<aside> 💡 Update: Summer 2022 - It’s been a few years since I’ve updated this guide or advanced the draft of the mobility guide. Given other commitments, it’ll be some more time until I revisit these. Still working through and refining my approach here, largely centered around active and full range of motion work (a, b).

A few of you have asked about my current training approach to strength training. Nothing notable to state here; my training generally still accords with what’s outlined in the guide below, with slightly less overall intensity given the physical demands of one of my jobs.

Preamble


Over the last couple of years, I've talked to many people about my high-intensity, low-frequency (HILF) approach to strength training.

Quite a few have expressed interest in trying it.

Aside from walking them through the approach one at a time, I've had no consolidated reference I could point them to, given the disparate sources I've synthesized the methodology from.

Hence, this guide is my attempt to outline my methodology in a singular and cohesive synthesis. I will note upfront the methodology is most directly derivative of Philip and Martina Chubb.

I've tried to make this the guide I would have liked to read ~1.5 years ago when I started exploring a HILF training approach.

I think the guide is still imperfect - it's reliant on external resources for most of the videos and sources which often conflate techniques. Having said that, I think it's sufficient to explain the approach. With this guide in hand, you have no more reason to continue training like a pleb. 😎
