"What is Powerlifting?" There is a growing misconception among athletes, athletic coaches, and the general public of the true definition of Powerlifting. The sport of Powerlifting consists of three (3) lifts : The Squat, the Bench Press, and the Deadlift along with a required TOTAL. "What are the real Powerlifting Records?" A new Powerlifting organization will often advertise a newly established set of lifting records without credence to existing marks. For the purpose of education and history of the sport, the original Powerlifting Records from the state of West Virginia including several National, American, and World Powerlifting Records are highlighted. "What is strong?" Strength training methods specific to "getting strong" may or may not originate from those who have performed at the highest level in competitive Powerlifting or Weightlifting. A total of five (5) Training Logs directly from the Workout Journals of the author are mapped. The workouts include the sets and repetitions, poundages, and maximum lifts from the official Powerlifting competitions. The achievements, Powerlifting, and Weightlifting Records of several lifters are identified and ranked within the book for the purpose of "Setting the Records Straight."
Powerlifting: Training Techniques and Performance is a guide for athletes and coaches in powerlifting as well as more general reading for the lover of sport.

This book covers it all for beginning and advanced powerlifters, bodybuilders, casual weightlifters, and those interested in the correct form of the big three lifts. It contains most of what Frantz learned in over 50 years of powerlifting. The book stresses the basics because so many lifters forget them in clutch situations. People are not machines. The only way in which a human can master a set of instructions is to do them and do them and do them. This book covers everything from the proper method of performing the big three (squat, bench press, and deadlift), the Frantz routine, supplements, diet, rest and relaxation, spotting, selecting training partners, injuries and rehabilitation, women in powerlifting, and common physical and psychological complaints. It also covers powerlifting myths, common official competition rules, and includes interviews with some of the sport's greats. If you have spent decades in the sport or are just considering a start for improving yourself in your sport or general health, this book is for you.
5thSet is a training system for the sport of powerlifting. That includes a periodization model, a system for routine composition, procedural guidelines to transition from and to different phases within a mesocycle or between mesocycles, and very precise instructions concerning execution.All that said, I believe the 5thSet, being a better powerlifting training system than those previously available in neat, written form, can be a more widely useful tool than it appears to be.So why is the 5thSet a better powerlifting training system?The chief reason is that it solves the paradox of biological individuality versus a formal method (in the form of a recipe). Before the 5thSet, you had to settle for the latter. You had to settle for a recipe and, like all of the good ones, it will be very good for about 10-15% of users and fall, like a well behaved bell curve, into uselessness to everybody else.With the 5thSet you have a self regulating mechanism within the system that is pretty much the "individuality-meter." It is the 5thSet itself: after four sets with a given weight, calculated according to a percentage of the individual's estimated 1RM and progressing linearly, there is a 5thSet of "as many reps as possible" (AMRAP). The AMRAP set, or 5thSet, will determine decision-making in a manner that the resulting routine is both formally in accordance to the method (recipe) and strictly adjusted to the individual.The progress from micro-cycle to micro-cycle and the shift to a new meso-cycle in the 5thSet system makes the tiring question as to periodization linearity or non-linearity quite obviously futile.There are many other aspects of the 5thSet that deserve praise. The early emphasis on the unequal nature of strength gain and technical proficiency in powerlifting and the adjustment of the method to this (and not vice-versa) is important. The practitioner may choose any one or two lifts for the 5thSet protocol (the others being speed/technique lifts for that mesocycle), but never the deadlift and the squat together. Without worrying about any complicated technical speculation (which is all they would be) as to why this choice would lead to disaster, the reader is told it does.The choice and use of assistance exercises in a given routine is another item where Swede makes a huge contribution. We are plagued, today, with the "magic bullet" assistance work for the squat, the bench press or the deadlift. Each week the powerlifting community is bombarded with blog posts about "that" incomparable exercise that will add 50lbs to your bench press. This is confusing for the majority of the lifters. In the 5thSet, the choice of the assistance work is well explained in connection to an inventory of weaknesses. Randomness is taken out of the way.If the reader cares to pay attention to the text (and not skip to the templates), he will be introduced to the concepts of exercise, training, training programs, among others. He will understand that the execution of an exercise out of the context of a plan is usually poorly correlated to improvement towards any type of goal. So, whether the exercise is done in the same sequence, form, intensity and volume or whether it is done randomly, the practitioner doesn't have great chances of achieving anything.Although the book is written in a concise and objective manner with the explanation of the training system on focus, it doesn't fail to address all important items concerning a powerlifter's career, such as: expectations as to progress rate, choice of attempts in a meet, the role of recovery and how to use it to make important decisions in the program, among many others.
