BIG 3 STRENGTH SYSTEM

SMALL GROUP STRENGTH TRAINING EXPERIENCE

what is big 3 strength SYSTEM?

Big 3 strength system is a training method developed by Performance Coach Sam Butterworth. Previously described as a specialised powerlifting program for everyday people looking to get strong in the Squat, Bench Press, and Deadlift, Big 3 Strength system has re-emerged as a unique small group training experience operating out of Function Well Gym in Newstead, Brisbane.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

BREAK PLATEAUS AND INCREASE STRENGTH

Having a plan and process behind your training is the key to getting strong and achieving your goals and we take the guesswork out by providing your own personalised program where every set and rep is planned out for you.

TRAIN WITH LIKE MINDED, MOTIVATED PEOPLE

Every session you will be joined by a small group of individuals who are also looking to 10x their strength and hit new personal records. Together you’ll motivate one another to put in 100% at every session because there’s nothing like the power of social accountability!

IMPROVE MOBILITY

Train with big compound movements that strengthen the body through full ranges of motion helping you to not only stay injury free, but move better in your day to day life

TRAIN SMARTER, NOT HARDER

Each cycle is planned with scientific principles of training in mind so that you can forget slogging it out on the gym floor and get the most out of your efforts. Our training platform manages things like volume, intensity and recovery so you can train smarter, not harder.  

ENHANCE TECHNIQUE

Learn the basics of powerlifting technique to move the barbell efficiently and safely, and become a master of the Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift

PERIODIC TESTING

The Big 3 lifts are put to the test and the end of each training block. By continuously measuring progress you will be able to always have a clear goal in mind helping you stay focussed and consistent with your training, the perfect recipe for continual results.

“The benefits of strength training are second to none and mastering the technique of the BIG 3, the Squat, the Bench and the Deadlift is no mean feat. If you want to learn from one of the best Junior Powerlifters in the country then I encourage  you to have a crack at Sam’s BIG 3. It promises all kind’s of gains!”

SIMON BUTTERWORTH

I loved every part of the Big 3 program. Coach Sam created a great environment in which everyone felt comfortable, no matter what level they were at. The programming meant that I didn’t have to even think about what I was lifting – it was all done by Sam and I just had to stick to the program.  I really improved in my lifts and was so happy to get some PBs on the final testing day.  I would highly recommend this program for anyone looking to improve their strength in a supportive and really fun environment.  When’s the next one Sam?  Sign me up already!!

MELISSA COGZELL

Sam has such a positive attitude and was extremely respectful of my age and shoulder limitations, yet he still got me safely benching (almost) my bodyweight! He pushed me every time, in a healthy and productive way, and I could feel and see the results at the end of only 6 weeks. He kept track of my workouts so always knew what my progress was each week too (when I couldn’t even remember). Sam’s tremendous coaching and support whilst making it fun at the same time, ensured we all had a laugh and there was so much encouragement for each other every session. If you are serious about getting stronger then this is the program to do just that.

JO BALLARD

“Sam’s Big 3 Program was just what I needed to mix up my training. Sam created a great training environment and brought the energy and motivation to each of the sessions. Never have I added that much weight to all 3 lifts in such a short time. Well designed and easy to follow program that made me want to do it all over again”

CLINT EDWARDS

“What can I say about the big 3…. just do it! The challenge both physically and mentally that you go through is an unbelievable feeling of achievement. Reaching my powerlifting goals including a 100kg deadlift wouldn’t have happened without having Sam support me through the entire 8 weeks. Thanks Sam!”

ZOY SULLIVAN

This has been a great experience that not only helped me increase my lifting but has also helped me feel more comfortable and confident with the lifts as well. After hurting my back last year, I was very hesitant to deadlift especially at heavy weights. However this program took me from doing a scared 40kg on initial testing day to a final weight of 135 kg.

LIAM HEGARTY

I really enjoyed being part of the ‘Big 3’ program.  Sam’s upbeat attitude is infectious and he made the training fun.  The focus on technique and form really helped me make some solid improvements. I’d definitely do the program again.
