Progressive Powerlifting

The end goal of Progressive Power Lifting is to help your athlete or fitness client go from absolute scratch to a 1 repetition maximum lift of 

  • 80% of body weight or more in the Squat

  • 60% of body weight – or more – in the Bench Press

  • 100% of body weight – or more – in the Deadlift 

99 video clips support the 84-page manual broken down into six sections. 

Section 1: Help your athletes and clients remove the primary block to learning the squat, bench press and deadlift by improving movement specific flexibility

Section 2: Prepare your athletes and fitness clients to learn the squat, bench press and deadlift faster, through simple, functional muscle control exercises that naturally introduce critical technique cues. This section also contains the science of cueing, and our most effective teaching cues collected and refined over 24 years of coaching. 

Section 3: This section explores the synergies between the Power lifts and Olympic lifts. Additionally, variable and random training are defined. The principles of random and variable training are extensively used in the complete program in Section 4. 

Section 4: Gives you an overview of scientific findings on the biomechanics of the squat, bench press and deadlift. Section 4 also explains how these scientific findings have been used to create the complete program in Section 6. 

Section 5: Uses the cues from section 2 and provides you with complete instructional scripts for the squat, bench press and deadlift. Section 5 also gives you an overview of all our best troubleshooting techniques

Section 6: Provides a complete program, 3 microcycles long, to help your athlete or fitness client go from absolute scratch to a 1 repetition maximum lift at the percentage levels listed above.
