#53 – Minimum Effective Dose

13 Feb #53 – Minimum Effective Dose

Matt and Scott revisit the concept of minimum effective dose, elaborating on this bedrock concept of strength development for novice lifters and beyond. The minimum effective dose, as it relates to strength training, fulfills both the “simple” and “effective” conditions of the simple/hard/effective philosophy of training. Why do more in the gym, if less will drive progress?

 

The coaches reflect on some of the intermediate concepts introduced thus far, and how they maneuver a lifter through various permutations of intermediate programming while adhering to minimally effective dosing. Instead of making broad programming shifts between static programs, they will move fluidly between the big program paradigms (Texas Method, HLM, Old Man Texas), titrating variables in small increments to maintain progress.
