This video goes over a user-submitted topic on the central nervous system. In the world of Powerlifting, many lifters are worried about “overtraining” or “frying their CNS”. So, in the video, I go over the idea of stress and how there are so many variables that can affect your recovery rate and rate of progress. During the video, I bring up an article by Greg Nuckols on Stronger By Science that goes over a study on the effects of stress on recovery.
My name is Arian Khamesi and I’m a Powerlifting Coach under Squats & Science. In addition, I’m involved in the sport of Powerlifting as an athlete, meet director, referee, scoring manager, committee member, and more. On this channel, I produce videos that are beneficial for Powerlifting athletes, coaches, meet directors, and referees. The videos will be most applicable to those involved in an International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) affiliate, like USA Powerlifting (USAPL). But many of the tips and tricks can also be used for those involved in other Powerlifting federations.
