Program To Improve Your Weakness
IS PRESCRIPTION WORKING?
There is a basic, first situation when it’s not a good idea to do intensity prescriptions. That’s when the lifter is a newbie. And there are two really simple reasons for that. First is, that such powerlifters either don’t have 1RMs to base the on or the 1RMs they have are not correct. The latter reason occurs due to a mix of multiple factors. Such as limited technical ability, limited mobility, poor neurological efficiency, and the weak power of will. Secondly, new powerlifters usually progress very quickly to the next routines of the
There are millions of ways on how to compose good weightlifting workout programs. Some coaches stay true to few basic plans on such training. They simply tweak them to be fit for different skills and experience levels. But we are sticking to quite a different plan. We put our focus on intensity (actual weights) prescriptions for any specific powerlifter. I personally am sure there are times when both approaches are applicable, even within the same workout session…
The next situation is in a program in which the trainer wants the powerlifter to workout as intense as possible on any given session. This may mean aspiring to a single maximal or near-maximal set (perhaps with subsequent back-off sets). Then lifter’s hitting a prescribed number of sets of the maximal number of weights per set. In such a situation it’s always better to listen to the coach’s personal guidance. No one except your trainer will be able to intuitively figure out what’s best for your workout routine right now.
