I’ve listed the weights that I used during this session below, but choose weights according to your own capabilities.
Slingshot training is great for getting a “feel” for heavier weights. 170kg is my current competition maximum, so hitting it for reps in training each week allows my body to get used to the feel of this weight in my hands.
These build hypertrophy and stability work for your bench press.
I love high bar squats and prefer to go beltless when not close to a competition.
This is my favourite upper back exercise. I perform these as strict as possible while using the heaviest weight I can manage.
This is an absolute killer exercise for glutes and hamstrings. I’m not strong enough to perform these unassisted so I use a little push at the start of the movement to help.
There’s a wide spread belief that big and strong biceps help build a bigger bench press. Having not performed much bicep work over the past two years I’m currently putting this theory to the test and doing bicep work three times a week.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this power-lifting off season training cycle session. Stay tuned to the Bulk Blog for my of my workouts.
