Default Getting to 85% and getting to 99%

I mentioned this in another thread and I thought I would bring it up for discussion. This is my opinion. Feel free to have your say...

To get to the 85% level all you need to do is to get strong on about 7-10 lifts for the next 3-5 years using the 5-12 rep range for most exercises.

If you want to know the secret beyond this level, watch how Layne Norton, Rich Knapp or Doug Miller trains. It's at another level, with superhuman intensity and volume.

That sums up the difference accurately for me. Getting to 85% requires simplicity, persistence, basics and strength improvement, but getting to 99% requires the willingness to do things that no other human being would deem sane.

To get to 85%:


To get to 99%:
