What a Soda Fountain and Powerlifting Meet Prep Have in Common

There’s one thing you need to keep in mind with meet prep design and it’s what holds back so many lifters from adding 5, 10, 15, 20 kg to their total meet after meet.
  • Maintaining conditioning in a peaking block
    • Need to think about specificity:
      • Set a minimum threshold for conditioning where you can
        • Complete block workouts
    • Adaptatation: fastest to slowest
      • Low intensity cardio
      • High intensity cardio
      • strength
  • will decay adaptation just as quickly too. As such, dropping conditioning in the name of specificity is a necessary evil if you are truly trying to peak properly and you can’t “do it all”
  • Think of training objectives like fountain drinks… your cup is only so big and eventually if you add enough sprite, you’re going to lose some of the fanta.
