Grease the Groove — The Russian Military Secret to Strength Endurance
Mar 19, 2019 | Medium | John Fawkes.

The Grease the Groove program is completely different. This style of training breaks all of these rules. You lift light weights, you always stop before you get tired, and you train multiple times a day. Often you train more than 10 times a day.
Sound crazy? Sure. But it works. This style of training is popular with some of the world’s most elite trainers and military special operators.

How to Grease the Groove
Grease the Groove (GtG) training follows five principles:
1. It’s specific to a single movement. For example, you might do a grease-the-groove program focused on pull-ups.
2. The weights are light. Usually, you’re working with a resistance that’s light enough for you to do as many as 50 repetitions (although in this training you’ll stop short of that, because the point is not to train to the point of failure).
3. The total training volume is very high, often on the order of 5 to 20 sets per day, every day.
4. The sets are spread out across your day. You do one at a time and rest at least 15 to 30 minutes between sets. You don’t do several in quick succession, as you would in a normal workout.
5. Sets stop well short of the point of fatigue. Typically, for each set you’d do only 30 to 60 percent of the maximum number of repetitions you could do. So if you were doing a weight that you could lift 50 times, you might only do 15 repetitions in your set.

.......here’s something I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone else talk about: Grease the Groove isn’t just for resistance training. You can use it to build endurance with athletic movements too.
What do I mean by athletic movements? Throwing a baseball. Throwing a punch. Kicking a soccer ball. Dribbling basketballs.

The Wisdom of Running a 2,189-Mile Marathon - The Atlantic
Science backs up the notion that this unflinching drive forward is as essential as physical talent for competitors like Jurek, if not more so. Endurance is not all in your head, but as the journalist Alex Hutchinson explains in Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance, the brain plays a pivotal role in gauging exertion and ultimately dictating when it’s time to stop. “The psychology and physiology of endurance are inextricably linked,” Hutchinson writes. “Any task lasting longer than a dozen or so seconds requires decisions, whether conscious or unconscious, on how hard to push and when.” As things get tough, the mind constantly takes stock of physical reserves and negotiates with the body over just how long it can hold out.

This feedback loop is a relatively new model of endurance. Living creatures were long thought to be powered by some inscrutable, vital force. That belief gave way in the 20th century to what Hutchinson calls a “mechanistic—almost mathematical—view of human limits: Like a car with a brick on its gas pedal, you go until the tank runs out of gas or the radiator boils over, then you stop.” But more-recent research into the mind’s influence has made for much trickier analogies. . . .

In her own more reflective way, Jennifer Pharr Davis—the very person whose record Jurek set out to break—ends up confirming the power of compulsive determination in her book The Pursuit of Endurance: Harnessing the Record-Breaking Power of Strength and Resilience. In 2011, she blitzed the Appalachian Trail in 46 days, 11 hours, and 20 minutes—an average of 47 miles a day. Though Davis’s ultrarunning credentials pale in comparison to Jurek’s, she’s no slouch: She’d already completed the trail twice and set the fastest time for women.

“Endurance isn’t a human trait; it is the human trait,” she writes, giving Jurek’s borrowed mantra more philosophical sweep. “We exist only as long as we persist.”
