  5. PlanStrong/BuiltStrong Built Strong for one lift?

    After attending Plan Strong this past weekend, a question occurs to me. In PS, we routinely discussed planning individual lifts more, or less, on their own. When I attended Built Strong last year, we mostly talked about programming for several lifts. The question is: Do you know of a reason...

    I'm wrapping up week 1 of 501G today and am wondering if anyone here has attempted or completed this program. If so, what was your experience? What did the rest of your programming look like? Did you achieve the 44kg press? Thanks!

    Kettlebell In case you missed my press article from last week.

    Hey all, Last week StrongFirst published my most recent article that details my experience on a press program I built around using only one medium sized kettlebell. I did the program due to work, time, and gear constraints. I hope you enjoy it! Get Stronger with One Kettlebell | StrongFirst

    Kettlebell Delta 20 and intensity

    Hello strong people, I have a question regarding the Delta-20 principle. I have applied it to my S&S training with very good results, in order to manage fatigue. (I cannot predict how I will sleep or how stressful my life will be on any given day, so waving the volume helps a lot with...

    Today I was lucky enough to stumble upon a reference to a Pavel article I had not heard of before, "Ladders Reloaded," in MILO Vol 23 No. 1.

  15. PlanStrong/BuiltStrong Understanding Percentages

    Just to make sure, how do we deal with intensity correctly, when dividing 81-90% lifts between sessions in a week? There is this quote on the top of pg. 63 “The intensity optimum is far from stable. Based on studying this factor on members of the USSR national team, we can presume that...
