We wanted to create something incredibly special that the World of powerlifting hasn’t seen before.

The task:

To deliver high quality programming, based on data-driven principles, and backed by the names you trust in powerlifting.

We realized one of the biggest challenges for powerlifters is getting access to high-quality programming. Currently, there are a few ways people get programming:

  • They are self-coached and attempt to write their own program. If you don’t have the skills or knowledge this becomes a risky approach, either stalling strength gains or increasing the chance of injury.
  • Some athletes use free online template, such as Sheiko, Wedler’s 5-3-1, Smolov, or others. While these can achieve good results, they’re not meant to do ‘back-to-back’ and they are often either ‘too easy’ or ‘too hard’ and don’t match the skill level of most athletes.
  • The last option is to hire an online coach. There are several high-quality coaching companies and individuals these days; however, given the price tag of such services many people don’t have access to hire a one-on-one coach.

So what did we do?

We scoured the planet to find the World’s strongest athletes.  We recruited 11 top powerlifters that were equally as excited in our vision. We showed them the power of our data tracking system, and in return, they designed exclusive training programs for the MyStrengthBook platform.

The result? 

The all-new Program Library.  Now users can access high quality, goal-specific program that leverages the industry’s best tools for tracking and analyzing training.  The best part is that our team of coaches will be designing new programs for the Program Library ongoing.  So, you can count on receiving updated programming to reach your long-term goals that evolves as you get stronger.  

Athletes now have an opportunity to gain insight into how a world class training program is designed. What’s more, you can filter programs based on several personal preferences and goals, including:

• Strength

• Hypertrophy

• Peaking for a powerlifting competition

• Off-season training

• Equipped or raw powerlifting
