As powerlifters, we all love to go heavy, heavier and heaviest, but filling in the gaps in between max effort type days is an integral part of a successful powerlifting program. The purpose of this log is to demonstrate that even with a crew of lifters, most of which can pull into the 700’s, some training days are about the work, NOT only about big weights. Getting caught up in the moment and deviating away from the training plan now and again, A-Okay, getting caught up in the moment all the time is counter-intuitive to your overall programming.
HARD WORK "IS" THE SECRET!!!!!!  VIDEO INCLUDED (A MUST WATCH)
HARD WORK "IS" THE SECRET!!!!!! VIDEO INCLUDED (A MUST WATCH)
Powerlifters can lift and compete for many, many years, but the harsh reality, the brutal truth is, powerlifters within these competitive years have only a finite amount of “best years,” in the sport. Here is the catch, one never knows how long they can sustain their best years, when they are at the top of the sport, as powerlifting is one of the most body-violent sports on the planet. Watch the training of one of today's best powerlifters as he is on the precipice of his best years, and see how he trains to stay in those best years thus complementing huge numbers with longevity.
