  • Moving to updated Powerbuilding I after week 6

    I'm running Powerbuilding I, version 3.2 (updated 12.2.2019) for the second time (I ran it ~1 year ago),
    currently on week 5 and I have been looking at the updated version 4.0 (updated 8.8.2021).
    Could I shift to the new version after week 5, starting with week 6 on the new version?
    I'm primarily interested in the increasing strength in the powerlifts, and I'm going to run Strength I after PB I.
    Before PB I was doing more hypertrophy-focused training.

    If the change is okay, does it matter what kind of upper back movement I do on day 2 (for the second half)?
    I noticed that on the older version bilateral movement is in the first half (Pendlay row myo-reps),
    and unilateral (lever row AMRAP), whereas the newer version has bilateral and unilateral the other way around for the two halves.

    Either type of row would be fine. Let us know how it goes!
