Rackable Cambered Bar, Blue Bands, 15" Box + Block Pulls: (VIDEO Included)

Monster Garage Gym/Maroscher Coaching Log: By MGG owner, 2-Time WPC World Powerlifting Champion, Eric Maroscher.
This installment of the MONSTER GARAGE GYM/Maroscher Coaching Log features three members of the MGG who are all in competition prep for the APF Senior Nationals. *WPC World Powerlifting Champion, Steve Brock, 2014 APF Senior Nationals Champion and Best Lifter, Mike Strom and WPC World Powerlifting Championship qualifier and competitor, Shaun, Kopplin.

The purpose of this log is to show you footage of EliteFTS blue band box squats off a 15” box using an EliteFTS rackable cambered bar, plus bar weight. As well as training footage showing block pulls. There are many ways to use a box for your squats, and this is a method utilizing both accommodating resistance as well as a non-traditional squat bar. Because of the tension of the blue bands, all three are training out of the EliteFTS monolift and not the squat rack.

The footage in the accompanying video captures a good chunk of the training from the day. *The training footage in this video (filmed in HD, let load to 720 or 1080 for HD quality). The complete logs from Steve, Mike and Shaun are also below for your perusal.

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, or what you already like about them.

As always, thank you for following the Monster Garage Gym/Maroscher coaching log. We hope you found this log and our other prior logs of benefit to you. Ever Onward, Eric Maroscher.
