  • @paytonspowerlifting competed at his first meet this past Saturday, and could not have performed better! He came away with a 9/9 day, hitting a 424lb. squat, 198lb. bench press, and 446lb. deadlift for a 1069lb. total! I am not surprised at all by this though, as Payton is one of the hardest working athletes I have had the pleasure of coaching, and I had little doubt his efforts would show through on the platform. With this being his first meet and ever lift guaranteed to be a PR, I had him take a more conservative approach and called attempts about 2.5kgs less than I would someone who was more experienced. Not that Payton couldn't handle a bit more aggressive attempt selection, but any time it is someone's first meet my goal is to strive for perfect execution and set a solid standard to build off of. 
Moving forward for the next 5-6 months minimum, we will be focusing training on building muscle. This doesn't mean strength won't increase, nor does it mean he won't squat, bench, and deadlift. But being only 18 years old Payton's number 1 goal should not be specificity of powerlifting, but rather becoming a well rounded strength athlete by building a solid foundation of lean muscle mass. I told Payton from the get go that with his frame he will eventually be a 105kg competitor. So over the course of the next 4-5 years our goal is to slowly build him up to that weight class while continuing to develop him as a lifter. In the new age of powerlifting, too many people jump right on in to ultra specific powerlifting training. But if you look at the most successful powerlifters, most started out as bodybuilders, or at least focusing on bodybuilding style training during the first 2-3 years of the lifting career. Fortunately Payton has zero pushback to the idea of arm pumps and lots of bro days, as he loves a good arm workout just as much as he likes a heavy squat day! @paytonspowerlifting competed at his first meet this past Saturday, and could not have performed better!

  • 😵GOBLET SQUAT CHALLENGE😵
-
Found this little diddy on @testosteronenation and it was brutal! Do this challenge at the end of your leg day to test your mental strength, muscular strength, and endurance strength. -
It’s done unbroken (see final vid for example). Start at 50% of your body weight for 15 reps. Drop 20% of that weight for 15 reps. Drop another 20% of that weight for 15 reps. Drop yet another 20% of that weight for 15 reps. Finally, do a set at just your body weight. -
Your legs will hate you, but you’re gonna love them. 😵GOBLET SQUAT CHALLENGE😵 - Found this little diddy on @testosteronenation and it was brutal!
