Introduction to Phase 2 - Strength Training
Phase 2 Strength
The strength phase is one of many bodybuilder's favourite phases. The idea of the strength phase is that for every week for the next 4-6 weeks, you will be getting stronger each week. A training diary is a must during this phase, as it is important to track your progress. It is important to remember that you won't be building a lot of muscle tissue during the strength phase, but you will be getting very strong. 6 reps & below is considered strength work while anything above will start to lead to hypertrophy. This increased strength will be taken into the next phase to help you really grow some muscle mass. Some very important tips for this phase is to always control your movement, completing 6-8 reps on compound exercises & 10-12 reps on isolation movements. The key during this phase however is to put in 110% in intensity, which is why a training partner will be extremely handy during this phase as you will be wanting to complete 1-2 forced reps on each working set of each exercise.
