neurotype 1a



Program introduction

The 1A seeks to « beat the workout » and is performance-driven.

This program, uses the basic Omni-Contraction Training system structure of three whole-body workouts per week, one focused on emphasizing the eccentric portion of the lift, one adding an isometric action to your sets, and one where concentric is king. These three workouts revolve around big multi-joint movements.

We also add a fourth training day that focuses on muscles that might have been neglected during the main sessions, to make sure that you have no weak links preventing you from reaching the highest level of performance at the end of the cycle. This day is similar to a “Dorian Yates style” workout where you take one or two work set(s) to failure and beyond with methods such as rest/pause and multiple rest/pauses.

Main methods: slow eccentrics, stat-dynamic, clusters, lifts from pins, ramps to the max, rest/pause

Main training effect: The greatest increase in strength with some hypertrophy to help you lift more

One of the main benefits of the Neurotyping System is to optimize your training to your personality and response to various types of stress. Some personality types will crave variation while others perform better when the tasks to perform stay similar over time.

You have those who love and tolerate heavy lifting while others will crash on such a regimen but will thrive on a higher volume, lower loads plan. This is why I designed these plans: so that you will find the best fit for your brain and body, leading to optimized motivation, stress response, and progress.

I want to make one thing clear:

Each of these five programs is super effective in their own right. Meaning that anybody who uses any one of the five will get solid results if they follow the plan, even if it doesn’t fit their neurotype. But if you match your neurotype with the proper program you will get better results and will feel better and more motivated during the 12 weeks of the plan.

All five programs use my  Omni-Contraction Training System which combines eccentric, isometric, and concentric methods in each training phase.

Program overview

This program is about intensity and strength!

This program is thus built on increasing strength on the big basic lifts and use the OCTS system.

At the end of the program, you will have added lots of pounds (or kilos) to your bench, squat, and deadlift. In fact, it can even be used as a powerlifting program.

You thus get the best of both worlds: The Neurotyping System and the OCTS!
