10 MINUTE FAT BURNING MORNING ROUTINE | Do this every day | Rowan Row
Although strength and muscle hypertrophy can be built simultaneously, the best possible results are achieved sequentially.
This is based on the principle of phase potentiation. Very simply, the adaptations built in one phase of training potentiate the gains of the adaptations built in the next phase.
Most lifters are familiar with the concept of prioritizing muscle hypertrophy first, then (in a second training phase) focusing on strength acquisition.
Here, I’ll take you a little further into the underlying mechanics and logic of the sequential approach to training, while providing a training program to show you what this approach looks like in the real world.
First, let’s look at the actual program. Then, we’ll take a look under the hood to fully understand the reasoning behind this approach.
