If you have ever put a piece of workout equipment in plain site in hopes that you would use it on a regular basis, then you have dabbled with Pavel’s “Grease the Groove” method.
This theory was cooked up by a former Soviet Special Forces trainer Pavel Tsatsouline, which uses a rather simple equation of “Specificity + Frequent Practice = Success.”
Very simply put, Pavel’s theory states that by doing exercises repeatedly, in small doses, over time you will get better and be able to complete more.
Since you don’t have to do many–it’s easy to work into your daily routine. For example, do a couple of the exercises, like pull ups, push ups or burpees early in the morning, in the afternoon and just before bedtime. In short, you practice frequently so that you improve your overall performance.
The benefit of doing this is you master the exercise quite easily by working it into your regular routine daily and religiously. You make it frequent, almost an automatic movement in you. You do pull-up repetitions for example, of course, not to death or exhaustion, but only until you start feeling stressed and your form starts to fail. This way you will gradually and naturally level your strength up.
Applying Pavel’s technique into your routine will greatly improve your skill in whatever routine you are performing. This everyday training you put yourself through will promote an increased work capacity of a single movement and gradually strengthen your nerve impulse to the different muscles involved thus making them more and more enduring and definitely stronger.
