So, what is this Linear Periodization I speak of? Well this, is your best friend when it comes to gain unbelievable strength! The basic idea of Linear Periodization is that you will lift extra weight each week and you will lower the amount of repititions you must do every 2 weeks. But this doesn't mean every week you add 5kg more! As long as you don't add too much weight each week you should keep progressing. Even if you only lift 0.5kg or 1kg more its still an improvement in strength and remember there is 52 weeks in a year so 52 multiplied by 1 is 52 more kg of strength!
So these are the directions in which you should use this amazing strength promoting method:
Frequency: Since there are 3 days of workouts which I will be showing you later, you will need to complete each workout just 1 day a week. When it comes to off-days you should do a workout, rest one or 2 days, then do another, rest another day or two, and then do the last. Don't get too addicted and miss days of rest because you will need it believe me!
Time Needed To Complete A Workout: Each workout should take no more than an hour. Therefore, you will only need to train 3 hours a week! Many people think you need to work for hours a day everyday to see substancial gains in the gym. But they are wrong. Less is more applies alot when it comes to working out!
How To Complete This Method: Every week, the amount you lift for your main exercise in each gym session will get heavier. Every two or three weeks you will do less repetitions. You will always be completing two sets of each exercise in each and every workout. This program will last around 10 weeks.
The sets and repetitions you will be performing for the next ten weeks are as follows:
WEEK 1: 2 sets 10 reps
WEEK 2: 2 sets of 8 reps
WEEK 3: 2 sets 8 reps
WEEK 4: 2 sets of 5 reps
WEEK 5: 2 sets 5 reps
WEEK 6: 2 sets of 5 reps
WEEK 7: 2 sets 3 reps
WEEK 8: 2 sets of 3 reps
WEEK 9: 2 sets 2 reps
WEEK 10: 2 sets of 2 reps
You must be careful about which weights you pick. Every week, if you had to you should have been able to do 2 more repetitions than you are going to be doing. This will make sure that you don't hit your peak too fast. You might be wondering why some reps don't change some weeks. It doesn't matter because you will still be lifting more weight. When you do significantly less repetitions than the week before, you will be able to lift alot more weight. Don't worry
I didn't forget about rest times. You can rest as long as you like so that you can lift as much as you can! And yes you should still be doing a decent amount of warm-up sets to lead up to the applicable weight.
