Lifters we recommend this template for:
Serious lifters with some training and meet day experience. Lifters also need to prioritize recovery demands with lower frequency training demands.
The competition exercises are primarily approached with ramp uploading protocols to an 8 RPE with repeat volume work. Competition exercises are used on a half-frequency basis, meaning they are performed every other week on an alternating basis. One week will target the competition squat while the following week will target competition bench-press and deadlift. These weeks will alternate. As the weeks' progress, the intensity will increase, and the reps will decrease. Culminating with single range rep work in the final weeks. Half frequency training has shown to be more sustainable, particularly for lifters who may have difficulties with recovery.
Accessory exercises are special exercises that have a similar ROM as the competition exercises. These exercises are used to help address the weak ROM of the competition exercises. The loading protocols for these will be used as a ramp-up approach with repeat and load drop volume work. These exercises are selected to challenge typical weak ROM for raw powerlifters. Loading will increase in intensity and decrease in volume/reps as the weeks pass by.
Supplemental exercises target weak muscle groups and have a significantly different ROM than the competition exercise. Loading protocols for these exercises are all based on a ramp-up method towards an 8 to 9 RPE. Higher rep sets (8-6 range) are used in these slots to help with hypertrophy benefits as well as the risk reduction of intensity associated with these types of exercises.
