Building the training cycle correctly

HomeBlogBuilding the training cycle correctly

The main thing in training is to consistently increase the load, because if you do not increase it, then all efforts will go down the drain even when working at the limit of strength. The indicator of the effectiveness of classes should not be shed sweat, but the weights that you use. Their increase causes muscle growth. If you do not add weight, then the muscles will remain the same size. However, constantly increasing the load will not work – power work is difficult for the body. What to do? Cycle the intensity of the loads on the principle of “light-hard”. This rule should be followed by every beginner bodybuilder.

Cycling phases

Preparatory phase

The first phase begins with a week’s rest. After it, you start training with 85-90% of the load from the one that you have already mastered, and gradually increase it to 95%. The main thing here is the polishing of the technique, the correct execution of the exercises, and not the number of repetitions. This will allow you to take a psychological break from intensive training. Also, thanks to a better mastering of the technique, you will automatically insure yourself against injuries that unprepared beginners who train to the point of exhaustion receive.

Prelaunch

Over the next few weeks, gradually “get up” to your past high. You will return to the peak position, but without the feeling that you have reached the limit of possibilities. Now everything is ready to conquer the new scales. Working with a certain number of repetitions will well prepare and strengthen the small muscles that hinder the overall progress of training. In the pre-start phase, it is important to refine the exercises. If one exercise is worse than the others, give it more time or replace it with a similar one.

Growth phase

This is the main stage of the cycle. You are prepared and can squeeze the maximum. Now each training program includes a set of basic, “core” exercises. For example:

  • Pull-ups, incline bench press and sit-ups.
  • Dips, Bent Over Rows and Squats.
  • Limited range deadlift, bench press and squat.
  • Pull-ups, incline bench press and deadlift.

As part of this cycle, the load should increase in each “core” exercise. Gradually increase the previous maximum to 102-105%. Make sure that the auxiliary exercises do not interfere with the growth of the result in the “core” ones – this way you will build more muscles. To save energy, exclude aerobic training and extraneous physical work.

Recommendations for Cycle Training

  • When designing your training program, remember that a long cycle is preferable to a short one.
  • Take the time to fully develop the technique of performing exercises.
  • Leave strength “in reserve” – ​​you will feel that the next workout will achieve more.
  • Do not add to the bar, even if you feel full of energy. This feeling is deceptive. In the next lesson, the new weight may not be up to you.
  • Strength training requires long rest periods between sets – give your body time to catch its breath. Sleep and eat more.
  • Increase the weight gradually with the smallest discs. This will help your muscles get used to the increased load. Remember that a small increase is better than a large one.
  • If you feel like you only have enough strength left for a partial rep, stop. Wait until you can complete the exercises technically perfectly.
  • Do not add load until you have mastered the previous weight.
  • At the third stage, it is more useful to train for several weeks, and not give all the best in one session, trying to complete the cycle ahead of schedule. The load should be added gradually, maintaining the pace for as long as possible. If already in the first week you get to the limit weights, then the second and subsequent weeks you will try to repeat the results achieved, instead of adding repetitions and increasing the weight of the bar.

  1. Rest when you feel tired.
  2. Take a long pause if you feel that it is not difficult for you to do something that was difficult before.
  3. Master new types of workload.
  4. Do something that is not easy, but interesting.

Well, if these rules are enough for you. As for me, I met them many times, but did not take them seriously. I thought these rules were made for lazy wimps, that more training equals more results, that daily exercise is the only way to build the body I want.

If someone had then clearly explained to me what I was wrong about, five years ago I would have had the body I have now.

It’s very simple: you should always have the same difficulty as at the beginning of .

Yes, for me to run 15 laps of the morning interval is just ridiculous. But as soon as I rest for two or three weeks, I run out of steam and five! I don’t try to immediately accelerate my fitness to the maximum, because this way I will reach my comfort zone too quickly and training will become psychologically exhausting for me and useless for my body.

To give all the best, work on technique and constantly improve, you need passion. To keep the excitement, you need to see the result. In the mirror or in the numbers of the fit test – it’s up to you to decide. But if there is no passion, you need to take a break.

Taking a break is a great decision at any time.

I am always very happy when I gain a little weight and lose my shape! This means that as soon as I start exercising, my old result will quickly come and bring more with it. Losing shape forever is impossible. It can only be temporarily lost until a new stage in your sports activities.

I used to stop only when I was sick, or when my psyche gave out, I had a massive nervous breakdown, I hated myself, my body, I punished myself with food, for a long time I could not return to a healthy lifestyle and nutrition, as to manifestations of self-love. I took good, right things, but I did not know the measure in them. I drove myself and suffered from fatigue and lack of results. All it took was learn to relax. I noticed this when I practiced yoga like crazy, daily, for many hours.

I have genetically very weak hip joints and I injured them. I practiced through pain until my body refused to do even the simplest asanas. I violated the main principle of yoga – not violence, in order to be sure that I am not lazy, that I am a warrior, that I did not live in vain for a day. It was quite natural that my subconscious associated an ocean of pain with yoga, and I dreamed of returning to classes, but I could not do it, because I could not stop in time, and my subconscious saw the return to yoga as a return to this pain.

When, after several months, I returned to practice with healed injuries, I found that I could do those asanas that were not given to me before. All the most difficult asanas were mastered by me in the rest mode. That is, I tried to make them, and they did not work out, and after the break, I just did them, as if I always knew how.

Why couldn’t you just take a break and not take it to the extreme?

The same with training. Once I accelerated to 3 full-fledged vorks a day. Naturally, this did not make me slimmer and more attractive. I was very tired and did not have time in my life for anything other than these activities, and their futility was killing me. In addition, I felt that without these trainings I would be blown away, which made me even more unhappy.

It turns out that all that had to be done was give up training for a while and gradually introduce them into your life: one, two a week, in order to see their effectiveness again.

The main secret is not a gradual decrease in the load, but a complete rest, after which you start all over again and keep your load at the “middle of the scale”, where the maximum is what you did when you gave your all attention only to your body.

Remember: your maximum is a dangerous zone, a temporary measure, after which psychological devastation follows.

When a person meets his limit – this is a test, and after it you can not immediately return to your normal life.
