Good site, monster lifts
In a discussion with a guy who posts on frankshamrock's site I found this site:
These guys are currently the monsters of power lifting. The center of their program relies on what has been called "non-linear periodization". Peridoization is the cycling through different phases of lifting with different goals (not really but good enough). The non-linear approach maintains a continual integration of strength and explosiveness.
This article talks about one sub-fighter's take on it and the program itself.
This also is a valuable article:
I also have a quality linear periodization routine more specifically for mma. PM me if anyone wants it.
Additonal resources can be found in (currently) the final post on this thread:
The elitefitness guys are the ones mainly responsible for chain and band integration into lifting, great but be careful.
Always remeber one thing:
Body builders are totally mechanized attack squad (you too piz)
Here is a modification of the Westside program that may be more useful for those going the non-power lifting route:
Damn interesting.. i am a beleiver in the MAX principle of weight lifting.. the only thing the body responds to i think is stress.. and the more the intesity the better.. (with the more rest needed after)
i like the guys schedule alot too..

Good article Dochter. Thanks
Not ALL powerlifters are fat. Usually the ones in the super heavy are usually pretty big but thats because the added weight helps push more weight.
Powerlifting is a sport with weight classes (like MMA, boxing, etc) You wont find a "fat" powerlifter in the 110-242 weight class (as a rule)
Why are all superheeavyweights like Cabbage and Eric Pele fat? Because they weigh 300 lbs+ and it's very hard to carry 300 lbs of ripped muscle.
Magnus ver Magnusson, now there is a fat fucker.
Also Mariusz Pudzianowski is a fat lazy bastard! I mean look at this flabby ****:
The second link in my first post...
They told the guy to eat a couple of candybars a day.
Couple of months later "well I think I went a little overboard with the candybars."
