062 - Mike Israetel on synergy and interference in training for powerlifting

June 27, 2019

Dr Mike joins the boys for a discussion on the basis of phasic structure. We talk about what adaptations underpin powerlifting performance, how training specifically for certain adaptations may aid or interfere with others, and the implications that this has for program design. We also talk about changes in lifters' developmental needs over their careers and why the relative duration and degree of observed interference between different training styles may change with time.
