How Often Should You Train to Get Stronger Without Getting Hurt?

It’s time for another episode of STRONGER TV. Last week we went over how to deal with hip pain during sumo deadlifts. Make sure you check that one out if you haven’t already.

This week we do something a little different and have a nice white board discussion. Today’s topic is all about training frequency and volume. How do we manipulate sets, reps and total volume over the course of time to continue progressing in the gym while making sure we don’t fall victim to overuse injury.

In the video below we cover:

  • How total training volume correlates with injury
  • How spikes in training volume create injury
  • What a spike in training looking likes
  • How to manipulate rest days to optimize recovery
  • How to incorporate RPE to increase training volume
  • How to manipulate accessory exercises to meet training goals
  • Manipulation of exercises in-season vs. out of season
  • How individual differences and past injury history will affect how much volume someone can tolerate

Check it out in the video below!

So there it is. Hopefully after watching the video you can start troubleshooting the training volume in your own and others programs to keep progressing and safe. As always, if you enjoyed today’s content then please head over to our youtube page and subscribe, give us a thumbs up and share it with your friends!

Always training,
