    If it's the michael yessis 1x20 it could work if you were grades 8-12.

    I don't understand the point in trying something that is so general at this point. I could understand if you were trying something a little more specific like Ross deadlift program but doing 1x20 is so general and something you haven't been doing. If you were coming off a 3yr layoff like I was then it could make sense. WMA will be here before you know it - don't let your competition get to far ahead of you. Train hard but train smart!!!!

    Kool. I thought your goal was to sprint fast and dominate on the track.

    In Dr. Yessis’ book “Build A Better Athlete” he says, “in the early stages of training and especially for novices, you should do 15-20 exercises in a typical workout to cover all the major joints and muscles of the body. Because of the need for many exercises, only one set for approximately 15-20RM should be completed. Doing this develops base strength and muscular endurance, and as an extra bonus, you get stronger ligaments and tendons that create more durable joints.”

    WHO COULD USE IT
    So, who exactly would benefit from a 1x20 system? Short answer: Everyone. Long answer: It depends on the athlete and the time of year he is in.

    For professional and collegiate athletes, a one-set system with high exercise variety would help clear up imbalances by doing 15 to 20 exercises daily for two weeks. By varying the exercises to include mobility, single arm and single leg, prehab, single joint, and core exercises, you can prep the body quickly and efficiently for more intense training.

    Powerlifters, much like athletes, could benefit greatly by using it after a meet to help correct any imbalances, rehab injury sites, and develop general mobility and stability through a solid choice of exercises.

    This program's greatest benefit, however, revolves around its ability to build the general development and foundation of youth athletes. The simplicity of the program's design, combined with the rapid improvements in strength and proficiency of training, make this a program worth trying. It is not as ridiculous as you may think!

    I often do DL like squats in that I do the eccentric and don't put the bar down intraset.
