    Is there any good artical or advice on 30min workouts focusing more on the nerual side of strength.

    The only things i could think of were sticking to compound and multi joint movments, and i'm trying to shy away from Charlie Stanelys EDT style.

    Any heavy lifting will yield neural effects, I'm not really sure what you're asking. Lift heavy, stay away from failure.

    A quick workout I used to do was

    3x5 dumbell swings
    3x5 dumbell snatches
    3x5 dumbell c&j's

    Snatches (the lifting kind as well as the human kind) have a tonic effect for some. I know personally that after a few heavy (not to failure) sets of snatches I feel pretty fucking good.

    I don't think you'll get much benefit from training for the neuronal side of strength gain. IMO, you need that, and will develop it early, but thats it. Similar to having strong tendons and whatnot. You get those early in your development, but I wouldn't (assuming it is possible) train tendons alone since I think that wouldn't do anything.

    Neronal development invovles eliminating co-contraction, only activating the appropriate moter neurons, and things like that. Remember your first benchpress? Feet all off the floor, back cramping from the arch, maybe your lats contracting etc... Now, after a few months of training you only contract the appropriate muscles. Also doing things like pullups and rows and fatiguing your back and not your bi's. I don't know how to train that, or even if you could how benificial it would be.

    Basically I will have limited sleep and time for the next few months...so i wanted some guidance on quick workouts. And I want to avoid the metabolic circuit/edt training.

    Anvar, training my CNS to fire at max capacity again is usually priority #1 for me coming back from a workout. I suggest 3-4 workout sessions, each focusing solely on one lift.

    Day One:
    Squats up to max 1-3 rep set

    Day Two:
    Standing OHP 12X2 3X1

    Day Three:
    Deads up to max 1-2 rep set

    Day Four:
    Bench Press up to max 1-5 rep set, 1-2 downsets

    Just an off the cuff workout idea that'd focus on neural adaptation to major lifts.

    I'm not sure what you are getting at but low reps stress the CNS alot.

    Problem is that training for max neural stimulation isn't optimal for promoting growth and you'll get burnt out (fatigued) alot sooner than you think especially if you haven't adapted yet.

    Cleans, snatches, overhead squats with low-moderate reps may be what you are looking for?
