What I am about to share put me in the 300-400-500 club at a bodyweight of 233. Actually, it was 315-405-495, but you get the point. For those who don't know, those numbers correspond to pounds in the bench press, squat, and deadlift.
I am going to tell you exactly how I did it, too. For free. Yes, free. No emails to subscribe to or special top secret program from some former soviet country that I just happened to uncover; nothing special at all and it won't cost you anything more than the time it takes to read this.
It goes like this:
Perform 3-5 sets of 3-5 reps with 3-5 minute rest intervals between sets with 3-5 compound lifts 3-5 days per week for 3-5 weeks trying to add 3-5% more weight to the bar in that time period, then take a 3-5 day deload from heavy lifting. Start up again after the deload with either the same exercises or new ones depending on whether you were plateaued or not before your deload. Also, get a lifting journal and track meticulously.
That is literally it.
What's a compound lift? Good question.
