This program is an 8 week hypertrophy training program inspired by Reddit user and strength coach /u/BigCoachD. Good for off-season powerlifting training, bodybuilding, or anyone looking to increase their work capacity and get bigger.

It is a 4 day program based on linear periodization. Week 1 starts at 5×12 @50% of 1RM and adds 5% each week, gradually working up to 5×8@67.5% in week 8.

Squats flip the sets X reps schema, going for 12 sets of 5 reps instead of 5 sets of 12 reps. This was the personal preference of the author (/u/TurbulentCharge1). If you’d prefer to do high rep sets, feel free to switch squats to 5 sets of 12, 5 sets of 10, and so on…
