KIZEN Infinite Off-Season for Powerlifting
A repeatable, flexible program for adding strength in the powerlifting movements
The KIZEN Infinite Off-Season
This program is a auto-regulated powerlifting program for your off-season that will help you add a lot of strength and utilizes our methodology of sub-max training to constantly progress while avoiding injury.
It's 4 days a week of training and uses AMRAP sets to adjust the weight for the following week so you can continue progressing and avoid plateaus.
Who This Program Is For
If you are an intermediate lifter (have at least one year lifting experience) and are not yet advanced (deadlift over 600lb, squat over 500lb etc), this training program should be highly effective. We don't recommend this program for novice lifters, as it is very specific to powerlifting and novices should look to build overall strength.
The concept is simple; based upon your performance week to week, the program automatically adjusts what you do the following week. We do this by assessing your performance on your top set, known as your AMRAP set. AMRAP stands for As Many Reps As Possible. In this way the program manages your fatigue.
The problem with a program that gives strict percentages for 10-12 weeks is that sometimes life happens. You get stressed, have exams, personal issues etc that interfere with your training. With self regulation, no matter what your stress level, you can get the appropriate training effect with the program.
Also, if you're feeling absolutely banged up, we've included an optional deload week that can help get you back on track and training with the appropriate weights.
Kizen training is the result of three coaches coming together to combine their collective experience into a new training approach. Between Bart Kwan, Michael Farr & Omar Isuf they have over 3 decades of practical coaching & lifting experience. Their position is unique in the industry as none of them were gifted with any special physical talents. They are just three regular guys that love to lift & love to teach about lifting. Through extensive research, experience, trial/error & learning from the best in the field, they've figured out what they feel is the most effective approach to training.
The aim of Kizen training is to provide a highly effective no frills approach to lifting. Get the results we wished we could have achieved when we first started lifting. No gimmicks, false promises or untested principles. Just battle tested lifting advice from three industry veterans. Our concept of lifting revolves around the notion of continuous improvement. We are constantly striving to get better & more importantly, help YOU get better.
Whether your goal is to lose weight, get stronger, build muscle, be more athletic or a combination of any of those, we are confident we can help you reach your goal.
