Strength Cycle Data…

July 30th, 2014

The data from the strength cycle is now on the notice board for your viewing pleasure.
Overview of the results:

Average sessions attended (from 12): 8.48
Average percentage increase: 9.95%

Average sessions attended (from 12): 8.22
Average percentage increase: 10.72%

Average sessions attended (from 12): 8.85
Average percentage increase: 8.71%

Things to remember when hyper-analysing these numbers:

- These numbers don’t show you how much better your confidence and positions under the bar improved. This was without a doubt the greatest improvement we observed over the 12 weeks of the strength progression. Position is king!

- These numbers do show you how with consistancy and frequency real gains can be made in you strength. Its also worth noting that these gains were achieved using no “magical” program and the very good majority of the sessions were performed at sub-maximal loads.
