WHAT’S NEW IN POWERBUILDING PHASE 2.0?

1

EVERYTHING! IT’S A WHOLE NEW PROGRAM!

Powerbuilding Phase 2.0 is a brand new program that builds on many of the foundations laid down in Phase 1. Even though you don’t NEED to run Phase 1 before Phase 2, I do recommend it. Phase 2.0 blends the very best of bodybuilding and powerlifting training styles to create one of the most effective and motivating ways to train.

2

ALTERNATES FULL BODY STRENGTH TRAINING WITH PUSH/PULL/LEGS HYPERTROPHY WEEKS.

One of the most common bits of feedback from Phase 1 was that people loved the variety from week to week. On odd weeks (Week 1, 3, 5, etc) we focus on strength with full body training and on even weeks (Week 2, 4, 6, etc) we focus on building muscle with push/pull/legs workouts. Because push/pull/legs is only feasible on a 6x/week split, on the 4x version of the program, we will use an upper/lower split again for the hypertrophy weeks.

3

FOCUSES SLIGHTLY MORE ON BUILDING MUSCLE.

Phase 1 can be thought of as the foundation – now it’s time to build the house. With more exercise variation, increased advanced intensity techniques and slightly more volume, this program leans more into the “building” side of Powerbuilding. Still, you will be training each of the powerlifts (or variations of them) 2-3x per week and there is a substantial focus on strength development too.

4

NEW EXERCISES, NEW PROGRESSIONS AND INTENSITY TECHNIQUES!

Because this program is more focused on building muscular size, we will be using a variety of new exercises like Meadows rows, Larsen presses, omni-grip pull variations and multi-height chest movements. We’ll also be hitting more advanced intensity techniques like myo-reps and dropsets to keep driving progress forward and breaking through plateaus.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN MY POWERBUILDING PHASE 2.0

This program will push you! Week to week, it alternates between a full body split and a push/pull/legs split (upper/lower if you pick the 4x option) and uses a unique combination of RPE and %1RM based programming to ensure proper recovery. Near the end of the program, you will do AMRAP tests on select exercises to monitor your progress. In Phase 2.0, strength is tested in different weeks, rather than having a single dedicated “Max Week” like in Phase 1.

A detailed description of exactly how to prepare for the program: Max testing? Training gear? What to do with your diet? Leave nothing up to chance.

Over 80 pages explaining EVERYTHING you need to know to master your technique on the squat, bench press and deadlift. Bust through sticking points and fix the most common errors.

This program is NOT just an ebook. In addition to everything above, you also get a full excel sheet that auto-populates the exact weights you need to use for each of the main lifts, including boxes for tracking weights on every exercise.

  • over 70 video demos by Jeff, illustrating every exercise
  • volume analytics for each and every body part
  • exact warmups, sets, reps, rest periods and RPE
  • exercise substitutions for individualization
  • science explained: why the program works (+ references)

“Before and after 12 weeks! 

I’ve increased my 3 main max lifts ~115 lbs across the board. Below are the final stats. Super proud to have worked hard and seen some amazing results. I chose to focus on increasing my strength so This PROGRAM hits! 

 Bench – 240 -> 275 

 Squat – 285 -> 315 

 Deadlift – 325 -> 375 

Definitely put on some size too.”

” Ever since Jeff had mentioned him making this program, I was eagerly waiting to see what I would be like. As a young lifter (18 years old) I still wish to lift heavy as well as gain size; this program did just that. My total before this program was 1025 and my numbers after was 1225. My squat went from 365 to 455, bench went from 225 to 285, and deadlift from 475 to 565. The size of my legs had exploded and my back became very defined. Genetically, my chest is rather small RELATIVE to the rest of my body, and this program allowed me to DEVELOP a mind muscle connection that I previously had not had. To anyone wondering if this program is worth it, don’t Pass on this. Looking at other programs at the same quality, the price is well worth your money. I am so THANKFUL for the effort and PRECISION Jeff has put into this program because it taught me how to push myself and how to train EFFECTIVELY..

Powerbuilding Phase 1 and 2

I've used Jeff's programs for about 2.5 years and have gotten significant results. Primarily, I realized big hypertrophy gains in my chest and shoulders, added about 55 lbs to my bench (180-235 lb), and 30 lbs to my weighted pull-up (15-47 lb) while gaining about 20 lbs of muscle. Obviously, these programs benefit any lifter looking to implement some type of strength and hypertrophy training, but I've found them especially helpful for an x-athlete.

