  • Template Questions

    Hi folks,

    I've been recommended the Beginner Template for obvious reasons, but I'm curious as to template structure. Obviously getting accustomed and used to major lifts is quite important, but I don't want to let alternative exercises fall by the wayside and exclusively focus on powerlifts, unless that's the most obvious thing to do while trying to get main lifts up.

    Is the beginner template very similar to the "Beginner prescription"? Which templates allow for GPP in and around big mains?

    1. As far as I know the beginner prescription is the first of the three phases of the beginner template.

    2. I’m pretty sure just about all of their templates come with gpp recommendations.

      Good to know, thanks.
      In terms of the GPP stuff, do you mean accessory work/additional lifts or cardio prescriptions?

        More like recommendations for cardio, upper back, abs, etc. you can definitely mix and match and even add what you want to it however I would always start with the base template then tweak it as you go along relatively gradually.

        What were you thinking of adding?

          Hi RVR

          The beginner prescription is the first phase of the beginner template. I think the first phase does not have too much variation while you get into the swing of things, but if you go for the full template phases 2 and 3 have more exercise variations and the template includes an exercise selector so you can pick and choose between similar exercises for the slot if there are things in there you cant do or want to swap something out.

            Phase 1 is pretty basic and similar to Starting strength in it is mostly the big 3. As the weeks advance it adds more accessories and variations and looks a lot more powerbuilding. There are 3 phases and you don't necessarily have to start with phase 1. By phase 3 it is starting to look real similar to the power building templates. It is a little different.

            All phases have some GPP in them that builds up over time. Phase 2 starts introducing variations and accessories. Phase 3 starts to look a bit like power building.
