In this week’s edition of Lift Strong Friday, we’ll be reviewing Bill Hartman’s excellent article “Training Deficiencies for Increased Strength.
I’ve known Bill for about two years now, and I’ll tell you this – I’ve learned more from him in that time than I probably have in the rest of my life. Bill is one of the smartest people I’ve ever met in any field, and he’s got the unique ability to bridge the gap between rehabilitation (he’s a physical therapist by trade) and performance enhancement. I’m not saying Bill knows everything, but he’s an amazing resource.
Bill’s article discussed how to evaluate your weaknesses in the weight room, and how to train your deficiencies for rapid improvements in strength. If you want to water it down to a bare bones level, it’s this – if you’re really fast, focus on getting stronger. If you’re really strong, focus on getting faster. This isn’t rocket science for those who have been doing this for a long time, but Bill goes on to outline specific tests to determine your weaknesses, along with giving you programming ideas to get the best results. If you’ve hit a plateau in the weight room, I honestly feel this article alone is worth the price of the entire CD-ROM.
