This approach helps me solve some of the planning/programming conundrums and provides pretty simple framework that could be applied to other domains as well (e.g. HIT conditioning). I also touch on Dan John’s Bus Bench vs. Park Bench analogy, which I think is a game changer concept.

At this stage I am looking for some structure in my training, but cannot be mentally bothered to follow overly prescriptive powerlifting/powerbuilding template (like 5/3/1, Juggernaut, Starting Strength, etc.).

In this video the following topics are covered: 1) The difference between “undulating periodization” and “undulating programming”; 2) The difference between variations and progressions (and similarities); 3) Different combinations of workouts/exercises and set and rep schemes; 4) Uses of “randomizations” (covering the notion that “random workout” is NOT just a “out of your ass” approach to programming, but could...
