8 Week RTS Power Build Template:
RTS's most economical solution for progressing your strength to new levels. Design by the RTS coaching staff this 8-week power-build-focused template adapts with you as you gain strength and size. The template is designed to add size and strength while attacking weaknesses with the use of special exercise variations to complement this effort. Training 3 or 4 days per week with medium specificity, medium intensity, low RPE, and high volume work also comes with a large amount of variation. The 3x/week template has about a 10% reduction in total work. Did you say adapt with me as I progress?

Lifters we recommend this template for:
Serious lifters who want to train the power-lifts while still having an emphasis on hypertrophy and increasing size.
The RTS powerbuild template takes on a unique approach. All the main 3 powerlifts are present in each week of the training. Accessory exercises are uniquely selected to target the powerlifts weak ROM. That means those exercises will closely mimic the competition exercise, with a slight variation. Keeping these exercises more specific to the competition exercises allows for the ‘power’ aspect to remain part of the intended response of this template.
The loading protocols for both the competition exercise and the accessory exercise are similar. In the first wave of loading, there are some benchmarking sets at an 8 RPE. They range in reps from 1-4 to establish the per session strength ability. The benchmark set is then followed by a % based volume work. These sets are low RPE with only 30 seconds of rest between each set. This strikes a balance of pure strength training and hypertrophy training.
The supplemental exercises are selected to target weak muscle groups. These exercises will have a drastically different ROM than the competition and accessory exercises. The loading protocols for these exercises are primarily based on low % intensity work with high rep sets to deliver further hypertrophy stimulus.
