Powerlifting were really all doing it or should be

Powerlifting is a strength sport that consists of three attempts at maximal weight on three lifts: squat, bench press, and deadlift. As in the sport of Olympic weightlifting, it involves lifting weights in three attempts.

That was a copy and paste quote of what powerlifting is see where it says 3 exercises squat,bench press,deadlift. Now if you’re serious in the gym and trying to bulk and put on mass these are the 3 staple exercises you should be doing. Should you be doing them like a powerlifter I say no but still lifting these 3 exercises will put that mass you want on your body of course with the right diet.
So you don’t have to lift a massive amount of weight to get the benefits from the sport of powerlifting. You should be adding there 3 main exercises into your routine though if you want to grow just lift at your pace don’t try to lift like the hulk and eat a proper diet.


Agree 100%. Also, go heavy dedicating certain days (M-W-F example) for squat, bench, DL, respectively works wonders. Doing 4 good sets for each exercise on same day is nice, too.


Go big training and eating will give you gains without compounds. With compounds adds the healing, water retention, and nitrogen retention which helps you get there faster.


I add the strict press to these 3 for maximal gains & strength.


I can agree with that

I would also add a strict row or barbell row. I prefer strict row or pendlay row. Easier on my lower back and I can move more weight. I build all my mass programs around those 5 excercises.


Nice no doubt

Its a solid simple and proven way to reach most goals with a solid base training program like your 5 goto choices. I like the keep it simple way myself.

I’m 34 going on 35 Oct timeframe and I’ve been doing powerlifting since I was 15.

I’ve always been in love with the movements and what they bring.

The explosiveness you can build from dead-lift and cling and Jerk movements.

I also agree that these movements are needed to add mass, strength and gym confidence.

I will go in any gym knowing that I’m capable of completing an olympic movement due to having good form and experience.
