For example, if your initial “training max” on the squat was 200 lbs., during the first two-week cycle your squat poundages would have been 130 pounds during your 65% workout, 150 pounds on 75% day, and 170 pounds on 85% day. During the next two-week cycle, a smart progression would be 135 pounds on 65% day, 155 on 75% day, and 175 on 85% day. Again–and I cannot stress this enough–you’re far better off adding what will feel like “not enough” weight than too much. The goal isn’t to use a huge amount of weight and “max out” every time you’re at the gym; rather, the goal is to add a small amount of weight each cycle so that several weeks or months down the line you’ll be using substantially heavier weights. Each workout is a link in the chain to the next cycle, and tacking on too much weight from one cycle to the next will create a very weak link, and your chain is likely to break down much faster than it would have, otherwise. This is not the routine for someone hoping to add 50 pounds to their bench press in eight weeks.

Athletes, like all others, may have illnesses or conditions that require them to take particular medications. If the medication an athlete is required to take to treat an illness or condition happens to fall under the prohibited list, a therapeutic use exemption may give that athlete the authorization to take the needed medicine. Criteria for granting a therapeutic use exemption are 1.) The athlete would experience significant health problems without taking the prohibited substance or method, 2.) The therapeutic use of the substance would not produce significant enhancement of performance, and 3.) There is no reasonable therapeutic alternative to the use of the otherwise prohibited substance or method. Note hormone replacement therapy (HRT), . supplementing with prescribed testosterone in any form to raise testosterone levels due to natural decreases that occur with aging (even if to just elevate levels to within ‘normal’ ranges), is NOT considered a medicinal exception. Persons using HRT would not be eligible for WPA/NANBF/IPE competition.
