Keep moving forward...

Another step closer to my 200kg goal, my body felt SO good today. After having a week off, I got my mind in the correct space and ripped 175kg off the floor (3 times)
-
I need to work on my grip strength now so I can maximise the power the rest of my body can produce
-
Shout out to @nikszentirmay
@gym_and_wine and @jeromereyes.jpg for the encouragement

So many reps πŸ˜“ 15,13,11,9,7,5,3,1 starting at 65kg and going up 5kg every set, last single at 100kg. #squats #powerliftingnz

NZFE2015 RECAP: Joseph Whittaker from Northland took out the NZ Total Record with this 330kg deadlift to total 880.5kg and best Overall Male in the first ever NZ National Record Breaker Powerlifting Championships at the NZ Fitness Expo!

This time a month ago was struggling to max at 100kg only 4 weeks the. To jump into another max session and pump out 120kg I'm wrapped. #deadlift #powerlift #powerliftingnz #gym #fitgymfyf2017 @fitgymcambridge @joshliftsthings

Farrrrkkk more #deadlifts thanks @rosewatson1 new plan rocks #girlsthatlift #powerliftingnz next up #squats

All the back work that coach @nzpowerliftingacademy has me doing is finally paying off 🀠was able to hit 242.5kg block sumos 22.5kg more than I've pulled off blocks, i did miss grove it at lock out, which means I had more in the tank? Thanks @j.jennings700 for the motivation last night!

Utilising bench press grip width for performance and longevity in powerlifting

Studies mentioned in this article involved participants that were either competitive national to international level powerlifters or trained individuals with a minimum bench press training experience of 2 years [1,2]. The three grip widths are defined as, narrow, the bi-acromial distance, wide, the preferred grip and medium, the middle of the two [1,2]. How does width affect muscle activity & joint angles??
A quick comparison of joint across all three grips reveals that a wider grip is representative of a greater elbow angle, with increased shoulder abduction, than the narrow and medium [2]. This compares to the narrow grip width which has significantly smaller shoulder abduction angle and greater flexion angle than the two other grip widths [2]. The greater degree of shoulder abduction in turn causes an increased level of forces through the shoulder joint during a wide grip bench press, whereas increased elbow flexion causes greater forces through the elbow during a narrow grip bench press [3].
This in return impacts on muscle activation. The wider grip has greater pectoralis major and anterior deltoid activation than the medium or narrow, with the narrow grip having significantly increased activity of the triceps brachii and decreased biceps brachii [1,2].
How does this affect performance and longevity??
These aspects in conjunction with a lesser ROM than narrow grip, result in greater average RepMax being achieved using a wide grip bench press in comparison with the medium and narrow grip [2].
Though more effective in moving larger weight there is large reports of pain induced during the wide grip bench press, with large associations with shoulder pain and injury due to the increased forces through the joint [3].
Practical application of varying widths.
Therefore, using grip variations such as a narrow or even moderate grip bench press during training may reduce stress on shoulders, making it possible to increase the training volume without compromising neuromuscular activation. This allows for longevity of the athlete and insures for continual strength adaption to the movement

Lets go @buzzybee_fan . You got this!!!! #powersoc #powerliftingnz #under72kg

MOST RECENT

Pretty roasted today but hit some 7s (squats) and 4s (pause deads) on the main movements at a lightish weight but it killed me as I'm seriously deconditioned to squats and deads together. hit some accessories after this. #cooked #gym #gymlife #powerliftingnz #strength #powerlifting #squat #deadlift #bench #southernpowerlifting #strongheldsquad #strongheldnz #beastgenetics #sbd

I'm definitely feeling these today 😩 90kg before moving up to 92.5kg.

What do you call a haunted burrito?
BOO-RITO 😒^ this is why i will never get under 74kg

Good news, my booty is finally healing and now i am able to deadlift without extreme pain πŸ‘Œ. No more injuries please and thank you.

Failed my final set .. had a p.t.a.d post traumatic ass disorder. Booty clench

Everything moving how it should, first vid 3ct pause bench and second vid just some skwaaaating. Also like to announce that I have chosen @sumnermb_strengthcoach as my coach for the next 10 weeks! He made me do 5 accessorie movements after these which normally do 1 or 2 haha can't wait for the gains! I'll keep you updated on how it all goes! Pretty excited to see where this goes.

The face you make when you hit a PR 🀠🀠My conventional is pretty much the same as my sumo now lol, and the rounding has pretty much stopped. Tonight's training @northshorebarbell hit 215kg for 2 reps, (3 total reps @215kg) and then got a bit greedy and tried 220kg which ended up made me burn out and can't even pull 200kg (did sumo to finish it of) Nevertheless had a πŸ”₯ sesh, and glad my back is getting stronger and not a maccas fry any more 🀠

😡Day 21, i am still unable to squat or deadlift heavy.The cause of my pain around my left gluteus maximums is still an enigma. πŸ€”I wonder if there's a correlation between the pain in my ass and the fact that i had curl on the squat rack? One thing is certain... I am still single and in love with the potato chip pringles.

Queenstown comp: 235kg Squat (current PR) 160kg bench (current PR) 260kg dead (10kg PR) 4th vid is my missed 267.5kg dead which I missed due to soft lockout my shoulders I think! Overall extremely happy as I was recovering from a pec injury from the week prior. My 260 dead moved like an opener which I was most pleased about and my grip was 100%. Big shout out to @gemmarosestill for all the vids and the amazing support she always brings me to every comp. Very proud of my 2 boys I help out at the gym @isaiah_mclellan2 who went 8/9 and left plenty on the platform and @strongerstringer who absolutely fizzed up and gave it 100 percent on everything going 7/9, he had an epic 6 sec grind on his final dead so close! Big shout out to the spot loaders who had to calculate all the weight off the top of their heads lucky @orlaharris is a mathematician. The rest of the spotters did a superb job considering there was no deadlift rack and weight holders! I'm bloody thirsty now for some more PRs which I now know are there. Really big Thanks to @anna_do_the_thing for being wonder woman and setting up one of the best comps I've been too!

@jessica.polglase was casually lifting (close to) her body weight this morning for 4 x 8 πŸ‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Look what arrived today. Two new IPF specification power bars for the Strength HQ PowerLifting club!! If you are interested in joining the club or giving PowerLifting a go, send us a message.

😒 havent post much so here's a video of my weak bench session. Red lights for days.
πŸ˜‘ another shitty news, i have an injury around my left glute(maybe idk). Prob took it up the ass too much. So no squat or deadliftπŸ˜‚. Injury go away please.

So I mean like...I'm not weak, but not strong either. 122.5kg for 4 sets of 6 reps, ending each set on long pause. Hope the passion for lifting returns to me soon. Until then, I guess we keep going. #u75kg #benchpress #120kg #igfitness #fitfam #powerlifting #powerliftingmalaysia #powerliftingnz #gym

Since my chest feels below average I decided to see if it hurt deadlifting. Hit a new 2RM of 247.5 Hahaha. Thinking of opening 250 this weekend and aiming for high 260s I think! REDEMPTION IS COMING! Might try for a Squat PR also this weekend and if chest feels alright I'll take anything.
