General Strength Program Spreadsheets
Strength training programs are designed to increase the maximal force of the athlete's musculature. While the programs emphasize growing the strength of the athlete, they generally will also induce hypertrophy and trigger muscle growth. If hypertrophy is the primary goal, a powerbuilding or bodybuilding program is a better fit.
Strength programs differ from powerlifting programs in that they are not specifically designed to maximize the single rep max of the competition power lifts. However, many strength programs can be reasonably used as off season work for powerlifters as long as the program followed by a powerlifting peaking program before a meet.
