    Hi Pete, – in this example the young fellas squatting 95 and 135 respectively are no where near their potential {normal ROM, dynamic movements}, Do you think newbies like this should spend a year of so training full/regular/normal range, before graduating to PFT/SCT protocols.

  • It comes down to their priorities. If they have some reason for needing maximum full range strength then there’s only one way to get it. Just like needing to throw a baseball fast – you’ll have to practice that exact movement thousands of times.

    But if they just want to add 20-30lbs of muscle to their body they are doing it a very, very inefficient way. When mass is the priority I don’t see a good reason to risk the weak-range injuries and slow down progress by avoiding maximum intensity for years.

    When your biceps CAN lift 10,000 lbs/min, why fuss around doing 1,500 lbs/min?

    What happened to the mega thread talking about the Healthlift, deadlift, ect?

  • The author of that article was criticized for his remarks so he asked for his article to be taken down. I obliged him.

    Pete,
    I definitely hit a plateau in my PFT routine. I know your Engineering Strength Gym works for beginners and mid-level. But how well does it work for folks who have been training consistently for 4 years or so with steady but much slower progress. I might be mistaken, but I believe you charge folks on a monthly basis for your services, that is a distinct disadvantage to folks that train less than once a month. If your ESG membership charged the customer on a per workout basis, it would be far more beneficial for more advanced folks to join your service. Thank you very much.

  • Hi Ralph. Everybody hits plateaus but it’s almost always possible to break past them with a tweak in weight/reps/time/or frequency.

    This would be the program for you: 10 workouts with no time limit on how long they take to complete.

    If you utilize MedX computerized testing/training machines you can do HIT Trek and know for certain everything you can know about a set of an exercise. However MedX computerized machines are limited to leg extension / leg curl , lumbar extension , rotary torso obliques , and rotary neck.
    However if you acquire extensive experience with these machines or actually just one of them then you will gain the necessary experience needed to perform HIT with any equipment properly.
    MedX put out a paper , that is still available for download on their site, entitled ” Muscle ” that details strength gains made by a number of subjects in a University of Florida test that documented strength gains made at specific points along the entire ROM of an exercise caused by STATIC HOLDS at those same points of ROM.
    It’s a fascinating paper that I have been recommending as a must read for anyone interested in progressive resistance strength training.
