I'm interested in the concept of "priming" the central nervous system for optimal performance before a maximal effort. Being a small guy who's not interested in gaining any weight I am looking to gain strength primarily via CNS efficiency, not hypertrophy.
1. Has anyone tried the method of supramaximal holds as described in this article? http://www.tmuscle.com/free_online_a...med_for_muscle
If so, was it successful and how frequently did you do it?
2. Should you prime the CNS for muscular endurance activities, and if so, how? For example I am trying to maximize my deadhang pullup numbers. Lately when going for a maximal set I have just been jumping on the bar cold and banging them out. Should I be doing a couple weighted PU's before my maximal set to prime up?
