Welcome back to Week 3 of our Powerlifting Series. For our last episode Clare walks us through what she does for a more powerful deadlift Deadlift The deadlift is the third competition lift and typically the heaviest lift, using the most muscles. Pull-ups Pull-ups are a great back builder. A close grip will create a greater range of motion but allow for more use of the biceps Meadows row The Meadows row is similar to a barbell row but puts less stress on the low back and allows for unilateral training. Seated wide grip row A wide grip row hits the back but also mimics the bench press bar path and can potentially transfer over to that movement as well. Fm high row The cable Freemotion machines help work stability and again allow for unilateral training. Work on those imbalances! Face pulls Facepulls hit the traps and rear delts and can be used to improved rear shoulder stability and strength, which will be important in all three lifts.

Welcome back to Week 2 of our Powerlifting Series. This week Clare walks us through her favorite exercises for a more powerful bench press. Bench 3-4 sets x 5 reps The bench is the second competition movement and must be paused on the chest to be competition legal. You don’t have to always train the bench with a pause, but it can be beneficial to avoid bouncing too much off the chest. Overhead press 3-4 sets x 8 reps The overhead press builds shoulder strength and stability, which are both key to a big bench. Dips 3-4 sets x 8 reps Dips are a great exercise for the triceps. They can be stressful on the shoulders so try not to go below parallel and keep good form! Assistance should be used as necessary. Floor press 3-4 sets x 10 reps The floor press trains mostly the lockout of the bench press by hitting the triceps in a limited range of motion. However, starting from a dead stop with each rep makes the movement much harder and helps build starting strength. Cable lat raises 3-4 sets x 10 reps Lateral raises are a great way to isolate the shoulders. Doing these standing over a cable allows the weight to move more in line with the medial deltoid, a part of the shoulder that often gets overlooked. Prehab - Db YTIs DB YTIs are a great prehab exercise to ensure that your shoulder blades are moving properly and staying healthy.
