10/20/Life Second Edition If you like Starting Strength or 5/3/1, you''re going to LOVE 10/20/Life! What is 10/20/Life? 10-and-20 weeks at a time, for a lifetime of positive momentum in training and in LIFE. This philosophy is a life-long approach for any level of lifter or athlete. Many recreational lifters utilize the protocols in this book to have a better plan in the gym, with no plans to ever compete. On the other hand, many competitive lifters from Beginner to Pro use this approach with great success! From The Author, Brian Carroll: "With 10/20/Life, my objective is to teach you to get the results you want by coaching yourself-the same way a superior coach would take you through an individualized program in a great gym. We start out with a thorough examination of your weak points because that''s how quality coaching works. The idea is to show you what to program, and when, based on your weaknesses in the squat, bench press, and deadlift. This sounds simple, but it''s something most people don''t even consider, much less put into practice. From there, the 10/20/Life system takes you through the best injury-preventative warm-up in the industry, followed by a comprehensive layout of coaching cues for each individual lift. From start to finish, you''ll learn what to look for and what to do, and you''ll learn the reasoning behind all of it. By the time you''re finished working your way through these materials, you''ll be able to coach yourself, and others, like a pro." Learn to be your own coach, attack your weaknesses and utilize a proven philosophy that is a guide to permanent success. This book includes a comprehensive WEAK POINT CHART and WARM-UP INDEX that teach you how to assess your own training and PRESCRIBE THE EXERCISES YOU NEED. 20 YEARS OF RESEARCH AND TRIALS distilled into a program you can actually use! The plan is an easy five-step process: 1. Choose your schedule. (3 different) 2. Determine your weak points in the main lifts. (use the coaching guide to correct form) 3. Use the Weak Point and Assistance Exercise indexes to custom design your own program. (pick your assistance work as specified in the Weak Point index) 4. Follow the warm-up protocol listed. (4 parts, super easy and custom) 5. Determine your level of readiness, then train according to the system''s RPE plan for that day or if you''re in precontest, you go off of percentages. (this all depends on where you are in your phase of training) Just a few of the sizable additions to this "second edition" physical copy: * New chapter "Deload" * New chapter "Establishing a baseline" * New chapter "Speed work" Other updated features include: * A reintroduction of the 10/20/Life philosophy and update with AMAZING testimonials - male and female, raw and equipped. * The 5 main principles of 10/20/Life * How do you gain a mental edge? Tips to do so * What 10/20/Life is NOT - putting to rest speculation * RPE - a different approach * Nutrition - a closer look with detail * Coaching cues updated and expanded * Weak point index updated and expanded * Combo day updated and modified * Step-by-step set-up and the pro''s and con''s of a "wide base bench" vs the "traditional tucked" approach * New offseason training split "Jumbo Day" for those with little to no time to train or those who can''t recover between sessions with a typical split or even the "combo day" * All new pictures and charts throughout the entire book * Percentages for pre-contest modified and addressed with suggestions * Many new exercise and section "breakouts" for explanations of movement, an important note, or simply a summary of the section * FAQ section with 15 of the most commonly asked questions.

The Method Behind the Cube -Explanation of the program and the secret to the unique rotation of training modes. -Get set up on your own Cube rotation to maximize strength, and preparedness. Gym Training -Learn how to rethink what strength is. It’s not just 1 Rep PR’s that matter. We find ways to set PR’s for weight, reps, time, and speed. -How to rotate the training waves of each of the main lifts -Proper weight, rep and set schemes needed in order to make you the very best powerlifting you can be.

The carefully-selected exercises that deliver MAXIMUM results for your efforts, helping you build a big, full chest, a wide, tapered back, and bulging biceps.

Strength training has become a divided activity. Bodybuilding, powerlifting, cross fit, Olympic weightlifting, you name it. Where there is a category, there are respective silos with entire communities, industries and rules institutionalizing it. Somewhere along the way, specific goals and agendas diluted the overall benefits of simple, effective weight training and the end result is an array of imbalanced lifters. Bodybuilders with superhuman physiques who can't squat 2x their body weight, powerlifters who can squat 4x body weight but can't tie their shoes, cross fitters with "functional" strength but the maximal strength of a retired marathon runner, and so on. The Powerbuilding Blueprint takes a step back from this nonsense and outlines a training method, a blueprint, for using basic, multi-joint movements to build maximal strength, and various assistance and accessory (isolation) lifts to stimulate hypertrophy, together. More basically, it combines the most effective training strategies for powerlifting and bodybuilding, in each workout, to maximize muscle size and strength gains from your time spent in the gym. It also produces incredibly well-rounded strength athletes.
