Prilepin’s Table Explained.
Have you ever wondered what (or why) certain reps go with certain sets and in certain percents…??
So there was this dude named A.S. Prilepin who gave an incredibly practical contribution to the intensification of modern training.
And he plays a big part in the what and why of sets, reps, and percents.
It’s very simple to use and understand.
Prilepin’s Table: THE BIG IDEA
Near Limit and Limit Loading and…
- A significantly higher intensity of loading in which the most effective lifts are with near limit weights;
- And the application of the optimum number of sets and repetitions with a fundamental weight within a workout, varied in individual exercises, workouts, and periods of training.
Since his contribution and development, it has been used by some of the most world-renowned coaches on the face of this planet. In fact, it’d be hard to find successful training programs and systems that don’t, in some way, adhere to his methodology.
A.S. Prilepin is connected with a 10-year history of Soviet weightlifting (1975 – 1985). He was the head coach of the national junior team from 1975 – 1980 and head coach of the national senior team from 1980 – 1985. The USSR earned 24 gold, 19 silver, and 4 bronze medals in the total at the junior world championships and 20 gold, 15 silver and 3 bronze medals at the world senior championships, including 5 gold and 3 silver medals at the 1980 Olympics.
He also found workouts where a fundamental weight with the optimum number of lifts was more effective than a tiered distribution of increasing weights for 1 -3 lifts per set and an abrupt conclusion with the heaviest weight.
A.S. Prilepin was the first to research the optimum training load for each weightlifting exercise of the weightlifter’s workouts.
