We have two primary variables to manipulate to keep driving up stress and progress: intensity and volume. Frequency and exercise selection are secondary, as frequency is ultimately a function of volume. Supplemental exercises are also a function of volume and intensity, as they either decrease or increase time under tension or the range of motion.
We have to build fatigue to increase performance, and we’re most concerned with strength. At times--especially as an advanced lifter--we have to build up fatigue and temporarily decrease performance to deliver enough stress and then continue to train, allow fatigue to dissipate, and allow performance to peak and thus elicit an adaptation. This means the SRA cycle has lengthened.
