Using Contrast and Complex Sets for Improving Strength and Power
Using Contrast and Complex Sets for Improving Strength and Power
Varying demands placed upon the musculoskeletal system present different adaptation responses within the tissues. Properly identifying the muscular stresses needed to reach a given goal is a crucial skill which allows the personal trainer and strength coach to choose the best activities to include in a weight lifting program. There are a number of resistance training systems at one’s disposal which have demonstrated effectiveness for addressing almost any given need (or combination of needs) when applied in a proper fashion. Choosing the right systems for the right needs will enhance the magnitude and rate of desired adaptations. The exercise professional providing the leadership may be metaphorically described as a chef; when he or she uses the right ingredients (systems) in the correct quantities for their recipe (program) – the dish (adaptations) will come out as planned.
