Default Clarence Bass and Progression

One of Clarence Bass' latest articles deals with rep ranges, HLM training, and effort.

Weight Training With Effort - Many Ways

The basic findings of the studies were this:

Quote:
A maximal or near maximal effort of the last rep or two of a set ensures maximal or near maximal voluntary unit activation.
So basically, if you're training for progression, and the last rep or two are intense, you're in good shape. Regardless of the rep range. AND, thsi applies to all HLM rep ranges.

By the way, groups training with different rep ranges all gained the same amount of strength on squats and bench, showing that it's not the rep range that's the most critical key in training for strength.

This article also brings into light the question of whether short rest periods between sets are effective. Because of the limited rest, you are working more reps under heavier then normal duress. This would seem to indicate that more unit activation.

Where does this mesh with a full body approach?

Well, as long as you are pushing yourself on every set, It doesn't appear that routine structure matters.

So basically this article is just saying as long as you struggle and push for more weight you are going to get stronger, no matter what kind of routine you do??

That makes sense, simplifies everything, so just lift hard on whatever you do, and you will see results. I agree

Mr. Bass is one of the few people who I will actually read, and think about what he has said. The man has a brain, and knows how to use it.

Check out his photo's.

That's basically it. If you've ever read the Carpinelli studies - which I strongly recommend - they basically reveal that for the Average Joe (not necessarily for advanced lifters) can get strong by simple progression on any rep range.

I know this seems obvious to most of us, but so many believe that strength training is in the 1 to 5 rep range. That might be true for advanced lifters, but not needed for everyone else.

Clarence Bass' site is top notch as far as info, BTW. He is in my main rotation.
