Paul, Your Best Strength Building Plan?


#1

Hey Paul,
What would you say is the best pure strength building plan you have done in your career. I’m pretty happy with my size but sort of hit a plateau with my strength which is why I’m looking to do just a block of pure strength training. Putting on mass and conditioning would be on the backburner. I was thinking about giving Base Building a try based off what you have written about it on your blog. Love your blog, thanks for your time.

Yes, easily base building. When I developed all of those principles and put that into effect that’s when I hit my bests of a 660 no belt squat, 705x2 deadlift, 385 press behind the neck, 475 incline, and 485 close grip bench. And it was all spending most of my time working for speed/power using sub max percentages.

Great, thanks again Paul.

Where can I find this? I Google searched for it and no dice.

He has referenced it but I highly recommend buying the e-book. I bought it the other day and it is awesome. Basically more of a guideline than a cookie-cutter program where you plug your numbers in and go. It has tons of options to accommodate any lifter. Love that aspect of it.

Base Building is a great book. I loved reading it. Learned a ton.
