ProgrammingToWin, Edition Two Is Finally Here!
What You Will Get
In a sentence, four years have passed since the first edition of ProgrammingToWin was released and I've distilled everything I've learned in the past four years into the new programs in this book. The book features more than 100 pages of discussion on the why and the how of optimally programming your first three to five years in the sport of powerlifting. More than fifty pages of discussion are dedicated to the scientific principles of proper powerlifting programming. No stone is left unturned. If you were a fan of the PowerliftingToWin Program Review Series, the first half of the book delves into all of the tools that we used to analyze programs previously: planning, periodization, programming, training advancement, specificity, overload, fatigue management, individual differences, and, of course, autoregulation!
Novice Program Updates
The novice program has been COMPLETELY REVAMPED including: new exercises, new rep schemes, a new progression protocol, and a new stalling protocol. After four years of collecting data, I've made substantial improvements to program. It isn't even the same thing anymore.
Intermediate Program Updates
Just as with the novice program, the Intermediate section is completely revamped with new programs. Since the first edition of ProgrammingToWin, I've had the opportunity to work with nearly 200 competitive powerlifters. During this entire period, I've meticulously collected data by mining my athletes' training update documents. I've come to new conclusions that have caused me to completely change the Intermediate program! Just a teaser, I'll let you know in on a secret that you may already know: I no longer use Fatigue Percents... AT ALL. My intermediate programs are now designed to smoothly transition you into a type of Daily Undulating Periodization program (DUP). I can tell you from first-hand experience that DUP is primary style of periodization used by most of today's top IPF lifters. DUP is often described in such vague theoretical terms that no one seems to know how to put a DUP program together. Well, you don't have to worry about that anymore. I've gone ahead and put one together for you.
Now including Advanced Programming!
I couldn't be more excited to announce that this version of ProgrammingToWin finally incorporates some advanced programming. By now, most of you who have followed PTW over the years no longer require basic novice and intermediate programming. Most of you are looking for straight forward, easy to apply advanced programming that can take you to the next level. Well, in Version Two of ProgrammingToWin, you'll get a 13 Week DUP Peaking Program designed to help you smash PRs at your next meet. This program incorporates the EXACT principles that I've used to help numerous clients become nationally ranked powerlifters in their country including a few who have gone on to set Nationals records and podium. This isn't just a bunch of DUP theory wanking; this is programming that I've tested in the trenches over the past four years of coaching competitive powerlifters.
ProgrammingToWin 2 is AWESOME
I couldn't be more proud of ProgrammingToWin2 and I know all of you will love it as well. Please let me know what you think PTW Fam!
Have a nice day,
