Lead author Tudor Bompa demonstrates how to use periodized workouts to peak at optimal times by manipulating six different training phases: anatomical adaptation, hypertrophy, mixed, maximum strength, muscle definition, and transition.
This edition also presents a revolutionary metabolically based approach--created by Maura Di Pasquale, an internationally renowned physician--that allows readers to structure their diets to meet their individual metabolic profiles.

Fastest Way To Progress (Periodization)
Serious Strength Training
This variant provides most of the benefits of the power snatch from the hang; however, as the bar is caught at the chest or rack position, more weight can be handled, which means more strength and power benefits. This exercise requires the bar to be taken to an overhead position from the rack position. Using a full range of motion builds more strength and muscle than partials. Go all the way down until you touch your chest. And lock your elbows at the top so your skeleton holds the weight. Joshua has been a fixture in the world of health and fitness for over 15 years.
