I hope you’re enjoying your weekend!

It’s been a crazy busy week with work and training.

I’ll start with a recap from my meet last weekend, followed by strength tips and 15 of the best articles from this past week.

Meet Recap

660, on the left was my opener.

Felt good, very light in my hands. I was happy with how this moved.

705, on the right. It felt good off the floor.

I missed the lift due to the bar going up and down. My callous ripped on this attempt and I think that the bar sliding in my hand was what caused the up and down.

Strength Tips & Training Videos

Work on mastering your technique. People often automatically associate missing a lift with a muscular weakness. I missed (insert lift) at lockout, I need to work on (insert variation). Sometimes this is the case, choosing the correct variation and focusing on bringing up the weak area can improve the lift. Another common reason people miss lifts is their technique. Work on perfecting your technique and many of your ‘weaknesses’ will improve. @titanbarbell #powerlifting #marshawn #press

Last heavy pull before the meet, @ 655. This will be somewhere around my opener. Happy with the speed but I would’ve like to have been a little more upright on this one. This would’ve let me get my hips closer to the bar and allowed me to get a better push off the floor. @titanbarbell @syattfitness #powerlifting #deadlift #tuglife
