  • 20 weeks out from a powerlifting meet

    I've decided to start prepping now for a meet on March 21, 2020. I won't be having a coach and I train alone so I was looking for some sound advice as far as programming until then. I currently own 3 BBM templates: 7 week Hypertrophy, 12 week Press Focused Strength, and Powerlifting 2.

    My stats: 46 years old, 5'9, 208 pounds. Current approximate 1RM's, Squat: 385, Bench 235, Deadlift 365, Press 160.

    Would it be advantageous to run the Hypertrophy then go straight into Powerlifting 2 or just do the Powerlifting 2 but repeat certain weeks or blocks of weeks?

    Thanks in advance!

    Regarding the templates that you have, I would run 7 week hypertrophy and then powerlifting 2 (as BBM crew suggest) and that is exactly 20 weeks long.
    Good luck at the meet
