Periodization with Strong-15, 9-week Cycle?


How to make 9 week progress (strong 15) (85-93-100)
Upper/lower, twice a week.
Full body is hard for me.

I understand for press (every week same), but for lower body, if i make every other week:

One week:
Sq 5,4,3,2,1,1,1 and deadlift back off

Other week
DL 5,4,3,2,1,1,1 with SQ back off

This is not 9 week cycle, this is 18 week cycle?

Are you competing in powerlifting?

No. Just training.

And what are you training for? What is your goal?


Training for strength. Powerlifting. Big 3.
I liked it, yours Strong 15, and i would like to try this program.

Then squat and deadlift on the same day. That’s how it’s supposed to be setup. That’s your 9 weeks.

Sq 5,4,3,2,1,1,1 + back off
Dl 5,4,3,2,1,1,1, + back off

In same training?
