Have You Ever Used Prilepin's Chart For Powerlifting?


Have you ever used Prilepin's chart for powerlifting? It's answered a lot of questions for many lifters over the last quarter century. Based on their skill levels, lifters could look up the specific numbers they needed to aim for in their workouts and particular exercises so they could get the power levels and bodies they were looking for.

Critics of the chart point to its age, noting how much health, medicine, and science have grown and changed since 1993. Also, the chart was more for Olympians than rank and file lifters. Still, it's a very useful reference in many gyms, and to this day it's more accurate than a lot of websites out there people can look up on their phones.

It's no substitute for setting your own goals and especially listening to your own body. However, if you're just totally confused about what goals to set and how to achieve them, it's a very useful starting point that can point you in good directions.

Sometimes, you can find modified or updated charts, but use those with caution, since you might not know the credentials and expertise of the authors of these 'upgrades' that are floating all over the Internet.
