    Prilepin's chart/table

    Hello everyone. Has anyone used the Prilepin's chart and how many weeks did you run it before going for a new max?

    Well, a couple of points, the chart is reflects number of reps to do a at a given intensity level. It isn't a training template per se.

    Next, the chart was developed based upon Olympic lifters. It is not 100% applicable to powerlifters at the higher end of the chart although it is pretty close.

    yes, i was wondering about using it as well, but i think us powerlifters have to stick towardsw the min reps if im correct?

    Same here, i've been working with Tone since the beginning of the year and have seen some great progress. I just hit 10lb PR's on all 3 lifts with just 8 weeks of training. I'm not saying you'll see the same results, what I am saying is that the chart works.

    Prilipen's Chart works well for powerlifting. You have to get yourself conditioned to handle the high volume of work, though. I work on the top end of the rep ranges and I'm making great progress. It took me about 6 weeks to get in shape before i really started feeling good.

    The trick is figuring out how many exercises to do following the chart. We use a variation of traditional Block mixed with RTS. Figure out how many exercises per week you want to Block (prilipen's Chart) and then fill in the blanks.

    Thanks everyone. I got in touch with Tone Barbaccio and he gave me some good advice. And yes, it looks like I'm going to gas out for a few weeks unless I take 10 minute breaks between sets. Sounds like a great way to spend the summer

    It's really not that bad. I usually take 2 minute rest periods between my warm-up sets and about 3 minutes between my working sets. On my last set I usually take a little longer because I usually try for some extra reps, so my resting time is about 5 minutes.
