- Switching up my three week waves on speed days using bands on one wave and straight weight on the next! Just got brand new light and average bands from @elitefts so I can finally start doing dynamic effort days without loading up multiple bands🔑 Speed Squats 5x2 @ 250lbs/114kg + 120lbs band weight Speed Box Squats 5x2 @ 250lbs/114kg + 120lbs band weight Speed Deadlifts 10x1 @ 250lbs/114kg + 120lbs band weight Trying to reinforce speed with sub maximal weights. There's a time and place for speed and if you're trying to be as strong as possible, you must train to be explosive and fast at certain times🙌 There is no substitute for strength and no excuse for a lack of it. More work to be done🏋 ------------------------------------ #powerlifting #squats #benchpress #deadlift #speed #bodybuilding #crossfit #weightlifting #strength #power #peachgang🍑 #fitspo #fitness #gym #fitgirl

- W2 - Deadlifts. Well it was nice to finally get in a good deadlift session, as the last two were pretty shitty. Played with bar placement a little bit and found that having the bar an about two inches away from my shins allows me to start with my hips higher and gives me more room to drive my hips through to lockout. Still feel a little weak off the floor but that is just something I'm going to have to work on overtime. 455 was the fastest it has ever been for me, and there was no real grind at 495, so that is a great sign. 👍 ----- Sumo Deadlifts (shown in reverse order) 455x3 (shown) 475x3 (shown) 495x3x3 (last set shown) Straight Leg Deadlifts 315x8x3 ----- #gainpost #gains #gainz #lift #lifting #bodybuilding #strength #power #powerlifting #benchpress #makingprogress #personalgoals #gymselfie #instafit #guyswholift #powerlifter #gym #fitfam #garagegym

- Not all exercises are created equal. Nor should they be. Depending on goals, athletic back ground, anatomy and many other variables exercises are chosen to help the ATHLETE reach said goal. We hope to elicit a positive outcome from exercise selection and manipulation in what we call a training program. Here is a picture of an exercise I would call "controversial" in the strength and conditioning world regarding powerlifting goals or utilizing the "power lifts" in training to help reach X goal. The negatives are quick and easy to point out. 1. You must have bands and preferably Kettle Bells 2. Its inherently unstable and can be dangerous 3. It can not be loaded "heavy" relative to the lifters potential therefore it can't cause much strength or hypertrophy stimulus, most likely from being under a certain intensity threshold. 4. If it is loaded relatively "heavy" it could be really dangerous. What this exercise is most commonly prescribed for is to strengthen the smaller "stabilizer" muscles that help contribute to the bench press. Some people may or may not like it enough for this purpose and may believe in using other exercise or methods to reach the same goal. After all there is more than one way to skin a cat. But now that we've looked at the negatives and the potential upside let's look to see what this bench variation actually makes you do when applied? It forces you to slow down. It forces you to NOT accelerate all the way to the top of the lift because it will throw you around and shake your arms like a rag doll. You must stay in a slow and steady groove. You now have more time to think about where the bar is touching on your chest. You have many reps to practice with because it's light. You can think and tinker with wrist and elbow position. You can practice 20-80 potentially perfect reps with little no fatigue. What I have found for myself is that I use it as a scapula retraction exercise. Not to strengthen it per say but to "feel" it. I would call this taking physical therapy POV to a specific powerlifting variation. It's not so heavy I get excited and try and push with all my force, it's slow enough I have to consciously think through the lift
