Since there’s been some major triggering in the Powerlifting world over a post on sumo deadlift technique which was written by one of the most respected & successful coaches in our sport, I’ll leave you this evening with a 160kg/352lb board press x3 at RPE triggered AF. Seriously people: constructive feedback is not a bad thing. Grow up!
