Adding Contrast Work to Your Training?

Contrast sets ➖ I love them and been doing them a decent amount in my own training lately. Pretty simple…perform a heavier set of a compound exercise (Chin Ups and 2KB Front Squat in this example) followed by a similar explosive movement (Overhead Slam and Box Jump).

✅ Results in a more forceful movement in the second movement (the explosive movement) due to the Post Activation Potentiation (PAP) effect.

✅ Develops more explosiveness/power, which is why I use them a lot with the athletes I work with.

✅ Kind of a fun and nice change of pace from ‘normal’ strength training 💪
