1. In the very beginning as you first get into the program, you will absolutely benefit from taking more time simply to practice.
The time you take early on will reward you in spades with higher overall skill development.
That means it is a PROCESS: learning, applying what you learn, practicing, refining, videoing, and then going at it again. Rinse and repeat.
As you think about this – obviously, none of this is very applicable if you are doing only ONE set – all out, as you are instructed to when actually doing the program training.
As a result, we should acknowledge one thing up front: the way I’ve laid out this course – with only one set to total temporary failure being THE focus and intent – that should be your ultimate goal.
In the beginning, however, you’ll benefit from spending time practicing and refining skills. Which will mean multiple reps and sets, potentially. As well as frequent practice sessions, perhaps more than one in a day or on subsequent days.
2. As you improve your skill level (both proper execution of the movements AND your ability to generate maximum tension while going to complete temporary failure), you’re going to be working harder within each session. They will be short sessions because of the nature of the course. Efficient and effective! But they’ll also be potentially taxing physically and mentally.
Which means you WILL NEED additional recovery after each session, before going after it again.
In summary, the better and stronger you get, the more rest and recovery you’ll need after each session.
The bottom line: the more you challenge yourself IN the session, the more rest may be required before going after it again.
