PIA's Powerlifting Journey

Recommended Posts

yeah its just another way to mix things up.  i've been doing the explode lift lately too

From what i've experienced, that explosion is hard to train. The elastic rebound that you have to teach the body just plain sucks. It just wrecks my triceps.

Thanks man, i've been trying hard for the past month and a half to get after it. The consistency is great! And I feel twice as strong as I have in the past. I have been greasing the groove when it comes to proper form, But my upper-middle back strength seems to allude me as my form breaks when I hit the concentric portion of my back squat. So to remedy it, i've been killing the rows and the "good mornings" 

 

I was using T-bar rows for my back. I bulked up there quick.

My gym stupidly got rid of its T-bar Machine.

I do t bar rows like this guy (just a little less weight). 

I used to do it like that until the gym owners told me I was tearing up the wall. I had to revert back to Bent-over-rows.

I find a machine that's got a good corner and is it to keep from tearing up the gym.

I worked out in a gym in Charlotte with Boo's bf and they had built a little box out of 2x4's for the end of the bar to sit in and not destroy the wall.

 

 

When I do them, I use a V bar handle on the bar... great, great exercise for the entire upper back.
