The Muscle & Strength Pyramid - Training by Eric HelmsThere is a lot of nonsense out there surrounding training for both bodybuilders and strength athletes. Half-baked ideas based on cherry-picked scientific data that fail to take into account the big picture. We’ve cut through all that with this book.
Crystal-clear clarity on the order of things that count
We’ve broken down the factors that go into making strength and hypertrophy-focused training programs into a clear order of importance.
A full, detailed and unbiased look into the research...
…to draw conclusions about the best methods for bodybuilders, strength athletes, and clear explanations of the overlapping elements. Learn why certain misconceptions pervade the training world, and never be fooled by another cleverly-written magazine article again.
Highly detailed example training programs
Building on all the theory and recommendations in the book, in the last section we have six programs for novice, intermediate and advanced-level bodybuilders and strength-focussed athletes. You can simply pick one and run it as they have been written, but the idea is that you tailor them using the principles you’ve learned in the rest of the book. Full progression examples included also.

The explanation section in the book is fairly detailed, so I have cut it down to give just the overview, relevant notation and exercise selection explanations. This, the Intermediate Powerlifting Program , and the Detailed Guide to Training Progression articles bring the site up to speed with the level of training programming that I typically find myself using with coaching clients nowadays. I hope you find them useful. The Intermediate Bodybuilding Program builds on the novice program by increasing volume globally. Additionally, the progression is changed to be more suitable to an intermediate level lifter and follows a linear-periodized, wave-loading pattern in the same manner as the Intermediate Powerlifting Program.

Sample sections from our nutrition and training theory books for powerlifters and physique athletes, The Muscle and Strength Pyramids.

The answer, for the most part, involves an extreme level of water manipulation. Professional fighters with a hour….
