Variation can be used in many different forms and incorporated into your current training program It can help with consistent improvements over time and also minimizes plateaus and prevents boredom or staleness. In addition, you can avoid overtraining by varying your program. It also gives you breaks from the stress of high intensity, high volume training. You can implement variation in many ways such as the number of reps, sets, exercises, order, rest periods, weights, rep speed and even the type of grip you use.
Today I decided to do SLDL as a variation for deadlifts. I am currently going to switch from week to week with Sumo's to help with my progression. Here's how today went.....
SLDL- 1x12@405 / 3x8@455
Leg curls- 1x12 / 1x10 / 2x6
Glute Kickback- 2x10 / 1x8
