ASCP - Mass building

Pillar Prep

Coach
Yasir Mustafa

This program is the "mass phase" of Accelerated Strength and Conditioning Protocol (ASCP), an intensive 8-week program designed for individuals with intermediate to advanced lifting skills seeking rapid gains in muscle mass and strength. The program strategically combines three weekly strength training sessions with two conditioning sessions to optimize both maximal strength and hypertrophy, without compromising overall conditioning and work capacity.

For intermediate to advanced lifters not engaged in competitive sports, the program is suitable for use at any time.

If you are an athlete in speed and power sports, ACSP - Strength phase is more appropriate for you.

If you are a beginner lifter without great technique, this program might be too intense for you. We recommend Initiate program
