day one tomorrow powerlifting
Hey guys my names mike, for the year and a half i have been working out i been bodybuilding training. Now I'm going to start power lifting to do competitions, I'm going to incorporate power lifting with my bodybuilding and also have a set day JUST for power lifting. I'm on here mainly because I'm wondering if theirs any tips, cool things, or anything that anyone can tell me

Only 1 set day e/w for PLing dosen't give us a whole lot to work with. Especially if your planing on doing meets.

5 days a week might be a bit much. Have researched using some powerlifting programs? If you're using Westside you could switch out DE for RE and gain quite a bit of mass. Other programs like Wendler's 5/3/1 and MadCows 5x5 are all very solid.

well i still want to get my powerlifting in and i would still only be doing every body part once a week and powerlifting twice a week so wouldn't that work

Have you decided what you want to do for each day? lifts, sets, reps, weights, etc...
The powerlifts work a lot of muscle so you would want to take into account that you're working every multiple times a week.

No just every body part once a week than on saturdays hit just powerlifting, like for instance for chest ill do bench, incline, and flys, but for bench ill go 3-5 reps at 5 sets like im power lifting than same for back days with deads and leg days with squats, also on saturdays im just gonna do pure powerlifting. Sorry im not making myself clear im trying my best

monday- barbell bench 5 sets of 3-5, incline bench 3 sets of 6-8 flys 3 sets of 8-10 with abs. tuesday- deadlift 4-5 sets of 3-5, barbell row 3 sets of 6-8, lat pulldown 3 sets of 6-8, weighted hyperextension (because i need to strengthen my lower back because i have problems with it) 3 sets of 10, clean jerks 4 sets of 6, lat raise 3 sets of 8-10, rear deal 3 sets of 8-10, shrugs 3 sets of 15. thursday squat 5 sets 3-5, hack squat 3 sets of 6, good mornings 3 sets of 6, leg press 3 sets of 6-8, friday arms which you guys probably don't care about than saturdays all powerlifting 8-10 sets of 3-5 with bench, squats, and deads
Keep in mind im trying to keep a good physique so i figured this seemed pretty good

So on Saturday you want to do 8 to 10 sets of 3 to 5 reps for each of the powerlifts, in addition to doing them once during the week?
I'm not sure what you plan on getting out of the Saturday session that you can't get out of your weekday sessions. You can make excellent progress training the lifts once a week.

Well the only reason i was powerlifting on saturdays is because wherever i read it says powerlifters train everything twice a week for strength, but if once a week will work than i'll do once a week

Wow calm down, how about you stop trying to tell me what i meant and listen to what i meant instead of saying im arguing because your wrong. I came on here for a little help not attitude sorry.

And that workout isn't incorporating body building at all and that's what i said i needed that's why i wanted to know how my workout was

maybe it would help if you told us why you think one is bodybuilding and the other is powerlifting?
The lifts are the same and the rep schemes aren't too far off of what you would see a PLer doing.
If you wanted to add some heavy singles, doubles or triples into the workouts you are already doing that may help. Adding a day of "powerlifting" isn't really the best way to get stronger for most people.
You've been given examples of some excellent programs and they can all be used to gain mass (I assume that's what you mean by bodybuilding). Is there a reason why you don't want to use one of those programs?
11-24-2010, 10:30 AM
those programs are more for strength training, and bodybuilding and powerlifting are a lot different. Bodybuilding is for physique higher reps than a power lifter and they go for looks, power lifting is more pure strength 3-5 reps, if i should do the extra day thats fine i wont i was just wondering if it would help me
11-24-2010, 10:38 AM
Sorry guys i guess im not making myself clear :/ Don't worry about it ill figure it out thanks anyways

It's a really tuff task trying to bodybuild & Power Lift at the same time, that's all. Especially if your looking to be competitive at one or the other. I would really look into Wendler's 5/3/1 if your looking to do a hybid style of training. The Westside Barbell is completely not in the cards though.
