The program alternates between Full Body weeks and Upper/Lower weeks, like this: Week 1 - Full Body [More strength focused] Week 2 - Upper/Lower [More hypertrophy focused] Etc... Also, if you're a bit limited on equipment at the moment, no worries. I first ran through the program in a garage gym with just a power rack, some dumbbells and a few bands. There are some cable/machine options included, but there is also a full list of exercise substitutions for every exercise in the program.

A lot of people seem to think you can’t, (or you shouldn’t) because how you should train to get strong is supposedly very different from how you should train to get big. But I don’t quite agree with this. It’s common to hear that if you want to get strong, you need to lift heavy weights for low reps and if you want to get big, you need to lift light to moderate weights for relatively higher reps. Most personal trainers and textbooks outline clear and distinct rep zones for strength, hypertrophy and endurance. For strength: you lift heavy, for size: you lift moderate and for endurance: you lift light. And while there is some truth to this, it doesn’t capture the full picture. The bottom line is: unless you’re going really, ridiculously light, heavy weights (low reps) AND light weights (high reps) are BOTH effective at building muscle. However, when it comes to strength, the rep range really does seem to matter: it is important to lift heavy to maximize top-end strength development. In this video I will describe periodization and progression examples for powerbuilding (powerliftng plus bodybuilding) based on these principles. - Sources: MASS Volume 2, Issue 5 (🤍bit.ly/jeffMASS) 🤍pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29564973/ 🤍pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24714538/ 🤍🤍strongerbyscience.com/hypertrophy-range-fact-fiction/ 🤍🤍kylehuntfitness.com/in-defense-of-powerlifting-why-its-not-hurting-bodybuilding/ Video was filmed at Florida Extreme Fitness Center in Jacksonville, Fl!

I knew I was onto something when I started doing 3-6 rep sets as working sets with about 75%-85% of my max. It paid off my bench and squat exploded in terms of weight
fuck all this imma just train till failure
What i do is i Choose a heavy load and do low reps (1-5) with it, by time i get stronger i do moderate reps(6-12) with it, by the time i get bigger and then i do high reps (12+) with it, Then as i gain endurance i move to a new heavier load, by this method i can achieve all Three benefits.
Take the jabb because science hahaha
wow, that's a lot of load, if you have to squat 3x a week, means you're not training hard enough but hey, maybe i'm wrong..I really enjoy Jeff's channel
My question is, so Tom Platz got huge legs by doing 20 reps?
Awesome 💯 excatly what I'm currently doing
Thank you Jeff, this video allowed me to place a lot more faith in my current routine.

The people who put your videos together should be paid 3 times what they are getting now. The production quality is of the highest.
And how many sets in the low range reps?
i'm here because the TrenTwins said PowerBuilding is Elite
This video is gold ! Thank you Jeff
OPEDjl88P-4&t=5m56s 5:56 comic sans font made that shout funny
For the deload every couple months how long is that deload period? A week? A month?
Do low reps high weight on bench, squat and deadlift and do high reps moderate weight for machines
i just do 1-5 with the heavy compound movement and the rest 8-15
Thank you for you System 👍🙏👍
Did technique work for a month, my squat never felt so stable. The lower weight helped fix all weak points and imbalances.
