Eric Lilliebridge's 1045 Raw Squat


Powerliftingwatch.com posted yesterday, like how explosive he moves heavy weighs. Does anyone know how he trains, besides the obvious 1 rep on his squat and deadlifts, assistance etc.


Love watching the Lillybridge family lift!


It's possible because he listens to fear factory while training :slight_smile:


He wrote a book.. its 30 pages long with 14 pages about what music he likes to listen to lmao


He clearly trains a lot of singles, which i had great success with . I curious about his off season and his assistant work.


He has some old logs around somewhere

In meet prep he basically has a heavy day one week and amrap day the following week training bench on its own day and squat+ deadlift on its own day.

Bench one day + heaps of bodybuilding assistance

Squat + deadlift day minimal assistance

Assistance day hit whatever you feel could use more work

Off season he says he literally just tries to maintain a decent base line of strength on his main lifts, while using assistance lifts to add muscle.

Brutally simple...... But apparently brutally effective!


Thats what I kind of figured i did Jeff Maddy bench press program 5 sets of 1 starting out at 85% max go up weekly, only assistance was low rep cheat curls. I wouldn't do this year round, but made great results, natural but younger. I bet Eric does i lot of cable crossovers and con curls for bench assistance , and wont eat too much red meat, cuz it makes his butt look to big, lmao. Later Ryan
