Matt and Scott first discuss the idea of minimum effective dose programming, explaining why and how they modify programming to continue to drive strength adaptations for their clients.
What are the main cards we have to play to continue progress after LP? They are intensity, volume, frequency, and exercise selection. We drive intensity for intermediate lifters. They have primarily done 5s, so the weight goes up and they move form 5 to 3 to 2 to 1. They both realize their previously-developed strength and develop the ability to produce maximal force--physically and mentally.
Moving to increase volume is less fun, requires longer workouts, and takes the focus away from strength. Let’s hold off on volume and complexity until we have to and let the lifter learn to overcome increasingly heavier loads.
