Bodybuilding Phase Training
by Lester Maurice
Author of The Matrix Mass System
Phase training is something that is as old as bodybuilding because
there is no way that progressive resistance continues on an even
curve. As much as we would like that to be the case the truth is
that sports science has now proven that we grow in phases and not
constantly the same.
Sports science has monitored the HGH (human growth hormone) that
is released in bodybuilders and they have measured these levels
throughout the year. What they found is that even if the trainer
does not change the intensity of the workouts the amount of HGH
released into the system is constantly changing.
They tried to plot it in such a way that they could predict these
spurts of growth hormone and help the bodybuilder to change his/her
training to suit the production of HGH. The bottom line of these
experiments is that it varies greatly from person to person.
But what was established was that your HGH comes and goes and that
is why you may reach that dreaded plateau and stop putting on muscle.
Often the most effective remedy is to stop training completely for
a week and give yourself time to completely repair if you have been
training high intense workouts.
But phase training is something that started when bodybuilding
competitions first started as the competitors realized that they
need to "peak" at the right time.
Included with phase training would be something like doing forced
reps for a few weeks and then going back to a normal training
routine. The same can be said for any type of training system from
doing negatives to pyramids one should not get into a habit of
only training a specific way.
In order to achieve the results of progressive resistance training
one needs to make sure that your body is always adapting to new
stress, new angles, new ways of increasing the neuromuscular
pathways and new movements. The best way to keep track of this is
to record your workouts regularly.
When starting a new type of training one should set a target of
between four to six weeks before stopping and going back to
"normal". It is important that whenever you train you are aware
of the stress that you are giving that specific muscle group and
obviously the most important factor in achieving any gains is the
ability to focus.
