  • Squat going backwards on Powerbuilding I

    Hi all!

    I recently moved from The Bridge (ran it twice with some success after completing my SSNLP) to Powerbuilding 1.

    When I finished The Bridge for the second time, my squat was at 180kg for a single at [email protected] I’m now in week 7 and for the second week running my squat singles at 8 have been 160kg - any heavier feels like a legit 9/10.

    All of my other lifts are trending up - can I assume
    this is down to the reduced LBBS volume/frequency on Powerbuilding I and it’ll shoot back up once I move on to, say, Strength I, or should I be concerned?

    Hey Nick,

    I wouldn't be concerned just yet, as The Bridge has a little peak/taper built into it that some people respond well to. That said, I'd assume your squat will respond similarly when you return to that style of programming.

      Thanks Jordan! Will keep at it with PB1 - enjoying front squats right now. Still setting [email protected] PRs on press, DL and bench, so it’s all good!
