In my previous article, I outlined a couple of mistakes I see throwers making with their training. You can check that article out by clickinghere. I really appreciate the feedback I got from the Kabuki Strength community, and one of the most common questions was how those considerations actually entered into program design. I thought the most productive way to answer that question was to just open up my old training log and show a sample training week from my final season as a pro. This is my actual in season workout schedule assuming a meet on Saturday.
In preparing for a powerlifting meet, I have seen lots of overthinking, overworking, and over-stressing when it comes to people figuring out how to setup their training cycle to perform the best on competition day. Even athletes that aren’t powerlifters, or aren’t competitors on stage can benefit from this system, designed to maximize each training day. This system is not only simple to understand, it’s also easy to implement, and works like a charm every time. I call it the 3, 2, 1, 0 Meet Countdown.
