Powerlifting for Competition by Terry Grimwood
Three-Day Alternating Week (16 week) Program


Because lifters wear so many different kinds of suits and supportive equipment, it is difficult to determine just what percentage each lifter will gain from his equipment. Therefore, we will not consider the use of any equipment throughout this particular program unless otherwise stated.

On your squat, bench, and deadlift perform all of your warmup and progressive sets with minimum reps. However, make sure you are warmed up enough to progress from set to set to avoid injury. Do not waste your energy on those climbing sets! Finally, approach each workout with equal concentration.


NOTE: An explanation of "progressive x" -
e.g. 3 sets moderate-heavy progressive x 8 reps
- Begin with a moderate weight and progress to a heavier intermediate weight for the next work set before finally finishing with your heaviest work set which should be performed with equal concentration and technique for all 8 reps. Adapt this explanation to "6 sets light-moderate weight progressive x 10-15 reps" and all the other "progressive x" sections of the workouts. This allows the intensity of assistance work to be varied through the cycle.

Awesome to see this here! 16 years ago when I was 18 this is the template I trained with for 9 months. I put on 20 lbs. (140 to 160) and also did a push/pull meet with my pops. Pulled 400+ and pushed 175 or 185. Don't remember exactly. Seeing Grimwood's writings brings back great memories.
