Hybrid Powerlifting Program - Brandon Musselman @brandonmusseltrainer1

The Hybrid Powerlifting Program is built by Brandon, from the Musseltrainer, designed to push you to near peak limits! You'll get you main lifts or a variation of the main lift twice a week, with accessory work that will train you in every plane for maximum strength grains, and to keep range of motion where it should be, last thing any lifter needs is limited ROM, you'll lose massive amounts of power and strength.

The first lift on the program is your main lift for the day, each week your percentage will increase... Make it count on week 3, this when your projected 1RM max will increase depending on how many reps you get on your AMRAP! The second lift of the day is a variation of your main lift, so work on technique, and build your speed up, speed, and technique move heavy weights. Every movement after that is your accessory work, accessories are 80% of your main lift, so the accessories may not be your favorite, but it's the things we hate we need the most of. Week 4 will be deload! Drop that weight down. Good week to dial in form even more.  If it says dynamic next to the exercise, really lighten the load and do the movement fast and explosive! This will aide in recovery by promoting more blood flow to the muscles being worked.
