Easy Strength

Recommended Posts

I am competing in my first Power lifting meet in November. I have cycled through Starting Strength. Completed Pavel's Father's Program. Based on the activity load I carry as a highland games athlete and some issues with cluster headaches, I have decided to follow Dan John's Easy Strength Program. 


Following Pavel's simple programming and the fact that he and Dan John wrote this together feels like this works for me. I have learned traditional Russian programming from Pavel himself, and feel that Easy Strength is the proper programming for me, as I am not doing this with a single focus and will need to make sure I can recover correctly. I'm not worried about peaking as in their book of the same name, only 20% of Olympic Athletes achieve a season best at the Olympics. 


The modifications I have made to the 5 lifts, for the meet's purposes are as followed:




KB Snatch

Ab Wheel


KB Snatch was picked over swings as I will also have to renew my StrongFirst Certification in October.
