Powerbuilding (also known as concurrent training) is a hybrid training style that combines Powerlifting and Bodybuilding. The purpose is build up your big compounds moves (Squat, Deadlift, and Bench Press) while at the same time building muscle mass. The result being a person who not only looks strong but is strong.
This spreadsheet is meant to be a quick way to evaluate your current strength capacity for the purposes of giving you a quick snapshot of where you stand so you can make educated and sound decisions about your training. Specifically, there are two main functions to help you along. First, the spreadsheet evaluates your main barbell powerlifting movements to that of your theoretical max. The theoretical max is based off go your biological sex, height, and maximum muscular capacity derived from anthropomorphic research taken from strength records prior to the mass introduction of steroids – mainly before 1950. Using that data set we can make sure that the the potentials are based on records that one can reach naturally and as such are a good base case in which to derive insights from for our own training. Second, we’ll take a look at efficiency of a specific movement. Efficiency is […]
