Loading

Once we Identify the movement patterns, the stance and planes you’re going to move in, we then look at quantitative variables, such as load, speed, duration and density.

Now, there are many interpretations of this but they’re all the same and hinge on three main categories.

1. High velocity
2. Long duration
3. High load

These can also be described in the following way:

  • DE (dynamic effort) refers to developing explosive strength, or maximal muscle power.
  • RE (repeated effort) is synonymous with building work capacity or hypertrophy training. Also known as GPP.
  • ME (maximal effort) is building maximal strength.
