Sustainable Training & Performance: Accumulation Block for Weightlifting

An Accumulation Block of training represents the first block of a Macrocycle. It is characterized by low training frequency, high training volume, and low specificity. In the video above, we discuss the significance of the Accumulation Block in the context of the larger Macrocycle. We also discuss the general characteristics of an Accumulation Block, and how Weightlifters, specifically, would incorporate it in their training.
