best strength hypertrophy routine ?NEWUSER ihsanb 12 23 daysjamiee321 (1): Totally up to personal preference. My current program is 10X10 with other bits and pieces thrown in for extra volume :) I based my last back day off this https://blog.dukesgym.com.au/blog/workout-baby-got-back/ So it was basically 10-12 rep range and giant sets.

Pre-meet programming Thomas_Rascon 5 8 monthsBeans (4204): The amount of time lifting is a big factor in how strong someone is. I wish I started lifting at 15, but didn't start until I was in college. One thing you'll learn is that nobody worth a damn cares about how strong beginners are. They appreciate that you like the sport and work hard. I think you're numbers are good for 15, but never worry about not being strong enough. Just lift consistently and do you. I don't compete, but you have nothing...

Do we even? SRorhrbac0808 18 2 yearsleanr0x (4183): dont think so. it's because you can pick a tighter squat than deadlift suit because on squats you can pick a very tight suit and let the weight press you down to parallel but on deads you have to bring your hips down by your own so a deadlift suit can't be that tight just my personal experience

Anyone going to switch over? nine0seven Jump to first page79Jump to last page 2 yearsGrizzlyBerg (9214): I think my opinion would be biased just because I know/follow more American powerlifters than Europeans. I also get the feeling that European powerlifters (especially Russians) have done strength based lifting (olympic/powerlifting) from a young age. On the other hand, a lot of American lifters have trained for bodybuilding prior to switching to powerlifting (and also incorporate bb style accessory work into their programs). I do feel that...

Knee sleeves Zepa 14 2 yearsBeans (4204): I use Rehbands. I like them a lot. They fit pretty well and are easy to put on and take off. I've had them for 2+ years, squat 2+ times a week with them. I only have them on when I squat. I take them off for the rest of my workout and wash them after every 1 or 2 uses. I hear people say theirs have worn out but mine are mint, so I'm assuming this helps.
Brandon Lilly as "coach" MMB 14 2 yearscraig (835): I'd be surprised if he wasn't taking on more than ten and just sending out the same programs. Being 1 of ten makes you feel lucky, it sounds better than 1 of god knows how many. I've used coaches myself and now I'm a bit skeptical, at the end of the day they can't pull the weight for you and what's to say what they have you do is any more optimal than the many respected routines out there. As for the comment above about how he looks, he has a...

eating/drinking on a PL comp leanr0x 6 2 yearscraig (835): I'm close to the 93kg limit so eating before weigh in is usually out for me.

I've actually not eaten much when the comp has started which is probably a mistake, I think the last one I ate a chocolate flapjack and had a few energy drinks.

powerlifter should train like bodybuilder ! golago 9 2 yearsgolago (163): A recent study by Brad Schoenfeld illustrated this point beautifully. Two groups of lifters either did 3×10 or 7×3 with the heaviest loads they could lift. At the end of 8 weeks, the group doing sets of 3 gained more strength, but both groups gained the same amount of muscle. Ironically, a lot of strength athletes jumped all over this study, saying, “See, I can get swole doing my heavy triples!” without noticing two major caveats: The...

POWERLIFTING CUTTING RHGF 14 4 yearseknight (56977): That's up to you- just be aware that at some point, cutting will catch up with you and strength increases will be more difficult that if you were on maintenance or above. -3X

Chest Workout Video - JordanW Rep out 385lb JordanWFitness 6 4 yearsNorIda (46699): I agree completely with Ek It's awesome that your here, but actually being involved in the community, rather than trying to promote your YouTube channel, would be awesome. It's pretty sad when I see a thread posted by you I automatically assume there is a vid posted Which is fine, you're not the only one. But if you really want to promote yourself, you should be trying to network with the people in the forums, after all, someone here may be...

