Training protocol

Training protocol

Ok I have been doing a little research here, and I have a question.

There seems to be two schools of thought on how much training is necessary or acceptable for growth. One school seems to subscribe to ‘less is more’ and consequently more growth will occur with a routine that is more brief and/or less strenuous. The other school of thought (primarily hangers led by Bib? I assume) believe that continuing to train, even after fatigued, is the way to grow.

While I am sure the continuing to train, even after fatigued, regimen is far more advanced than my Newbie status will allow, I am curious as to which is the better approach, out of curiosity?

Thanks to anyone who has a contribution. :)

Thanks Bird,

I am following the Newbie routine, I just asked the question in a theoretical type of way. I thought there would be a lot of opinions on this topic since there seems to be several schools of thought on the approach to gains?

Everyone posts out of their own point of view. A guy who needs to invest a lot of time into PE to make gains says that it is the way to go. Another guy who manage to gets gains with little investment of time will say that his way works. There never will be an united school on this simply because people are build different.

Well, I for one think there is merit to the IPR strategy.

Oddly, it seems to combine the PE to exhaustion philosophy, with that of less is more.

This idea is that you initially put stress and then gradually decrease the stress until you arrive at complete rest and then repeat.

The intensity you step up over time, but slowly, so you can maximize gains with the least effort. So it’s not really as simple as ‘less is more’. Generally speaking the idea is eke out the most gains from the least effort and ride the body’s response to defending itself from repetitive stress (i.e. ligaments toughening, etc.).

This post summarizes a routine based on this method:

I would really recommend reading that thread (it is a little dense, as xeno was practicing being verbose, but ultimately worth the read - to absorb the theory: the link to a medical discussion about IPR is good).

Search “IPR” and read up. It does seem to be working for a lot of guys.

Currently I’m deconditioning and when I finish I’m going to embark on this plan. Probably hanging, which I’ve never done.

monkeybar’s hanger will be my choice, I think. As it seems to work the unit harder with less weight. And everyone seems to agree that it’s comfortable.

And heat. Heat. Heat. Heat. Warm-ups and heat during the workout seem very important.

When I’ve gone in for physical therapy they heat the area for 20 minutes before doing any work. Makes sense to me.

So that’s my current thought, for what it’s worth.

Sort of looking at getting the best of both ideas.

Mr. Happy,

Thanks so much for your insights.

The thread that you linked does seem like a potentially time consuming read, although probably very valuable nonetheless. In as much as you have already digested this, is there a chance that you can give me the condensed, ‘for dummies’ version as a preview before I have a chance to go over it all?

And I appreciate a Vet taking the time to inform a Newbie, Mr. Hap.

Thanks. :Up:
