What do you do when LP stops working and why would you make those changes? In this episode, Matt delivers a lecture to college students about the reason underpinning his programming methodology.
Programming theory comes from the stress, recovery, adaptation cycle, in which a lifter disrupts homeostasis with a stress, recovers, and then adapts to be able to prepare for a greater amount of that stress. Programming also relies on specificity--training for a marathon does not help you train for a powerlifting meet.
When it comes to stress and recovery, total stress matters. This means stress from other aspects of your life can negatively affect your recovery and adaptation ability. Coaches must take this into account.
When it comes to variations of the lifts, these either increase or decrease the range of motion or time under tension, which ultimately increases or decreases the intensity.
