  • Conditioning Volume in Strength Template

    Dr Feigenbaum,

    I've been going over the Strength 1 template, and noticed that the conditioning volume decreases over the last few weeks (I'm assuming to allocate as many resources available to maximise force production in SBD). I'm used to doing 3x/week of 30 min LISS and 2x/week of 18 min HIIT. Do you expect people not to go much beyond this conditioning prescription (in Strength 1) since it's only for a few weeks and performance in SBD is priority, or is it okay for someone to continue their earlier conditioning volume?

    One more question. If I had success with Strength 1 and wanted to focus on the press afterwards, would you recommend that I swap the bench press and variations for press counterparts in Strength 1, or rather do something like Strengthlifting 2?

    Thanks!

    TAL,

    I do not understand your first question. To your second, I don't think it's likely that most people will be able to self-program their way to success, but swapping out bench variants for press variants shouldn't be too complicated. You could try it out for sure. Strength-lifting II would be an option if you want to train 4x/wk.

    Please be patient when it comes to post approval.

      Sorry for the nagging . I doubted whether or not I made some mistake while creating the post.

      I'll try to reword the 1st question - In the Strength 1 template, the conditioning frequency and volume starts low and increases, until it starts getting scaled down during the final few weeks.

      Would you recommend me to stick to template Rx in terms of conditioning for the program's duration? Or can I continue to do what I've been doing (3x/week of 30 min LISS and 2x/week of 18 min HIIT)? Apart from these sessions and walking 8-9k steps/day, I'm not really doing regular "cardio" to meet the weekly activity guidelines.

      Thanks very much.

        I would recommend doing the conditioning listed in the program, yes.
