Pen and Paper Strength App
For those not familiar with PPSA, the programs are created by Aaron Ausmus aka meatheadwhisper who up until january was head S&C coach at USC since 2019. He was also head S&C coach at USC in 2010-2013, UT S&C coach in 2009.

he was National champion 97 at UT in the shot put. Aaron was trained in 97 by Tommy Moffit and always says Moffit is his mentor. Aaron is associated with Sorinex and has written squatober every year for them and did the first year of deadcember.

the PPSA programs are old school. Simply piece of paper template you print, fill in weight and then reps. So imple its hard is the motto, along with lifting heavy, eating thick.

The Programs are essentially dedicated to getting big and strong. There is strength and pump work in every program.

You Can find them LINK

They also post up lost of awesome workouts and companinion stuff on the Pen and Paper strength app instagram/facebook. GreySweatpantssociety on instagram, as is Aaron Ausmus personal instagram page. I suggest you follow all of them.

re: Pen and Paper Strength App
So I asked Aaron how he would lay out the programs if one owned all of them and wanted to participate in Squatober and Deadcember and this was his response


"I don't think there is any one real set way to lat them out. I would just avoid doing back to back months of a five day program and learn to mix in the 3 day programs as need for recovery while using the 4 day programs as the base. I think prequel is actually better in August and September should be a month to gain some steam and recharge by using a 3 day plan before heading into squatober, same concept with November heading into Deadcember."


I really love the style of training that PPSA is with the heavy lifting mixed with the pump work. I will be getting into my new house and will have access back to my FULL garage gym sometime before labor day. I plan to setup the rest of this year and next year as follows:

August-December- This will be the Greyskull LP Aesthetics template. Really just trying to get used to lifting with the barbell again and being under the bar. The goal is to get back where i was strength wise or close to it with minimal volume while cranking the intensity.

Jan-April- Grasshopper- this is to get me used to the volume of PPSA. Grasshopper is 8 weeks, first 4 are 3 days per week with the last 4 being 4 days per week. I may run it even 3 times, but plan is twice.

May-SuperSet- this is 3 days per Week. This is to allow more of a recovery for the body and with the Knowledge that May is crazy for me between kids baseball, school award things, kids getting out of school etc.

June-July- Its POOL Season BABY!!! Honestly this is just to get back to the base of 4 days, get some hard as work in to look good while setting up for the gruelling winter months.

August- as AA suggested, I will be hitting The Prequel here to prepare for Squatober.

September- Dumbbell Strength- This is AAs new program he just released. This is 100% to give my body a break from the barbell heading into squatober. Lots of volume here but not the beat you up kind and has lots of squating. AA recommends this one as the lead into squatober.

October- Its a squat party baby!! I will follow along with everyone on the Squatober programming.

November- How much ya Bench?? I want to take a break from the squat and dead centric programs and focus on bench some.

December- Deadcemeber programming from Daniel McKim as he post it on the official deadcember instagram page.


From there I plan to hit a lot of the bench programs in 2023. But I thought I would lay this out so people understood how to lay out these programs.

re: Pen and Paper Strength App
You got any advice on an order to run these? Or rather which would you suggest someone run first? What’s the hallmark program?

re: Pen and Paper Strength App
Grasshopper is the intro program. After that pick one from the descriptions on the site that sounds like something you would like.

re: Pen and Paper Strength App
I think it just depends on your current goals - strength vs hypertrophy or upper vs lower body. Volume, frequency, and intensity differ across different programs. Sometimes it’s hard to tell from the program description on his website, but some programs are described pretty strait forward. I don’t think there is a designed order for the programs though.

re: Pen and Paper Strength App
yea after i make the purchase i will put a link in this thread.

after i complete this collection ill work on the ones from Daniel McKim who does the deadcember programing for sorinex now and is a 4x highland games world champ. He has 9 programs, all very similar to ppsa in the programming and style. McKim precribes to the thought process of "If you are not eating little debbies, you are not growing"
