Mike Kuhns Powerlifting Program…

Grip Work

(this workout varies widely depending upon Raw or Equipped and where Mike is in the training cycle)

Friday I Bench Press; this workout varies widely depending upon Raw or Equipped and where I am in the training cycle. If I’m training Raw the start of my cycle will have top set reps as high as 8. When I’m peaking its triples, doubles, and sub-max singles. If I’m training equipped, its whatever I can touch to my chest; unless I catch a workout with Niko Hulslander and Garage Ink. Niko works me hard in a shirt and helps me maximize its usage.” – Mike Kuhns

Squats – work up to 2 top sets, never completing more than 4 reps per set


“This layout isn’t set in stone; I adjust accordingly when I have to. I’ll work certain areas harder than others if I feel I’m lacking. For example, I’ll combine days when I have to because of schedule conflicts. ” – Mike Kuhns
