I've had a lot of demand for a powerbuilding program that includes strongman training, so here it is! This is not intended as a program to prepare you for a strongman competition. This is a hypertrophy program that will also help to develop strength on the overhead press, deadlift, carries and drags. So, don't be scared off if you don't have access to many traditional strongman implements. While I recommend having access to a commercial gym to use this program, you will be able to complete it in a well-equipped home gym.
Here are some details about the program:
- It's a six-week program designed to be run multiple times.
- It use a four-day split: two full-body days, one upper day and one lower day.
- It uses a combination of percentage-based and RPE-based training.
- It's a lot of fun!
The course also includes references to my suggested execution of most movements in the program, advice on modifying the program to fit your needs, and access to my list of recommend supplements for recovery.
I have been competing in strength sports for nine years.
In 2015 I became the first 83-kilo drug-free lifter to deadlift 700 pounds in competition.
In 2016 I won best overall lifter at Boss of Bosses 3. The following year I won best overall lifter at the US Open, and set the all-time, all-federation world record total of 2,039 at 198 pounds.
In 2018 I earned my PhD in the history of strength and physique development from the University of Texas at Austin.
In 2021 I earned my IFBB pro card at the USA Championships in the superheavyweight division.
My next goals are to compete at the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding contest and total over 2300 pounds in powerlifting.
