Barbell Club Phase 6

Posted 26th May 2015 by Josh Schouten

Phase 6 will see us building to a 1RM in the Bench and Squat in the later weeks. Be sure to know your %’s for A’s. This should not be exceeded and no failed reps in the first 3 weeks!

A lot of clients are asking about muscle recovery and what they can do to recover quicker. A simple solution to this is BCAA’s (Branched Chain Amino Acids). There are 3 in particular we are looking at for muscle recovery:┬áleucine, isoleucine, and valine. The quicker we can get these in the system the quicker we can recover. Dosages are shown to be varying in different populations. A great place to start is 7-10 grams/ workout. If you’re after faster recovery and would like to know more read the links below and then come and see one of the staff for more on how you can recover quicker.
