Powerlifting for Beginners relies on a classic 5x5-style progression of the big lifts, plus just the right amount of higher-rep accessory work. It's only a four-week plan, but it's meant to be repeated for up to several months. Beginners who are ready to master the barbell lifts can thrive on this plan, but intermediate or advanced lifters can see great gains with it, as well.
Think you need bands, chains, and fancy rep schemes to get strong? Think again. All you need is a rack, a bench, a barbell, and the willingness to set your ego aside and do some solid work. It may sound easy, but these workouts will test you and push you to grow.
The 5x5 approach only works if you know what you lift every single session. That means tracking the weights you lift and the rest periods between sets. You can do both in the Bodybuilding.com BodyFit Elite App! Plus, you can watch instructional videos of every movement. This program is too important to leave anything up to chance!
