The rep and set schemes are built with the goal of gaining pure strength that will help increase endurance performance. Perform four to six sets of three to five reps of barbell exercises like squats, deadlifts and single-leg deadlifts. This allows you to build pure strength without building bulk.
Complete higher reps, such as four to six sets of five to 25 reps, of body-weight exercises. Ballistic exercises are often done in rounds, for example, 20 seconds to 3 minutes and up, depending on performance goals.
These workouts integrate the entire body, improve balance, and build mental toughness.
Warm-up: Foam-roller exercises and joint-mobility drills for 10 to 15 minutes
