for me and while I would not actually recommend this as the best method for soul searching, it worked for me. I realized I really like lifting heavy things and putting them back down and now I'm much stronger than I was pre-tear. Thank you @adventures_of_gio 's human David for helping me build back my strength and confidence!
(As a side note, I actually didn't realize the guy I was working in with changed the weight from 185 to 205 until I finished my sets. Four weeks ago I only squatted 205 for one on a good day, but since @jack_the_deadlift_ripper started coaching me doing sets of 5 felt really great. Dm him if you want to hop on the #swoletrain ) .
