Larry Wheels Takes Pyramid Training to a New Level

By now, you probably follow Larry Wheels on Instagram (@larrywheels) and know
that the 24-year-old powerlifting/bodybuilding phenomenon is
constantly pushing his limits in the gym. It seems that he can take
virtually any
lifting technique
and create his own amped-up version, and his
latest series of posts does just that with pyramid training. 


Pyramid training
is a fairly common way to switch up sets and
reps throughout a workout. Rather than doing straight sets of a
single weight and number of reps, a lifter using the pyramid method
would change the weight and rep count with each set, either going
heavier and doing fewer reps or going with a lighter weight and
higher reps. Wheels opted to do both (a triangle pyramid) and took
it to the extreme by adding or subtracting 90 pounds with each
rep.

In three consecutive videos, Wheels worked from 225 pounds up to
an 885-pound deadlift, from 135 up to a 500-pound bench, and from
225 up to a 775-pound squat. Check out the lifts below, and please
don’t try to lift as much as Wheels does.
