Power Sets Defined
Power sets are the kind of sets that a competitive weightlifter would do, with the aim of training for maximum strength and power.
Power Sets For Bodybuilding Tips
- Start with a couple of warm up sets. Then selecting a heavy weight that you can only force out about 8 reps. Additional weight can then be added so that your sets become 6, 4, and 3 reps, then couple of sets using only one rep.
- The purpose of this kind of training is to teach your muscles to deal with maximum weights, compared to lighter weights, for more reps. Power training is best used for compound exercises, such as Bench Presses, Squats, and Deadlifts.
- The Power Training Principles are: Staggered Sets, the Priority Principle, Supersets, The Stripping Method, the Isotension Principle, the Instinctive Principle, Pre-Exhaust Principle, I Go/You Go, the Flushing Method, Multi-Exercise Sets, the “One-and-a-Half” Method, 21s, Progressive Workload, and Ballistic Training.
Power Training Principles For Muscle
A bodybuilder wanting to add quality muscle mass to his frame should incorporate Power Training Principles into his programme. Emphasis on power movements, such as Bench Presses, Squats and Dead lifts in the lower rep ranges, i.e. 1 – 8 reps using the methodology as described above, has demonstrated success in mass building. Try one of the techniques at a time, until you have mastered it. Once you have expanded your training repertoire, you will be fortunate to have a range of power training principles that you can draw upon to enhance your training progress.
