Hi coach

As someone who favors training very specifically, if you have a long cycle would you start maxing out straight away or would u use more reps, variety? If so how long into a cycle would u start daily maxes?
Thanks very much coach

that really depends on the athlete and the strength and weakness of the athletes. age, gender, sport, etc, etc have to be taken into consideration. if i have a beginner i always stress range of motion and body wt. exercises before barbell exercises. pvc is body wt.. when the coach see's progress and development and the ability to handle more....GRADUALLY move into the sn, cj, fs and work on weakness style of training. we call this the AMERICANIZED BULGARIAN SYSTEM. hope this helps.
