ME: Shoulder Press

ME = Max Effort. Typically working to a 2 rep max for 5 sets but not limited to that. If 1RM PR is there take it, if not don’t. To perform the max effort method progress to heavy weights for 1 to 3 repetitions per set. The heavy load (near max weight) recruits the most motor units. The lifter will learn to fire these motor units in a more efficient way and improve motor coordination (your body’s “wiring” for using muscle). During max effort we are primarily training muscles rather than movement. I will clarify. The purpose of an agility ladder is training a movement. Heavy squat is for training muscles.
