  • Purpose of The Bridge and Sample Training Template paths

    Hi, I think it would be really helpful to be able to see examples of training paths starting with Beginner Template.

    For example, to gain strength with some hypertrophy:
    One route is: Beginner - Powerbuilding I - Powerbuilding II
    Or an alternate route: Beginner - Hypertrophy I - Strength I - Powerlifting II (or Srengthlifting II?) then Strength III.

    What is the difference between them other than the first path being shorter? Is it that the Powerbuilding isstrength and hypertrophy combined while you could separate/alternate with hypertrophy I / strength I / Powerlifting II / hypertrophy II / Strength III

    The purpose of The Bridge is widely understood but not well described. It doesn't have any prerequisites. In what scenario would I use this? It's a bridge between what and what?

    Additionally with goals to gain bodyweight (increase muscle) or lose bodyweight (burn fat) some templates might be chosen over others, or something could be thrown into a default path.

    My plan is Beginner - Powerbuilding I for now but that took forever to figure out. Can any of the templates be run after any? Like could I do Beginner - Powerbuilding I - Powerbuilding II - then go back to Hypertrophy and Strength I - Powerlifting II (or Srengthlifting II?) then Strength III?

    Sorry for the long post. Thanks for everything.

    Phyz,

    There are many paths you can choose based on goals, desired training style, resources, etc.

    The difference between the first and second example is about 6 months of training and a much higher emphasis placed on strength performance in a few specific lifts.

    I also disagree that the purpose of The Bridge is not well described. It is designed to "bridge' people from LP or other similar program into an autoregulated training plan. This is explicitly described in the text accompanying the program.

    Your plan does look fine to me, though I wouldn't plan it that far out this far in advance. Things change over time and we should try to be adaptable to those changes.

      Thank you so much for the information and guidance. I appreciate your explanation of The Bridge. I see it is well described but I didn't understand all of it.
