Strength Endurance - Workout Plan for Athletes

Strength Endurance – Workout Plan for Athletes

This kind of workout plan you have never done! Leveling up your strength endurance.

  • Goal: improving strength resistance
  • Technical complexity: difficult
  • 2-Day Split
  • Duration: 90 – 120 minutes
  • 2 times a week

This workout plan does not aim to increase muscle mass or raw strength. This plan purely focuses on increasing your ability to perform exercises that require explosive strength for only more than approximately 2 seconds at a time.
The workout is particularly beneficial for:

  • hockey players
  • football players
  • baseball players
  • martial arts enthusiasts

This program is comprised of using heavy weights, shortened rest times and a high volume. In order to achieve a high volume, it is recommended to compete 6-20 sets per exercise. The weight should be 60 – 70 % of your one rep max with 30 second rests, OR 80 – 85 % of your one rep max with 60 second rests (This is how you calculate your one rep max>>). This workout plan follows a particular progression which focuses on increasing the weight little by little once you can manage completing the sets using clean techniques. On the other hand, you may shorten your recovery time as opposed to increasing weight depending on whether you started with slightly lighter weight or a longer recovery time.

Do the workout 2 times a week. Don’t rest for too long or the duration of the workout becomes rather long. Do the reps as fast as you can!
