Relative Strength Improvements on Maximum Strength

Written on December 4, 2008 at 12:15 pm, by Eric Cressey

I received this email earlier this week:


I am a longtime follower of T-Nation and picked up your book, Maximum Strength, this past summer. I just finished with Moving Day and want to thank you for my great results in 16 weeks.

I am 6’3″, 180 lbs and my weight stayed the same the whole time because I have low body fat to begin.

My Results:

Broad Jump: 91″ to 122″

Squat: 225 to 295

Bench: 215 to 235

Deadlift: 365 to 455

Chinup 3RM: 45 to 60

This book worked great when I had a goal to strive for.

Thanks again, Eric.

    Have you compiled a list of everyone who has gone through the Max Strength program and reported results? It would be interesting to see what the average gains are.

  • Avoid the most common deadlifting mistakes
  • 9 - minute instructional video
  • 3 part follow up series
