12-Week Powerbuilding Program
The perfect plan for those who want to get strong and look the part.Enroll in Course
Look, it’s a fact of gym life: everybody wanna be a bodybuilder. Even the most hardcore of powerlifters want to look good. But many people find that when they start training for hypertrophy, their strength stalls, or even regresses.
It shouldn’t be that way. Short periods of powerbuilding should make you significantly stronger – but only if they’re programmed appropriately.
The big question, of course, is: how do you program to get stronger and still include a good amount of hypertrophy work? In fact, I get asked this question so often that I shared an entire YouTube series explaining how to do it. For me, though – and probably for a lot of you – it’s much, much easier to learn by doing rather than watching.
That’s why I’ve written this program.
The plan is based entirely on the principles of the Unfuck Your Program course: I started with a basic, straightforward progression on main lifts, carefully added accessories, and slowly made changes until I found the proper balance between strength and hypertrophy work. Ideally, you’d follow the same process – but I’ve designed this program to be applicable to nearly everyone, so if you don’t want to spend six months finding your own balance, you can use it as a starting point.
Over time, of course, you’ll still need to make small changes to refine and improve the plan so that it fits your body and your goals, but since you’re not starting from scratch, you’ll have saved yourself a lot of time. You’ll probably have built a lot more muscle, too.

"I wanted to thank you for your program, it's been a great month powering through it!
I´ve been doing powerlifting type of training more or less seriously for about a year now and needed a change in routine (and a break for my aching joints). After the first few workouts I thought I bit off more than I could chew... but decided to stick with it. And I'm glad I did.
My front squat went through the roof and bench press form got more stable. Got a huge PR in the front squat yesterday, f*cking awesome... From now on more squats weekly and no more using my bum knee as an excuse!
I´ve put on bit over 4 pounds of what I´d like to think is mostly muscle mass. My look has definitely changed."

I want to be clear: this program isn't the "secret weapon" you might be searching for. There's no such thing as a secret weapons – except for hard work and consistency. But if you do work hard, and you are consistent, then you'll see phenomenal gains in size and strength following this program.
You can dive in knowing that I trust this program enough to use it myself. I'm a world-record holding powerlifter with over a decade of competing in a wide variety of strength sports, and when I want to gain muscle while still getting stronger, this is what I do. Now, I don't want to bullshit you: this program won't work forever. If you use it again and again and again – and you should – you'll eventually find that you need to make slight changes to continue to see progress. In fact, that's true of any program, and it's the whole point of the Unfuck Your Program course. All that and much, much more is explained in the lessons and videos included with this program.
I hope you'll trust it enough to give it an honest try – I'm confident that you'll be pumped with the results.
