I had a question in regards to tapering, if there is much at all, for chris, steve, mike, etc. What does the last month before competition look like on the Bulgarian System? Does the number of reps decrease or number of heavy singles either at a max or MTR? What about number of sessions and intensity/volume? Thanks alot Caleb
You guys know I am pretty darn close to a Bulgarian training method proponent with elite lifters these days (I still believe back squats are extremely beneficial) though I believe in greater variety with beginners and some low key supplemental work even for elites. Still, I am more than ever sold on the Bulgarian approach (with some low key supplemental and light technical stuff based on individual need)! Instead of pulls, do another segment of the lifts! Try to hit that daily max twice or thrice or four times! Train twice a day or even thrice, with workout maximum set high but realistic! Avoid misses but push! Its a style that suits me and works for me and I can imagine the possibilities with it when I was younger. I really think this is the way to go.
Chris, can you detail what other segments of the lift you would do other than puls? I assume you mean squat?
Obviously the Bulgarian philosophy works at its core and in variations like the Greeks did and Turkey (who seems to train almost exactly lke Ivan suggests with the addtion of lifts from blocks), however how do we explain the continued success of Russia and the success of China who both presumably use more variation?
Aren't most training close to Bulgarians during comp phase anyway?
What is the predominant method used by most of the latest medalists?
My coach has me do pulls but I am a definite beginner and this is only part of the program. I still do not use a lot of variation though. Many have aparently seen the Bulgarian juniors do pulls as well.
