Why are they against one neural intensive method but for another one? The fact is that the nervous system is an adaptive system just like the rest of our body and it can become more efficient at stimulating muscle contraction when it’s trained properly. And while the CFS is a real problem, its occurrence in bodybuilders or individual training for muscle mass gains is minimal, close to nil. Sure, we can suffer from CNS fatigue after a training session (just like our muscles are fatigued too), but the body can recover from that.

The fewer calories you consume, the less weekly sessions you should have. - 58 - Examples of good weekly training splits While I would suggest starting by training each muscle group twice a week (and adjust the frequency depending on how your body is reacting) the actual number of training sessions per week will depend on your own capacity to tolerate physical stress, your nutritional intake, and the level of non-training related stress you are under each day. Obviously the less stress you are under, and the better nourished you are, the more weekly training sessions you can have.

Potentiation exercises: Potentiation means “to make more potent”. These exercises are similar in objective to the activation ones in that they increase neural efficiency. However it does so specifically by targeting the fast-twitch fibers (HTMUs) and improving your CNS’ capacity to recruit them. Explosive lifts and plyometric drills are the main exercises in that category. Once again, these lifts are not prime muscle-builders (although they are more effective in that regard than activation exercises) but they will increase the efficacy of any subsequent training.
