Both philosophies sound reasonable. But they are contradictory. So which one is better? I think you can guess my answer to that question: It depends on the individual. Minimalism works best for some athletes and maximalism for others, while still others find an ideal spot somewhere in between. Start the process of determining the approach to volume selection that works best for you by embracing the philosophy that is most appealing to you. If you like the efficiency and risk avoidance promised by minimalism, start there. If you like the promise of ongoing improvement and freedom from self-imposed limits that may come with the maximalist approach, start there. Minimalism and maximalism are personality types as much as they are training approaches. Start with the approach that matches your personality. From that point onward, it’s all about experimentation. You must experiment to find out how little training suffices to take you to your goals. You must experiment to find out how much training your body can handle. It is very likely that the experimental process will move you toward minimalism from maximalism and vice versa. For example, suppose you achieve an initial goal using a minimalist approach. Will you not then set a more ambitious goal? And will you not have to at least consider increasing your training volume to achieve it? Likewise, many an experiment with high volume ends in injury and overtraining and encourages the wise athlete to be more conservative in the future.
