On one hand we have adaptability and the bone crushing frequency and intensity of John Broz and Chaos and Pain and on the other we have Prilepin and Louie Simmons and optimal training
Prilepinís 1974 research was based on numerous world, European, and Olympic competitors. He calculated minimal, maximal, and of course optimal numbers of sets and reps at certain intensity zones. His work provided us with the maximum number of reps after which the lifts would slow down and thus become less effective.
This makes for a damn good discussion as these systems seem to be saying opposite things unless I'm missing something.
