Compounding Strength and Power:
The Ultimate Strength Training Workout
Try this simple but intelligently designed program by ALLMAX Coach Eric Broser. A full range of multi-joint movements to gain crazy strength and size!
The type of training that focuses on building pure strength is somewhat different than “hypertrophy-based” workouts. However, there is some crossover between the two, and with a good combination of exercises, sets, reps, rest periods and rep tempo we can “have our cake (or should that be chicken breast) and eat it too!”
The most efficient way to build power and strength is through the use of basic strength training, compound (or multi-joint) movements, which work not only a primary body part, but also assisting and stabilizing muscles as well. This is why I often refer to “compounds” as “the best bang for your buck” exercises.

When creating a productive strength-building program I find it best to train no more than three times per week on non-consecutive days. Reps will be in a range of about 3-6, with a controlled negative contraction (around 3 seconds) followed with an “explosive” positive.
Since you will be handling some heavy poundage during a program like this, it is very important that you always use strict technique/form so as not to incur any injuries. Workouts should be preceded by a short 10-15 minute “easy” cardio session to raise core temperature, and several warm up sets for each movement before getting into the heavy stuff.
