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 pullups, dips, and pistols you must be strong enough to do your chosen exercise with more than 1/3 of your bodyweight added. E.g., if you weigh 80kg (176lb) and you would like a custom pullup plan. You should be able to do at least a single strict rep with at least 28kg (62lb) to qualify.
  • In all lifts competent technique is a must.
