Powerbuilding & Weightlifting Week 1


*The goal with this program is hitting an effective number of weekly working sets per movement classification. Adding in specific accessory work will positively contribute to the overall effect/ results, but nutrition needs to at least be in the ballpark as far as total, daily caloric and protein intake for desired, and improved results.

**Movement classifications;

Upper Body Push

Upper Body Pull

Leg/ Squat


***For the each exercise (unless indicated) choose loads that are challenging but allow proficient movement. If it's a loaded movement, you should include AT LEAST three to four warm up sets of increasing intensity toward your working sets that's following a more general dynamic warm up/ stretch.
