Can you have too great a work capacity as a lifter or be able to do too much volume? Having high work capacity is great and being able to do high volumes of work will give you the opportunity to build more muscle and strength, but the work has to be productive towards your goal, which if you're a powerlifter, is the highest 1rm on competition day. As I look at the training of many lifters, I see some lifters who are capable of performing very high volumes of heavy work, work that I look at and think, 'damn, I'd have a hell of a time with that' and I fancy myself to be able to handle some hard work. So how is it that these athletes are doing sessions like 585 for 6 sets of 7 in the squat, but have 1rm in the low 700s (if that)? These lifters are building great work capacity at the expense of specificity towards powerlifting (the most specific thing to powerlifting is the 1rm) and in doing this are training their bodies and nervous systems for reps and recovery, converting to more slow twitch fibers and less explosive qualities. This issue seems to be most prevalent in people employing a DUP style of training but mind you, it isn't an inherent problem in that type of training by any means. So while work capacity is great and high volume has it's place in training, there must be a transition towards lower volumes to allow conversion back to fast twitch fibers and explosive nervous system qualities as competition approaches. This concept is part of the movement from variation to specificity. Learn more about these concepts in Consolidation of Stressors-Part 1 and 2...LINK IN PROFILE

Note: Turn on your sound before watching this video. When Coach Wu (@wuchuanfu) and I first started chatting, he told me he could make out how a lifter finished the second pull by the sound of the bar as it passed the hips. Having never contemplated this quality of weightlifting before, I couldn't fully appreciate the depth of this information. In the earlier days when I would send him a video where I thought I achieved the desired technique, he would respond that I still hit the bar with my hips as opposed to pushing it up with my quads (even though to me it seemed as if I achieved both hip and knee extension). Confused, I asked how he could tell. His answer was simply, "Easy. You can hear it in the sound of the barbell." Now that my new technique is finally starting to (albeit still a work in progress) take shape, I am beginning to connect the dots on all the subtleties Coach Wu discussed with me early on. Video one is the classic "shift into the heels to load the hamstrings like a rubber band" technique and video two is the Chinese method of "staying in the mid
