Our Approach

There are a lot of free programmes online, but that's all they are programmes.  Your Strongest Year was started to give everyone access to a yearly periodized strength programme that will get you stronger and reduce your chances of injury.

My mission is to make everyone stronger and to help drive the standard of strength training and powerlifting globally.

Our Story

As a strength and conditioning coach working in professional sport and a powerlifter and powerlifting coach I have been around strength sports for over a decade.  I got started reading websites like T-Nation but only by meeting and reading from actual powerlifting coaches did I ever develop as a coach or athlete.

With this website I want to provide everyone with a source of accurate and effective powerlifting and strength training programming and advice.
