In a new video on Athens-X channel, Jeff Cavaliere CSCS explains how he was able to continue training while recovering from a fairly serious shoulder injury, by reducing the volume of the exercise and increasing the load. He uses his chest and back exercise as an example, demonstrating how this approach can stimulate the muscles in a new way.
“What will bother a damaged structure is not the load, but the accumulation of more and more rotation on the tire,” he says, via an automotive metaphor. “So the volume is what you need to work on when there’s a problem… The volume will exacerbate the underlying condition that’s already there.”
Instead of doing one high-volume set after another, Cavaliere focuses on doing fewer reps at a higher intensity in each exercise, increasing the weight and leading to failure in each set. “If I try to rush through my sets and lose good form, then I lose my stability and suddenly the structure comes out,” he said.
The training session begins with a push-up on the floor and a press-up on the bench, done for 1 to 2 sets. Cavaliere recommends using weights high enough that you can fail between 6 and 10 reps. He follows this with 1 to 2 innings of service, failing between 15 and 20 innings.
This is followed by another superset, this time with straight arm push-ups with cable and downward pull (1 to 2 sets, failure between 6 and 10 reps), and 1 to 2 sets of straight arm pushups (15 to 20 reps). represent).
“If you’re not used to these really low-volume workouts or these extreme high-intensity endeavors, this will be a new stimulus for you that will push you to the edges of what you’re comfortable with.” and exactly where you want to go,” Cavaliere said.
