Whether it is run for the squat, deadlift, bench, or all three (good luck), the Russian Squat Program (aka Russian Squat Routine) is a brutal peaking program that will help boost maximum strength when prepping for a meet.
Never programming below 80% of the lifter’s 1RM, those that complete this 6 week program can typically expect 5-10% improvements on their 1RM.
The Magnuss Ortmayer (Mag/Ort) deadlift program is a brutal deadlift-only program that has helped tons of lifters add serious weight to their deadlift. If you’re looking to build out your work capacity for deadlifts, this is a great option. This is either an 11 or 12 week deadlift program depending upon if you desire to test your maxes on week 12.
Written and popularized by Redditor Matt Disbrow (aka /u/mdisbrow) – the Deathbench program is a disciple of the “if you want a bigger bench press, bench more” church.
Ah, yes. The infamous Smolov program for squats and Smolov Jr for squat and/or bench. If you’re willing to build these lifts at any cost (e.g. a record attempt) then this might be the ticket!
The powerlifting GOAT, Ed Coan, designed this deadlift program for Mark Phillipi. If you’re looking to make serious deadlift gains, give this 10 week program a try. It programs the athlete to deadlift once per week. Each session includes a heavy triple followed by a high number of speed deadlift triples, then barbell shrugs.
