5/3/1 for Powerlifting eBook
The 5/3/1 program is one of the most popular and widely used training programs today – and this is because it works. Strength, real strength training, has been lost in the world of fitness. We want heavily knurled bars, chalk and garage gyms. We need heavy squats and deadlifts. We go to extremes for the personal record. There are no secrets to getting strong and the 5/3/1 program has brought back the principles that have been lost among the academics and pencil necks.
5/3/1 for Powerlifting brings the program to the next level. This program remains simple and effective but gives you all the information for how to peak for a meet and display your strength on the platform. Even if you don’t have plans on competing, this book will show you how to push for new one rep maxes and break through barriers.
The principles presented in this book have stood the test of time – these have been used by some of the world’s strongest men in their quest for strength and size. Don’t be fooled by parlor tricks and sleight of hand! Put a bar on your back or in your hands and get to work. 156 pages
"The essence of powerlifting is strength and this is something that has been lost along the way—the art of training, the satisfaction of hard work, the pride of strength. These all lie at the core of powerlifting.
This is a book for people who want to get strong. If you want to join the club, read on. If you're part of the club, welcome back. If you want to piss and moan about judging and how weak you are, thanks for showing up but show yourself out. We're too busy getting better to hold your hand on the way out."
