Hey guys when I was looking for a new program a couple of months back and I found power body building, but I never really found any forum threads of any one that’s shared their results. So I thought I would start one if any one else has done it I would be interested to see what you think of the program.
I wont go into heaps of detail about the program its pretty basic you do one compound movement of 2-4 reps depending where you are in the program and then return to the gym and do some cardio (god I hate cardio)
The first four weeks is 7 sets of 4 reps for the compound movements 5 days a week followed up by cardio 30min per session four nights per week
The program does state that you should be start at 70 percent of your 1 rep max to start off with but you go up each week lifting as much as you can as long as you hit the rep target.
I’ve been dieting for some time i started at the end of August at 150kg and i started this program at 136kg. I am now 132.2 kgs so in the four weeks I have lost 4kgs which I am happy with because I am eating 3000 cals per day, as the program tells you to increase your cals by 500 for the first 4 weeks and at the start of each block of four weeks you reduce your calories by 500.
Lifts Start Now
Squat 90kg 115kg
bench (flat) 87kg 105kg
Military Press 20kg 55kg
Deadlift 100kg 140kg
My start weights are pretty much where I left off with starting strength which I really didn’t like I found it to be a bit boring.
For the next four weeks I’ll be doing 3 reps of 7 sets with 45min cardio 5 days a week and dropping 500cals so I’ll be eating around 2500 cals per day (apart from Christmas parties)
