MONDAY October 14
We are now entering an exciting new 3 Week Cycle. Using the numbers we acquired during our testing week we will have two strength days that will utilize the Fast Twitch Drop-set Method. Lifting on these days will be in the upper percentiles (85% and over) and will focus on our absolute strength with the ultimate goal, of course, of becoming stronger. Our Primary lifts will be supplemented with heavy accessory work and short anabolic sprints. There will be two metabolic lifting days that work on lower percentiles and focus on hypertrophy (the development of lean muscle tissue and we will follow a modified Y3T protocol).
Week 1 will focus on Type 2B Fast Twitch fibers and we will focus on the 6-12 Rep Range, Week 2 will focus on Type 2A Fast Twitch fibers where we will focus on 14 -18 Reps, and in Week 3, we will focus on slower twitch fibers with 20+ Reps. Eccentrics will be in the 2-3 second range throughout.
These variations and stimuli will “shock“ the muscles into further development and help us make farther strides toward improved physique and performance.

Once again, this coming week is all about maximizing our performance on Open Workout 20.2.
