- rep correlations in regards to maximum strength and how accurate they can be
- problems associated with the initial stages of linear periodization and how these can be remedied
- problems associated with the last few weeks of periodization and fixes for these as well
- short cycles within a longer cycle that will always let you know where you are in terms of your 1-rep max within a few pounds. These cycles also build on each other allowing you to plan properly for the next cycle.
- a system that lets you work with heavy enough loads that your top level strength stays intact but doesn't burn you out by exceeding certain thresholds too often.
- factors in rep work for your big lifts to allow for hypertrophy throughout the entire training cycle and increases your 1RM as well.
- How to use your opener and second attempts weights to actually build for that big third attempt and know whether you are really good for it.
- How not to leave reps on the table that help build your 1RM faster.
What if you are having a crap day and miss what was planned? Did you get too liberal with your planned max (a common mistake of guys who fail with linear programs)? What now? Chalk it up to a bad or sweat not being able to make the lift at the meet?
As noted, I'm fine tuning this thing but I really think it's going to be pretty awesome once I get all of the kinks out. Will write more about it as I iron things out.
