    I can't post links. To see the entire program, google 8 Week Powerbuilding DUP 5.0

    This program is strange. The way the core lifts are approached seems okay to me. I feel like it's a long cycle...

    I've only used Sjr for bench-press. I rested 3 minutes between sets. That was even if I didn't need that much because the frequency is pretty high. As I went into the second and third weeks, I...
