Re: Metabolic Training


Hi Ash

It is mainly just for general strength and fitness as I won’t be playing this season and possibly not again at all unfotunately.

I was looking at 12 week blocks alternating from strength focus to hypertrophy focus and back to strength. The power work that I do is just because I love doing it and to improve my skills for coaching.

For my first strength phase I was planning on using two rounds of the Accumulation/Phase Intensification Phase which Damian suggested in his holy grail post:

Wk 1-3: 5 x 5 plateau load Wk 4: 5 x 5 step load
Wk 5: 2 x 5, 3 x 3 step load
Wk 6: 5,4,3,2,1

Then changing to a similar 2x 6wk program but for hypertrophy (Can you suggest anything here?)

I’ll take your advice on the metabolic work, and I’ll prob start off light with the beastly circuits.

Thanks again for your advice, much appreciated.
