Recently I decided to compete in my first official powerlifting competition, scheduled for Spring 2019. If you're unfamiliar with powerlifting, it's a barbell strength sport involving 3 different lifts: squat, bench press and deadlift. The idea is to lift as much weight as you can for a single repetition on all 3. The more total weight you move, the better you do. The decision to compete has given me new drive and focus in my training, and has caused me to make some adjustments to my routine. The video below is the first in a series I'll be doing sharing my training footage with me talking in the background, explaining what I'm doing and why. Click below to check it out.
