For those who lift weights, there is a basic, first situation when it’s not a good idea to take intensity prescriptions: when the lifter is a newbie. And there are two simple reasons for that. 1. These powerlifters either don’t have 1RMs to base it on or the 1RMs they have are not correct. (The latter reason occurs due to a mix of multiple factors, including limited technical ability, limited mobility and poor neurological efficiency.) 2. New powerlifters usually progress very quickly to the next routine. There are millions of ways on how to compose good weightlifting workout programs. Some coaches stay true to a few basic plans on such training. They simply tweak them for different skills and experience levels. But we are sticking to a different plan. We put our focus on intensity (actual weights) prescriptions for any specific powerlifter. I personally am sure there are times when both approaches are applicable, even within the same workout session.
