Strength Tips and Training Videos


? #Repost @heath.e.r with @repostapp ・・・ *Long Post Alert* When I first started powerlifting and made the commitment to compete it was really just to be able to say that I did a powerlifting meet. But after that first competition I completely fell in love with the sport and the platform. I continued to train myself using whatever resources I could along with @nordicberserker’s help and I was able to make a lot of progress a few months later at my second meet as well. However I started to see that maybe I needed to enlist the help of someone who really knows what they’re doing in terms of programming for strength and powerlifting technique if I really wanted to keep getting better. @nordicberserker had picked up @adam_pine mid-training cycle prior to me trying to find a coach and I had watched him put a ton of weight on his lifts in the span of about seven weeks working with Adam. I knew he was an obvious choice for me and I can’t say enough about him today. Not only has he vastly improved my lifts in terms of pounds and technique but the difference in the amount of confidence I had stepping onto the platform this time was a huge factor in my performance as well. I knew I did 100% of what Adam told me to do in the gym. I watched myself PR on lifts during training week after week, repping weights that earlier in my training cycle I wasn’t really sure I’d be able to hit percentages on but then I did and with as much grace as a powerlifter could have. I surprised myself by the weight I was lifting and at how “good” previously “heavy” weights actually felt in my hands and on my back. I trusted the process. I knew that through working with Adam I had set myself up for success and the outcome of my meet was a testament to that. As I continue to work with Adam in the months to come I know that I am going to be able to achieve each and every goal I set for myself in this sport of powerlifting. He has gone above and beyond as my coach also stepping into roles like psychologist, mediator, motivational speaker, messenger…the list goes on really (lol) but I’m most proud to also be able to call him my friend. #longpostPR #girlswhopowerlift #rpspowerlifting #momstrong
