Five Strength Training Principles

Postby hsingh » Sat Jan 17, 2009 7:18 am

An interesting article I came across, it seems to agree with what little knowledge I have gained over the past year or so.



The main points:
1. Strive for strength, not size
2. Embrace progressive overload
3. Balance your movements
4. Become unstable
5. Do it all explosively

1 -> I started incorporating this just in 2009.
2 -> I have been doing a little bit of this over the past year
3 -> I'm sure I can do more here if I wrote down everything I do
4 -> I am a big believer in using dumbells
5 -> I really need to work on this one. Perhaps the weight is just too heavy for me to lift in an explosive fashion

Sounds awesome. i think all these 5 points are most .. if anyone follow these principles that could easily achieve his goals.. think first point is most important to look at your strength not of size gain
