Monster Garage Gym/Maroscher Coaching Log: (Log number XL). A TRAINING WEEK IN THE LIVES OF POWERLIFTING WOMEN
The world of powerlifting is predominantly a male driven sport, but we are seeing the greatest influx of women in powerlifting meets than ever before in the history of our great sport, the sport of powerlifting. With that said, if you are a powerlifter relegated to training at a corporate gym, chances are, you are the only one of a couple of powerlifters at that gym. The chances are even greater that the other powerlifter is male.

The purpose of this training log is to give you a glimpse into a week of training for some women powerlifters. The accompanying video is not a highlight reel, nor is it a compilation of max effort lifts. Rather, this coaching log features the all too neglected “stuff” in-between the max effort lifts and the meets and the highlight reels, and that is the plain old-fashioned sets and reps that powerlifters, in this case, women powerlifters, put in during an off season training program.

This video features a peek into four training days at the Monster Garage Gym comprised of primarily several working sets of a higher rep scheme (volume), as the more seasoned powerlifters are coming off of a number of competitions and are in the time frame following several meets yet prior to the start of the next meet prep. This is the time for re-building the foundation that will ultimately be needed to support the sets, reps and pounds required to get back into top meet shape. This is the training BEFORE the training and that is an all too often neglected portion of the powerlifting success formula. Note: For the newer or intermediate powerlifters following the MGG logs, going from a meet immediately into another meet prep will arguably yield diminished results vs coming from a meet, taking the time to re-build the foundation and focus in on weak areas, then move into the meet prep cycle.

This higher volume training is the training you will find in this coaching log video. We have used training footage from the four training days and footage from an array of the women powerlifters at Monster Garage Gym (MONSTERETTES) during these four training days, so as best provide you with a diversity of lifters to view. The range in lifter in the video is from novice to world champion, (including three Monsterettes currently on in the Top 5 on the powerliftingwatch rankings for 2015), from 100LB bdw powerlifters through 198LBS, and from lifters training for their first meet to lifters coming off of some of the biggest meets in the US this year.

Movements in the training video, in no certain order:
Rack pulls, squats, plate-removed squats, belt-squats, flat bench, bench with Metal Catapult, close-grip speed bench with EliteFTS mini-bands, barbell rows, dumbbell kickbacks, face pulls, rope tricep pushdowns, deadlift, deadlift off 8” blocks, a variety of band pre-hab and re-hab movements, EliteFTS mondo monster leg press, glute-ham-raise, lunges, band ab standing crunches, hanging abs.

We hope you find this video and log as a whole of use to you in your training. Please let us know by your comment(s) if these logs are useful to you and what we can do to make the better. If you like them, we would appreciate it if you would share them.
