For powerlifting purposes, I never recommend training to failure. Absolutely, one of the many changes in the second edition book was the addition of several alternate templates for people with a variety of goals. That is one of the best features of this method.

Now he performs a traditional reset and blast away again getting all the way back up to while destroying the log book along the way and packing on quite a bit of muscle. You have to make the program work for you and your goals, not the goals of a damn program created by somebody that has never even spoken to you.

In my opinion the GSLP is the perfect blend of hypertrophy and strength work and the greyskyll is unlike any other Novice or Intermediate program that I know of.

For example if you struggle with the lockout on bench, focus on board presses. Also because we have removed the squat on Day 3 it allows us to prioritize the deadlift greyskulll compared to the other LP programs.

That was what I think made the greatest contribution to the second edition. Simple, the press and bench use less muscles and are less taxing on your CNS then squats and deads.

At this point, fatigue quickly sets in and most of the reps the novice accumulates after this point are going to be poor technically speaking. Adding 5 lbs 2 times per week would yield a lbs increase over 6 months, is this completely realistic, maybe?

I’ve been on the program since December and here’s what i gained so far: I liked using his variations. Even he only matched his records from before he still got stronger. Otherwise, you are going to end up backing off for a bit before continuing. The second easy way is we train freyskull 9 straight weeks blasting as hard as we can along the way and we greyskukl all kinds of personal records.


Again, it is never necessary to perform the press and bench press in a 1: John does offer one solution to rectify this particular issue with the program. This is more of advanced technique and should be used after stalling on other methods.

This allows the user to continue to progress for much longer and not slam themselves into a wall. Essentially due to the programs principles, it can be adapted for anybody and everyone. I am a fan of this approach. This entry was posted on Greysiull 31, Want a bigger yoke, well pick racked deads, farmers walks, truck deadlifts power cleans etc.

If you believe this then you are beyond help.

Section B- Low Intensity Conditioning- Please see the book on this, but essentially walk in the fasted state in the morning, preferabbly at an incline at a slow pace or with a weighted vest. Form on squats could be better, but it will improve over resets. But again the bottom line is that if Joe Blow can now bench lbs for 11 reps greysoull is stronger than he was when he could only do lbs for 7 llp this is undisputable.

If you need to gain weight, he’ll get you there. Why do we only deadlift once per week while squatting twice per week?

GreySkull LP Isn’t Good, It’s Great

I had a beginner friend of mine get on it a couple of months ago and he’s seen great gains strength and body composition wise. There is only one set of five deadlifts per week. In these cases typically the only investment those people end up needing to make is more plates as they grow stronger, which is not a bad problem to have. Johnny would allow his trainees to push the last set to failure while performing a reset to not make them do the weight they already did for the same number of reps as before.

Deloading- There are three simple protocols you can use for the deload a. There is nothing wrong with having confidence, but we can all improve in some way and you need to figure out where it is you need or want to improve and address this when choosing a variant.

While a third edition is not on my hellacious release schedule at this time, I would definitely consider its eventual release a serious possibility.

They are rotated either once a lift stalls multiple times, for simple variation and boredom, or to fill in physique goals. Decide for yourself, but I cannot recommend this program enough to those that are not extremely extremely advanced and even then the principles hold true. The biggest mistake people make when trying to improve bodyweight movements is going all out too soon. Well, in my opinion, the Greyskull LP, and the accompanying GreySkull LP bookis the single best general version of linear progression that is currently floating around the internet today besides ProgrammingToWinof course.


Johnny adopted these changes because he never understood why you abandon the most basic premise in training after only a few months and he never accepted that an LP can only work for so long. I also added a huge section explaining the teaching methods I use for the major lifts. I’m not doing the neck harness or the frequency chins.

What the hell is the point of lifting the weights so hard if you are just going to turn around and make terrible food choices and grow your man boobs as faster than your biceps? This is noticeable in before and after pics from trainees that have run these programs and an over development of the lower body or should we say under development of the upper body is very noticeable.

Use Pushups and Chins to increase volume to cause Hypertrophy. This is the greyskul, form of the GSLP for fat loss. You do this by implementing all the sections of the book including the llp intensity conditioning. Greykull, the versatility of GreySkull is one of the reasons I consider it the best available linear progression program currently available.

If you feel yourself getting beat up, your mind is not into it, well cut the blast and perform a cruise, come back refreshed and then get after it again.

I understand that it sucks to start 15lbs lighter than a weight you just lifted for greyskyll reps, but we are trying to work the program and the best way to get the program to do what you want is to start a little lower than you think.

Part 3-Exercise order- See page 32 in the book for more info Because most people prefer to have a well-developed upper body, we focus our intensity on the upper body lifts first in a workout. He wrote two awesome articles about why he left and how to unfrick your Crossfit gym.
