This is a 6 week week bench press program based upon the Prilepin chart. As it only utilizes two bench press training days per week, I’d probably recommend it for more advanced bench pressers that are not able to recover from three bench press training days per week.[Read more…]

A bench press pyramid is a method of bench press training wherein volume starts high with low intensity and ends low with high intensity. This pyramid shaped change in volume and intensity can occur within a single training session or across multiple training sessions.[Read more…]
This is a 10 week deadlift program designed for building up work capacity during the competitive off-season. It was shared by Alex Bromley (Empire Barbell) on his YouTube channel, where he shared his experience using this style of deadlift training to help prepare for a strongman competition.[Read more…]
The Ancient God Deadlift Routine was developed with beginners and low intermediates in mind. It is low-medium in volume, which leaves plenty of recovery room for accessories.
The goal is to add kilos to your max deadlift while making you comfortable with working with weights closer to your max for doubles and triples, all without leaving you drained for the other sessions of the week. [Read more…]
The 30 day squat challenge is a relatively easy way for a beginner to begin incorporating a variety of bodyweight squat variations into their exercise routine.

It ends with completing two singles at 105% of the lifter’s beginning 1 rep max. [Read more…]
Deep Water is a 4 day (or 5 day if you do the recommended active recovery) strength program designed by Jon Andersen. It runs for 6 weeks and is infamous for its “100 reps in as few sets as possible” workouts for squat, deadlift, and push press. For this reason I have included this program in the squat program and deadlift program collections as well.
You could run this only for the squat, deadlift, or overhead press, though that was not the original intent of the program. [Read more…]
