Getting Bigger, Getting Stronger, Getting Smarter

Powerlifters should train like bodybuilders.

Daniel DeBrocke is a strength and conditioning coach who primarily works with powerlifters and is an educator who works hard to share his knowledge without asking for anything in return. As a competitive powerlifter, he holds a 1700 lbs raw total. DeBrocke has also written Is Lifting Heavy Weight Important For Building Muscle Size? among other great articles on Breaking Muscle.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How he took himself from 165 to 286 pounds
  • How beginners can gain muscle most efficiently
  • How advanced lifters should sequence their training for optimal progress
  • Pivot blocks, strategic variation, developing work capacity, and a whole lot more
