Low Reps, High Sets For Building Capacity

In the video below you will see one of Principle Four Osteopathy clients performing 2* chin up followed by 3* med ball push ups.  Both of these bodyweight exercises are demanding on the body and instead of asking the individual to max out on 1 or 2 sets, we have decided to build volume over multiple sets with low reps per set so that we focus on quality over time.  There are many different ways to build volume into ones program and it is important to vary your strategy (or stimulus on the body) so that it is forced to adapt to an every changing training environment and stimulus.
