I.e = convert a bodybuilder to a powerlifter. Ive been wanting to powerlift at a meet for a few years now, strength just wont go up really. The heavier it gets, the lower the reps i can do (yea let me explain). If i would do 400lbs, i can do a lot of reps, and if calculated i should hit x-amount of weight for 1 rep. If i do 500lbs for reps then, i achieve not the amount of reps i should achieve compared to what i was able to do with 400lbs. So..example: at 10 reps w 400lbs, i calculate my maxlift should be at x pounds. Now i take those x pounds and calculate how many reps i should be performing with 500 lbs -> Must do y-amounts of reps with 500lbs to theroetically achieve the maxlift with x lbs. Trying out 500lbs - not even getting close to y amount of reps. Question - How to convert bodybuilder strength (i.e. many many reps and shit) to powerlifter strength Is there a "special" plan for this scenario? Anyone done it and how did you achieve getting powerlifter retarded strength?
