Well Pull Ups and questions from Adrienl
Adrienl has left a new comment on your post “I haven’t plagerised the answers to these question…”:
thanks for answering those questions will, just got a few more
1) i haven’t yet seen you use a jump before a strength exercise so would you say this is a more advanced exercise and what would you be looking to acomplish through it? (eg give strength boost through more explosiveness or get better at pushing through fatigue)
That’s because I actually need to have a full time cameraman and blog writer in the gym with me because I actually have to work and don’t get to capture the best action unless it is quiet.
It isn’t necessarily a more advanced exercise. It is just different…when it next appears in a program and I remember to do so I will film it for you. I never do jumping before or after lifts while the athlete is ‘really’ fatigued.
2) in regards to testing are these planned out weeks ahead(the athletes therefore knows they are coming) or are they announced on the day?
They are planned out before in that athletes will know when they have a testing week. They do 6 weeks between full tests and at the end of 3 weeks have a mini test. Which is a 3RM box squat, repetition effort bench at body weight and a 3RM pull up….I have written about this before….you are obviously not paying attention to what I write….don’t worry though…neither am I.
3) what is the average time between testing for athletes and after performing the tests do they just head home or do they do extra work?
thanks again and don’t hesitate to tell me if i am getting annoying
No problem and you are getting annoying. Don’t let that stop you asking more questions though.
I just wanted to post Rammer’s because he did pretty well in the over 100kg class today.
He had a pretty good day testing wise with a PB on the bench, pull ups and deadlift.