DYEL more than a 13y old girl? Cannonball Jump to first page39Jump to last page 4 years4real (3319): After rewatching the vid i take it back her rom is quite good and shes strong as hell
Powerlifting meet with Eric Lilliebridge wannabemuscular 2 4 yearsigg (2626): Jeez, that's crazy strong for a 22 year old
Powerlifitng Shoes DaveyDizzle 4 4 yearsCannonball (6229): Depends on your squat technique mostly. For bench press extra heel is always nice, but kinda gay for squat its nice if you wanna push your knees forward and do the OL bounce in the bottom, but if you actually wanna compete in powerlifting thats a poor style for deadlifts you always want to lift without shoes pretty much
MOBILITY!!!!! Danimal_88 1 4 yearsDanimal_88 (9757): Hey Everyone, This youtube channel will change you life. The mobility work I have learned from this channel has helped my major 3 so much over the past couple months. http://www.youtube.com/user/sanfranciscocrossfit?feature=watch aware yourself
Strenght training and recovery Markovich 3 5 yearsLinus (154): That sound like a upper/lower rutine. You could max every day and the repeat bout effect will adapt you to that work load. It will be quite un safe but you do as you like. MPS (muscle protein syntesis) is elevated for 24-36 hours after training, so every muscle can rest for a whole day before hitting it again. Your routine has muscle over lap, so not every muscle gets that whole day rest. Again its not a big issue, but i would recommend a...
Powerlifting Markovich 5 5 yearsMarkovich (595): Just watched the video of Dimitry Klokov, held just like him, but still felt some pain in my wrist :/ Im sure it's just a beginners problem

My f*cking Hero Oleksander Kutcher IrishGymSheep 8 5 yearsMonster81 (1678): Holy fuck! I've noticed the weights dip to my right side when I squat. Is that floating squat rack a scale as well? Just curious.
Powerlifters Markovich 14 5 yearsCannonball (6229): ammonia is the only thing I've wanted banned in powerlifting. its annoying as fuck to have to be near people who uses it because it makes your eyes itch and tear up even if you're 6 ft away, and sometimes thats the max distance pretty much in the warmup booth or whatever
BENCH COMPETITION HELP!!! SRorhrbac0808 Jump to first page50Jump to last page 5 yearsCannonball (6229): Yeah.

Powerlifting Markovich 26 5 yearsMarkovich (595): It's something I have had all my life, long before I started any sport or training, so I might have to see a physioterapust soon. but I will start doing more rotator cuff work and band pull a parts. If there is nothing I can do about it then I will see the doctor =)
Contrasting Benchpressing techniques?!? Stupot316 8 5 yearsIn4gainZ (454): Because Dave Tate said so. The anterior delt is less involved in the motion and it placed in a safer position than bodybuilding bbbpress, there are no pl or bb style, there are only the right way to bench whice is "pl style". How can you explain that athletes can hold more weight and not get injured while they are doing bb style with LESS weight and they fuck up their shoulder? Pl style is a whole body exercise,shoulder joints safe and...

HEAVY WEIGHT LOW REPS Frantic 10 5 yearsAverageJoe (4510): I'd say, tell your friend to aim for 4x10 with lighter weight with a 2-1-2 tempo, full range of motion with no locking of the arms at the top of the motion, as Weider recommend it ;P . And yeah, diet is so important. myfitnesspal.com could really help for that!
squatting with block under heels? bullet 4 5 yearsspyderboys (136): i personally do them because 1. im tall and my football coach in high school told me that its hard to get as low as possible with such long legs so it helps me personally squat lower, but my main reason is i dont have good flexibility in my Achilles tendons so it helps me squat and not be on my toes or getting off balance
Strong North Korean at the Olympics cardinal 6 5 yearsG3NGHIS (8532): He was doping to be able to lift that weight. You guys are so dumb sometimes I swear. Know the facts! Kim Jong-il allowed him to lift that. Om admitted it too. Olympic Committee can't test for metaphysical doping. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/olympics/article-2180825/London-2012-Olympics-Om-Yun-Chol-thanks-Kim-Jong-il.html
