V.A. Salnikov and B.V. Kimeisha (1979) did a study on the excitability of the nervous systems of weightlifters and found that those with low excitability responded better (more progress in the biathlon total) to larger volumes and those with high excitability responded better to lower volumes. Lifters with high excitability also responded better to high intensity than those with low excitability.

I think they used a method like this to measure excitability.

Ehi Robert, this is a very very interesting thing. I never heard before. Thanks for sharing.

There are a lot of really interesting research papers from decades ago. Unfortunately they are not digitized and so very hard to find and read all the interesting details.

My lab could recreate that project. We won't because there's no money in it though. Sad thing

Could you please tell more about your lab?

what would you like to know? I just moved from another to it, actually haven't started yet. It is a standard, but well equipped bio mechanics lab with Neuro stuff too

Just wondering what kind of research is possible there.
May be you have already written about it before on this forum. If so - sorry. )
I am not a native speaker. It is a bit harder to read in English than in Russian for me. )

I don't think there is anything that is not possible at this lab :)

This is very fascinating and is something I have come to notice when comparing preferred training styles; particularly between myself and FeakGoHome.

I had recently modified the bench gimme's to achieve a higher weekly intensity than otherwise prescribed; in turn suiting me better.
How would you advise changes to a template to suit a lifter with a high excitability vs low excitability. In what ranges would suitable adjustments be made in both volumes and intensities?

For high excitability one could start off with a lower volume template and use inflated maxes. For low excitability a higher volume template is probably fine as is.

Hello everyone, I wanted to ask for more information about the monthly volume and exercises overall development. These exercises are to be considered in the monthly volume? Some exercises such as variations of the deadlift and others do not like abs and iperstensioni? Ultimately what exercises should be included in the monthly statement of the volume workout?
thanks

All comp lifts and comp lift variations are included.

I just attended your workshop in Portland, OR, USA.  This post really helps tie together, how to program given experience level, and how many days a week to train.  Thank you for sharing your knowledge and being a wonderful teacher that took the time to come teach us.

I have to agree with the earlier poster, this forum hits a good balance between interesting theory and hard work, my idea is to rarely reason myself into doing less. One question i'd like to throw out there is, is one of these (high or low excitability) better in way of long term strength potential?

No idea. I'd guess probably not though.
