I had been progressively increasing strength for a few years by simply just adding weight to the bar each week. My goal was simple – beat the load I lifted the previous week. Predictably, I started hitting plateaus and was unsure of how to start progressing as more of an intermediate lifter now. Reading the Muscle and Strength Pyramid books was just what I needed to learn how to approach bodybuilding as “training” instead of just “working out.” I took it a step further and reached out to Team 3DMJ for a consultation to get even more in depth.

I now have a training plan mapped out that will allow for increased gains during the next chapter of my training career. I highly recommend the Muscle and Strength Pyramid books for those looking to get the most out of their training and nutrition.
