5thSet Evolutions

by Swede Burns

133 pages

5thSet is a movement. It's a different way of training and a new perspective on progress - a shift in focus away from a meet prep cycle.. to a lifting career. 

From the original 5thSet for Powerlifting

"The program does work for everyone and it is logical, progressive, and scalable in a way that allows lifters of all experience levels to advance in the world of strength sports — but it goes further than short-term PRs. 

For everything in 5thSet for Powerlifting, there is a reason. Swede didn’t mix together various training concepts at random, simply compiling programs until he found the right one. 5thSet was developed out of necessity and polished through the willingness to question the correct place for intensity, volume, technique, and hypertrophy work in a training program. Your success with 5thSet doesn’t rely on constantly pushing intensity, or increasing volume every week, or doing hours of hypertrophy work in hopes that size will translate to strength. 5thSet uses all of these things together, with intentional purpose and programming."

5thSet is a "soup to nuts" methodology, including everything you need to know from the first time you set foot in a weight room, to the last attempt in a meet, and even beyond. It is, without a doubt, the most complete work of its kind.

5thSet Evolutions takes this to a whole new level. 

5thSet for Powerlifting laid the groundwork — making way for 1000s of PRs worldwide. 5thSet Evolutions expands on the methodology, provides new protocols, re-examines complex issues, and gives the reader more control and understanding of their own body and progress than they ever imagined. Swede draws on classic training literature and brings it to light in real application — clarifying and making content connect in ways that anyone at any level of training can understand. Simply reading this eBook will change the way you think about training, forever. 

Evolutions is not stand-alone (meaning you will still need the first book — found here), but includes all of the advancements and tweaks we have made in the last two years, experimenting with and learning from a monstrous sample size of lifters. There are new protocols (like those used in meet prep by JP Carroll, Greg Panora, Ellen Stein, Sin Leung, Jessica Belt, and countless other top-ten ranked powerlifters), a new MSM sequencing system, an extended peaking cycle option (and how to determine when that is appropriate), an injury prevention chapter, an extensive chapter on the psychological component of training and competition, weight class transitions, more detailed information about how and when to do raw and wrapped cycles for the wrapped squatter and a ton of new template variants.
