Maximize Motor Unit Recruitment - Get Bigger, Leaner, and Stronger

October 30, 2013

Video

In this video from the NSCA's 2013 Personal Trainer Conference, Chad Waterbury discusses how to maximize motor unit recruitment. Chad discusses three ways to recruit more motor units - lift heavy, accelerate sub-maximal loads, and train with high-tension movements.

Muscle Activation and Strength Training

June 1, 2017

Article

Periodization of training is based on the principle that different loads (e.g., light, moderate, or heavy) or power requirements recruit different types and numbers of motor units. Recruitment order is important from a practical standpoint for several reasons.
