What to do After a Beginner’s Strength Training Program

Someone emailed me asking what they could do after a beginner’s strength training routine no longer works for them (that is, they are not capable of increasing the weight on the bar as fast as they could before when starting out). Eventually, all beginners will progress into an “intermediate stage”. This is when the body needs more volume per period to stimulate the nervous system.

The next step in the series of books I recommend is called “Practical Programming for Strength Training” by an infamous coach. It’s available on Amazon or the book’s website.

Please note that the above is an opinion and a recommendation/review on a book I have read. This site and its content has nothing to do with Mark Rippetoe, Lon Kilgore or The Aasgard Company.

    You should be posting what you’re lifting now a days. Let everyone know how they’re going.

    Heya, I’ve been slacking off due to work and school, but I am still in top shape.

    I recently went on a ketogenic diet (basically no carbs and sugar) and lost 27 lbs of body fat (primarily). My strength was initially weak the first 2 weeks, but I resumed fairly easily after.

    If you really want my raw numbers (my all-time maxes) I’ve squatted 365 lbs, benched 265 lbs, dead-lifted 350 lbs, power cleaned 205 lbs and shoulder pressed about 185 lbs. Currently, I’m not as strong (squatting 255 lbs) due to not being consistent in my routines.
