Periodization with Strong-15, 9-week Cycle?

#1

Paul,

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?

#2

Are you competing in powerlifting?

#3

No. Just training.

#4

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

#5

Sorry,

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.

#7

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

In same training?

Thanks
