Default Warm up tip and a training option

This came up in my log and copied and pasted it here because I think its a good tip for how to treat your warmups to get the most from your training. I am a little hestitant to post it because it seems a no brainer to me but it may help someone.


I believe in an explosive concentric for all main movements once your warmed up. All your warm up sets should be done as fast as possible. It carries over to the heavier weights. Heres an example of a warmup set for me. Paused then trying to explode up. I worked up to 400 during this workout but I still moved the lighter weights fast. Once your warmed up, give this a go next time your lighter sets.




Another take on speed training

I also believe in doing sets across with heavier percentages as fast as possible with short rest periods. So something like 80% for 6x2. A good guide for this type of training is to look at the old westside training cycle.

http://muscleandbrawn.com/old-school...bell-training/

This is an example of what I mean by doing a heavier weight as fast as possible with short rest periods. You can tell I was tired out when the weight moved up but I am moving the weights as fast as I can and I feel there is a carryover to the heavier weight.

I notice that your lifts are all equiped, do you do any sort of raw lifting? And does this style of lifting heavy respond to only equiped lifts or can you modify it for raw lifters?

Dude, wraps do not make a bit of difference in training style, unless you lift more from rebound or less pain.

He's a raw lifter, and all the lifts in the videos are raw.

Sorry Steve. I posted this in another section when I saw it was awaiting moderation a few weeks back. Didn't mean for the double post.

Shmeegs. Everybody's definition of raw seems to be diffrent but I train in sleeves and a belt. My definition is anything minus a squat suit or bench shirt and I think this type of training works great for it. Whether it be absolutely nothing or a belt and knee wraps it will work.

My bad, I don't know about wraps, as I don't use them. Or anything else for that matter. No wraps, straps, or even a belt. Now I know that some powerlifters use knee wraps and belts for their near max efforts but everyone is different. Sorry for the confusion.

Sorry, if my comment came across as insulting in any manner. My definition of raw was always no additions. No wraps, straps, belt. But then again, I don't follow many of the powerlifting organizations nor their rules. So each groups rules would allow for other training styles. Sorry for any unnecessary confusion.

No worries. It did not offend me at all. I will tell you to prevent confusion in the future that when you say someone is lifting equipped then the assumption is they are wearing a squat suit or bench shirt.
