In regards to the periodization theory, I’ve been thinking about doing 3 month blocks of techniques geared towards either girth or length. With a 7 day “break” (only stretching) in between.
However I think that in both stages there needs to be a certain percentage of work done towards the lesser of the two goals for the block you’re in. For example if you’re in a girth block and doing a 3 on 1 off routine, you’d want to have the second day be hanging instead of clamping. Then the next week, the third day would be hanging. Then the next week, the first day of each three days on would be hanging.etc This way you’re rotating your routine around a bit.
I know it seems weird to stop a certain routine if you’re gaining, but for some reason I think that 3 months is long enough for your unit to adapt, and that changing at this time and attacking it from another angle will continue gains as opposed to letting a plateau set in. It seems as if by the time a plateau has set in, your unit has frozen up a bit and settled in a less pliable state.
Any suggestions or comments?
