These principles can be applied to any weighted movement but for simplicity sake we will be using the Back Squat. 

Most importantly you need to have a plan, what are going to lift each time you go to the gym.?

 4-week progressions, remember that jumps in weight will happen slowly

HOW TO DO IT 

Take some advice from the best Powerlifters in the world.  The program that has worked best for me is Jim Wendlers 5/3/1 system (CLICK HERE  FOR DESCRIPTION OF 5/3/1 PROGRAM)
