Dead lifting was up-and-down today as I was attempting to set my back better. Last week I missed 625 due to a hitch. I ran into some weird balance issues when the weight got heavier and I was setting my back, probably improperly. After my first Miss I ended up bailing on overthinking my back...

One thing I have noticed is that the majority of the team members do not know or understand what to attribute their success to. Some attribute it to people...

Between dead lifting and squatting I really can’t tell you which movement I like more. It would end up being a week to week decision. This week in particular I was sick so squatting did not go so well which really had me excited for today’s deadlifting as I was programmed to hit a new...

Of all the skills that go into Powerlifting, upper body pressing is by far the most difficult and underdeveloped compound movement for me personally. This is a combination of a physical and mental barrier which started mid last year when I got shooting pains through both triceps. I have struggled to consistently be able to...
