Jailhouse Strong's Josh Bryant brings you a 12-week Tactical Powerlifting program designed to build ABSOLUTE STRENGTH so you peak for a powerlifting meeting while increasing your work capacity so that you're ready at a moment's notice.

Your training will deliver 12 weeks of progressive overload while incorporating 3 deload/reload weeks to make sure you're not over-training along the way.

You'll build strength and power in the Squat, bench and deadlift and we'll add in meaningful accessory movements that'll make a difference in your training and performance.

If you're willing to put in the 60 minutes of work 4 days per week, you'll make incredible strength gains over the next 12 weeks without sacrificing your conditioning.

In typical Josh Bryant fashion, this is no frills training with nothing fancy outside of good old fashioned hard work, sweat, persistence, and sacrifice.

If you're willing to put in the work, you'll be pleasantly surprised with what you become throughout the process of adding this to your training regimen.

Real Bang for Your Buck
There's not a wasted movement or rep in this 12-week program. We'll get you in the weight room, get to work, and get you back to your life. You'll make incredible gains and some of the most efficient you've ever made in your training.

Meaningful Movements
We'll focus almost exclusively on ground-based functional movements like the Back Squat and Bench Press, adding in pulls, carries, sled drags, and rucks. Not a single movement, set, or even rep was wasted when we put this training plan together.

Ready at a Moment's Notice
We understand how training can impact performance and how performance (for some) can mean life or death in certain situations. This training plan was put together to ensure that you're ready at a moment's notice, for whatever comes your way in work and in life.

FAQs
Who is this program for?
This program is for intermediate and advance lifters. An intermediate lifter is someone who has six months to a year of consistent, intelligent training. An advanced lifter is someone who has two years or more of consistent, intelligent training.
Can you explain the Squat/Bench Press/Deadlift Execution?
If you want to move big weights, you need to move the barbell as fast as possible with these exercises. I call this “movement intention”. The idea is to move lighter weights fast to build your explosive strength. This will cause your body to adapt to the intent of your central nervous system (CNS).
What are the program's priorities?
For this program, core lifts are the most important piece of the puzzle, followed by supplementary movements, and finally followed by assistance lifts. If you must cut anything, cut in order from least important to most important.
What is RPE?
RPE is the acronym for rate of perceived exertion and is a way to self-regulate intensity. The following is the RPE scale used for the program. REMEMBER that RPEs are not emotional or a challenge, they are a pragmatic way to modulate intensity to the day’s strength levels. RPE is a measuring tool.
More on RPE...
4 Light weight for active recovery or mobility 5 Warm-up weight 6 Too light to have a significant training effect 7 Could have performed an additional three to five reps at the end of the set
And a little more on RPE...
8 Could have performed two to three additional reps at the end of a set 9 Could have performed one additional rep at the of a set, maybe two 10 At a max, no additional reps could be performed at the end of the set
