The Powerbuilding Blueprint


The Powerbuilding Blueprint is the ultimate training manual for getting bigger and stronger, consistently over time.

Strength training has become a divided activity. Bodybuilding, powerlifting, cross fit, Olympic weightlifting, you name it. Where there is a category, there are respective silos with entire communities, industries and rules institutionalizing it.

Somewhere along the way, specific goals and agendas diluted the overall benefits of simple, effective weight training and the end result is an array of imbalanced lifters. Bodybuilders with superhuman physiques who can’t squat 2x their body weight, powerlifters who can squat 4x body weight but can’t tie their shoes, cross fitters with “functional” strength but the maximal strength of a retired marathon runner, and so on.

The Powerbuilding Blueprint takes a step back from this nonsense and outlines a training method, a blueprint, for using basic, multi-joint movements to build maximal strength, and various assistance and accessory (isolation) lifts to stimulate hypertrophy, together. More basically, it combines the most effective training strategies for powerlifting and bodybuilding, in each workout, to maximize muscle size and strength gains from your time spent in the gym. It also produces incredibly well-rounded strength athletes.

Henry starts off by making clear that this is not the book for anyone looking for a fad formula for unnatural results. Rather, he shares a foundation of basic principles and a sound methodology. Those of us who exercise regularly can attest to his philosophy that powerbuilding can change your attitude and life. This couldn’t be more true…
