07:50 Periodization is the organized structure to your training.
09:15 Your workout program should respect your goals.
11:10 Changing up your modality can accelerate weight loss during the adaptation to that modality.
11:35 The overload principle is where you do more than you did previously: weight, weight lifted over time or weight lifted in a session.
12:40 The gas principle is your general adaptation syndrome, which can lead to maladaptation.
13:10 Four to 6 weeks is time to make changes/variations.
14:10 Hypertrophy is the building of the muscle. Strength is when we ask the muscle to express more force.
17:30 Your recovery is more difficult if you are always redlining during your workout.
20:10 Powerlifting focuses on the glutes. Glutes stabilize the pelvis and helps keep the spine in a neutral position.
21:55 Strong lats and glutes are important for injury prevention and performance.
23:05 Hamstrings help stabilize the pelvis.
27:40 Raw lifting does not use clothing or other accessories that assists with the lift (geared). Raw and geared are separated in competition.
31:00 You can improve your pullup strength with bands.
31:47 Bands accommodate resistance. They are a great way to offload and assist in the bottom portion of the pullup movement.
36:10 Isometrics have been shown to have a pain-relieving effect.
37:00 Yielding isometrics is holding the weight for a period of time before completing the whole rep. Overcoming isometrics is like pushing the bar into an immoveable object.
37:40 Sticking point is where the bar or movement slows down the most, showing where you are weakest in your range of motion.
38:15 Tempo is when you pause where you are weakest or just before where you are weakest.
41:25 A similar movement pattern with fast movement, twitching, can potentiate a lot of type 2 muscle fibers and recruit bigger motor units.
42:05 Failure in lifting is your body giving you feedback and inhibit the muscle from producing force as a way to protect it.
50:20 Bands and suspending weights adds variables that require building of stability. Chains can be used for hypertrophy or strength..
54:00 Increasing the weight as you get stronger, begs you to put more force into the movement.
54:50 Power can be developed with a wide range of intensities.
55:30 Chains for workout are usually ¾ inch or 5/8 inch in 5- or 6-foot chunks. You can layer lighter chains, but you can order online.
59:30 With the Kabuki Kratos flywheel training system, the harder you pull or push (moving the flywheel), the harder it pulls back on you.
01:04:50 Kettlebells are a versatile tool.
