Build is for anyone who wants to improve overall strength and ability to lift heavier but not maximally. The structure is 2 blocks of 3 weeks of strength building.
The idea is to build the main compound lifts Squat, Bench and Deadlift, with some accessory work. The main lifts focus weekly on a volume test followed by a weekly descending rep scheme with linear increases in load to develop maximal strength at a relative intensity.
This program requires a lot of energy and commitment as you need to find a relative load for the day at a higher volume, then push through at a decreased rep range. The idea is to develop barbell conditioning whilst getting to grips with a lower rep range.
Starts with higher volume, decreasing reps, increasing load
