Int/Adv Powerbuild

Get started today!

What is powerbuilding? It's the combination of training to get strong and look good! This 6 week gym program is designed for the intermediate/advanced lifter who wants to lift heavy while also incorporating the classic bodybuilding movements to build a well-rounded physique. This is designed exactly like how I train and you'll get to do all my favorite exercises. We'll work on the classic powerlifting movements (squat, bench, deadlift) while also doing a ton of work to build the glutes, shoulders, hamstrings, back, etc. The workouts are designed to be done 5x/week with two rest days. I incorporate some high intensity circuits, burnouts, and cardio, but these are optional. These are for the lifter who is used to the extra volume and likes to finish with workout with a good sweat sesh. Please read the workout descriptions for recommended percentages on the main lifts. If you do not know your one rep max, then pick weights that are challenging, but still doable with good form and full range of motion. Let's get swole!

Testimonials

We absolutely love your program, we had tried one before we started yours and yours is so much more user friendly, fun, & keeps us interested! I can't wait to try them all! My neighbor who works out with me was complaining how she hasn't lost a single pound and was getting frustrated. I told her I'm pretty sure we're swapping fat for muscle because I am noticing a difference in the mirror and in my clothes and the crazy thing is I weight the same in the first picture and second picture.

When I hit 40, I could not seem to lose weight. I saw Sarah Herse on Pinterest and followed her for quite some time before I decided to purchase her app. I will never do another workout again. Sarah's workouts have given me strength and my muscles are showing again, even with a diet not quite as healthy as I like. I tell everyone about her, even men! She is truly an expert. I am forever grateful.

About Sarah Herse

WBFF pro & Crossfit Level 2 Trainer

I am a lover of all things fitness. As a pro bodybuilder, powerlifter & Crossfitter, I don’t believe you have to chose between strength & aesthetics. I believe you can lift heavy, feel strong, and look hot while doing it. Before I discovered the magic of lifting, I wasted a lot of years trying different fitness classes & never got results. Once I truly gave in to the power of lifting, I fell in love. I not only fell in love with what my body looked like, but also what it could do.
