Plan Strong™ Plan Requirements

How strong do I need to be to qualify for a Plan Strong™ plan?

  • There is no lower limit for barbell or kettlebell lifts.
  • In kettlebell lifts, if your 1RM is less than or equal to 24kg, you will need to have available kettlebells with jumps of 2kg between sizes (e.g. 10kg, 12kg, 14kg, 16kg, 18kg, 20kg, 22kg).
  • In pull-ups, dips, and pistols, consider your 1RM as the sum of your body weight plus the overload. To be eligible for a plan, 70% of your 1RM must be equal to or greater than your body weight.
  • In all lifts competent technique is a must.
