  6. Newbe Powerlifter

    Yo I know a few of you are powerlifters... RESPECT :grin: I'm planning to start powerlifting as soon as possible! But I have a few questions: Since I havn't trained like a powerlifter before what training split and routine do you old guns recommend? What volume of sets and reps should I be looking at? Any traps for young players? Looking to compete maybe next year! My stats: (if you don't read my journal :pfft: ) Age- 17 Weight- 76kg Bench- 95kg Squat- 120kg Dead- 125kg

  9. Newbe Powerlifter

    Cheers for the feedback guys! nice! :pfft: I had a workout just full of squats today :twisted: Bettered my PB and feeling pretty comfortable with the weight... I reckon my deads will increase quite rapidly once I actually train with them consistantly! As for my bench... I'm at a sticking point... Any thoughts?
  10. Straps?

    Hey guys! I'm wanting to get some straps for deadlifts, pull-ups etc... just wondering how many of you use straps and do you only use it for certain exercises? And where's the cheapest place that sell straps? :pfft:
  11. Straps?

    Yo MZ, I'll definitely try out chalk but for now I think straps will do! :grin: As 2guns says I would only use straps for my last few sets when I'm going heavier, for DB pull-overs too? I do 4-5 sets of wide-grip pullups and find that I hang by my fingers during the last few reps :pfft: so this would be a set where I would use the straps. Yea bro I find BB rows especially hard to grip as I go heavier.... not as heavy as you ofcourse hooks? I wana be able to drop the weight too :pfft:

  22. need a question answered asap!

    hey guys, im doin an essay for my studies and im just wondering (this may sound stupid to some) if anabolic steroids, growth hormones... are allowed in the competitive bodybuilding circuit??? Thanks in advance!
  23. ::da_yellow_fellow::

    lol oh well its always good fun :pfft: Box jumps are great but I find that its more cardiovascular work than strength/power, a while back I used the calf raiser machine and performed jumps with weights :pfft: that worked great! you will definitely improve your vertical jump with thos! I've had some achillies issues too, I found calf raises strengthened my achillies quite well, not heavy weight though, use lighter weight for 20reps stretching the achillies tendon at the bottom, hold, then power through.
