Jeff Nippard’s 10 Week Powerbuilding System is designed for intermediate to advanced level lifters looking to take BOTH their muscle and strength gains to the next level.
Most bodybuilding programs focus too much on chasing a pump. The typical end result behind such an approach is a physique that may look muscular, but isn’t actually able to put that muscle to use! This Powerbuilding System blends the very best of bodybuilding and powerlifting training styles to create one of the most effective and motivating ways to train.
Low rep sets seem to signal for muscle growth mainly through mechanical tension, whereas high reps sets likely signal for growth primarily through metabolic stress. Because of this, if you only use one rep range in your training, you are seriously limiting your hypertrophic potential. Because this program blends rep ranges in the 1-5 zone, 6-12 zone and 12-20 zone, you will maximize muscle growth through each and every growth pathway.
<p>Once beyond the newbie phase, a big problem that most people run into is lack of objective progress. Once linear gains are no longer possible, most lifters start spinning their wheels and relying on highly subjective factors like pump, soreness, etcetera. Let me be clear: NONE of these factors will drive progress like increases in strength. Because this program is so focused on increasing strength on heavy compound lifts, it provides a much more reliable way to ensure progress beyond the newbie gains stage.</p>
Because this program includes more low rep, heavy strength work than a typical bodybuilding program, you will simply get much stronger in general. Once you apply that new found strength to the typical “bodybuilding movements” in moderate to high rep ranges, the potential for overload will be so much greater and plateaus can be completely busted.
Powerbuilding isn’t only valuable for bodybuilders, though. It also has merit for powerlifters. Remember, all else equal, a bigger muscle IS a stronger muscle. So, if your strength progress has slowed down, a powerbuilding approach will provide the muscle growth you need to make sure your numbers keep moving up.
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.
You’ve never seen a program like this! Week to week, it alternates between a full body split and an upper/lower split, uses high effort top sets to drive maximum strength, and a unique combination of RPE and %1RM based programming to ensure proper recovery. At the end of the program, you will test maxes to see all the gains you’ve made.
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 lift, including boxes for tracking weights on every exercise.
” 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.. “
” I’ve been lifting consistently for about 6 years now and this is by far my favorite program I’ve run. For me, this was a great way to break a plateau. It feels great going into the gym knowing as long as I follow the program, I will see results. My squat went from 305 to 365 lbs, bench went from 225 to 255lbs, and the biggest one was my deadlift from 275 to 385!!! Jeff knows what he is doing, I will definitely be running this program back again. “
“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.”
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.