It seems pretty common for most x-athletes to carry over muscular asymmetries into their daily lifting habits post sport and this program does a great job at restoring balance. Specifically, I've found this program the most helpful in the following areas:

- Rep Range Mixture
- Exercise Variation
- Comment Cues

Jeff's programs do a great job of maximizing your exertion level while making sure you're not gassing yourself out every workout. This quality in addition to exercise variation makes it very easy to maintain a sustainable workout routine over a long time horizon. Additionally, the comment cues section makes it significantly easier for new hypertrophy trainers to establish mind-muscle connections.

Key Takeaway -> $50 for such an advanced program that you really just have to follow to get huge gains is an enormous steal. Too many people play around with trying to make their own program and end up changing their program every few weeks because they don't have any gains.

Literally, just buy this + follow it + eat healthy = get gains

Cheers (P.S. Jeff, you're a beast)

Did amazing on my pull ups

Did the program on a 5/6x per week and it did amazing for my pull up game! Now, after going through cancer, chemo and a transplant, I'm looking forward to seeing if the 4x/week can also do great for my pull up since I am unable to do one anymore

Very enjoyable. I’m getting stronger but not injuring myself. The variations keep it interesting.

Great!!!

For the first time running it I was able to rep the weight I was supposed to at the end so it works. And I am currently running it again and it's working so no complaints but I did change some exercises since I know what I like now.

Powerbuilding Phase 2.0

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

I designed this program so it can be run with minimal equipment. Because of the exercise substitutions included, you can easily run it with very basic equipment. I ran it the first time through in a garage gym with a power rack, barbell and some dumbbells. There are a few cable and machine exercises included as well, but in the event you don’t have access, there are always substitutions provided.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

DO I NEED TO RUN POWERBUILDING SYSTEM (PHASE 1) FIRST?

You don’t NEED to run Powerbuilding Phase 1 first, but I do recommend it. Phase 2.0 is designed to build on the adaptations and progressions developed in Phase 1, so you may find it to be too challenging if you jump into Phase 2 right away.

I FINISHED PHASE 1 SEVERAL MONTHS AGO. DO I NEED TO RUN IT AGAIN BEFORE STARTING PHASE 2?

If you found Phase 1 to be very challenging the last time you ran it, and have been inconsistent with your training since completing it, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to run back through at least the first 6 weeks of Phase 1 again before starting Phase 2. On the other hand, if you found you were recovering properly on Phase 1 and have been reasonably diligent with your training in the meantime, you have the green light to jump in with Phase 2 right away. Phase 2 starts with a relatively light intro week anyway, so you will be easing into the program regardless.

IS THIS PROGRAM SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS?

No. If you are still in your first year or two of training, I’d recommend running my Fundamentals Program first. After that, I’d suggest running at least one of my Push Pull Legs or Upper/Lower Program before moving onto my Powerbuilding routines. This program is designed for intermediate-advanced trainees who have seen a stall past the newbie phase in either strength or size. 

IS THIS PROGRAM SUITABLE FOR WOMEN?

Yes! Anyone who is looking to build BOTH muscular size and strength will benefit from this program. This program will build all the muscles of the entire body proportionally. If you’re looking for a little more focus on lower body or glutes, you can check out my Women’s Specialization Program or Glute Hypertrophy Program.

I CAN’T SQUAT, BENCH PRESS OR DEADLIFT. CAN I STILL RUN THE PROGRAM?

If you’re able to do two of the three lifts, it is possible for you to tweak the program to fit your needs. For example, if you can squat and deadlift but can’t bench press, you could replace the bench work in this program with dips, dumbbell press, smith-machine press or machine chest press and run the rest of the program as is. If you can squat and bench press but can’t deadlift, you could replace the deadlift work with hip thrusts and/or lower back extensions. If you can bench press and deadlift but can’t squat, you could replace the squat work with front squats, hack squats or leg press.

 

However, because one of the main objectives of this program is to increase strength on the Big Three lifts, if you’re unable to perform any of those lifts, this is not the best program for you at this time. I suggest you consider running one of my other programs instead.

HOW MANY DAYS A WEEK WILL I BE IN THE GYM?

There are two different versions of the program. A four times per week option and a five-six times per week option. Simply choose the version that best suits your schedule and let the gains take care of themselves.

DO I NEED ACCESS TO A GYM? CAN I RUN THE PROGRAM WITH A HOME GYM?

You only need a power rack, barbell, bench and (ideally) some dumbbells to run this program. Because there are exercise substitutions included for every exercise, you can run this program with basic lifting equipment and can tailor it to fit your situation. To run the program exactly as written (without any substitutions) however, you would need gym access as there are a few cable and machine exercises included as well.
