Strength 301 Program
Powerbuilding is recommended for lifters with 2+ years of weight training experience and generally an all around healthy body. This is a 3 day training split routine where each day is performed once per week, preferably with one day in between each workout (ie. M, W, F).
The primary goal of this program is full body strength and athleticism with an emphasis on lifts that provide big gains. The risk of injury is higher but still very low when you follow the detailed instructions we provide. On this program you can expect primary barbell lifts such as squat, bench press, deadlift, and push press. Olympic lifting such as power cleans, snatch, & hang cleans are included but on a smaller scale.
The secondary goal of this program is developing lean sculpted muscle. After completing the compound lifts your workout will have a few smaller muscle group exercise to isolate the arms, legs, and torso. This will focus in a high volume of work to a localized area to burn fat and grow muscle.
This is not a scary program. Or at least it doesn't have to be. We have tested this program with multiple healthy and experienced 70+ years olds. The exercises involved are more challenging than the machine work of a simpler fitness program but almost every person who ventures into the world of free weights discovers that that is where the fun is. And also the big benefits.
Besides major improvements in strength, athleticism, and physique, clients who have trained on this program have experienced incredible side benefits such as a healthier younger-feeling back and knees with improvements in posture, balance, and energy. We've heard so many success stories of people following this program, it seems the only benefit we haven't heard yet is X Ray vision. Okay bad joke but the point is, this program is tried and true.
Combine this strength training program with the Cardio, Intervals, and Rejuvenation and you will be a believer too.
