    Default Reactive Training Manual by M. Tuchscherer

    A manual of ideas for powerlifting and supposedly weightlifting and strongman training...has anyone read this manual? Concepts are similar to the ones used here in that high volume routines are used, cycles of 3-4 week blocks volume/peaking, etc.

    A section covering the assigning of RPEs that overlay percentage based programs such as Sheiko and Russian Squat programs. Basically no more guessing what your max is. The only thing I see a problem with here is that the RPEs wouldn't seemingly account well for the waving of intensity and volume based off average intensities that are the backbone of percentage based programs.

    Most interesting I guess are the different 4 week blocks that regulate volume based off how you are feeling that day. This sounds similar to a self designed Bear program.

    Supposedly most of the ideas in the manual are based off of concepts from Supertraining.

    I think it's great.
    It's a tool that helps you "feel" your body, or the tiredness of your body. You can use it with anykind of program because it's just a tool.
    With it you can far easier choose the weights you wanty to use with volume or intensity training. And you will know when to stop the training, when you have done enough. Some days 5x5 will be 7x5, others will be 3x5. etc.

    Mike is one of the best 275 lb drug-free RAW and GEARED lifters in the world today. He works out by himself in his garage! His methods obviously work!

    Default How advanced is this manual?

    I saw the video of him squatting 900X2 rather easily. A strong man for sure in all three disciplines!

    What concerns me I guess is this quote:

    "This manual is especially for the intermediate level Powerlifter that is trying to come into an advanced level."

    Mike is an elite level athlete using the concepts in this manual. I wonder just how strong this man could become if he were to use the advanced concepts that are in Beyond Bodybuilding.

    I was interested mostly in the concepts of regulating volume within the framework of 4 weeks cycles using fatigue stops and percentages. I have a feeling this is mostly for those who don't know exactly where their CNS at any given point in a cycle. But it seems like it would be great for doing different kinds of Bear cycles.
