For those familiar with the nature of bodily overcompensation, your body adapts in ways specific to how you train (“Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands” Or SAID principle).
I notice RP generally advises to train limit strength primarily through lifting heavy, but doesn’t focus much on other forms of strength such as explosive strength or endurance strength.
For those unfamiliar there are different forms of strength. For example a shot putter has starting strength and explosive strength up the wazoo but might have a 1 rm of 220. No one strength is “stronger.” Historically, who could throw a heavy object the farthest has been the measure of “strongest,” but now it seems limit strength is the RP norm for measuring strength.
Why is that?
Is there anything “not RP” about wanting to have endurance strength primarily? Is German High Volume training or Gironda 8x8 somehow inferior? Am I reading a preference for limit strength into MRP that doesn’t actually exist? If so, why the 1 rm focus?
Edit: my karma sucks so I can’t respond, but I want to thank all of you guys who put in time to answer this question. You guys all have some really in depth answers and I appreciate it.
