Weight-Training round table

Answered on August 19, 2014

I have decided to incorporate a two/day split routine with one session being a powerlifintg-style the other an olympic lifting session. Currently I am doing(and have been for the apst 1/2 year) a two-per-day without a day off 3-day split(emphasizing deadlift, squat, bench press on each respective day and 'supplementary' exercises with a 4-8 rep average ranger over 6-8 sets including two warm-up sets. Usually doing about 6 exercises per session), each session taking approx. 35-45 minutes usually done both in the afternoon and evening with a 4 hour interval between them. That said for background I am interested in some discussion about what would amount to "correspondant" lifts for olympic-style lifting(eg. deadlift-and-shrug for 'deadlift' day). What would people recommend for this. I'm mainly concerned with increasing strength and speed/neuro-muscular coordination within the 'rubric' of this two/day split(as I train mainly for fun/function not mass, etc.). How do the paleos train? Feedback please!

"within the rubric of 2per day" remember. Not absolute, only relative...

are you giving yourself enough time to recover between exercises - for absolute strength you should have at least 48 hours between sets of deadlifts, squats etc.

"How do the paleos train?"

I think that, in general, paleos train a bit more spontaneously and intuitively. Your methods seem a bit over-structured to me.

I would recommend you look at the'body by science' site. A quote from dr doug mcguff from the book is "eat like the flinstones, but train like the jetsons". Also, look at Baye.com - he has what may be controversial views regarding the Olympic lifts. Good luck and enjoy.
