Are You Making These 3 Mistakes With Your Powerlifting Programming?

Weak point training has its place in powerlifting, though it often gets misused
  1. Training at the sticking point (instead of before)
  2. Variations that aren’t specific enough
    • Pick how you vary things
      • Change in implement:
        • Specialty bar
        • DBs/KBs
        • Unilateral
        • Resistance curve
        • Intensity (proximity to 1rm)
        • ROM
        • Grip/stance width
  3. Underuse of accommodating resistance.
    • Yes, it’s great for lockout strength,
    • Especially with bands I find this to be an INCREDIBLE technique builder as it really rewards consistent tightness
    • Building explosiveness  – input force vs adjusted external load and velocity.
