  • Force Time Curve: Max effort with Submax Weights and Determining Volumes
    by precisionpowerlifting on 05/24/2022 at 4:45 pm

    Written by: Kevin Cann We have all heard that we should move the weights with intent, but what does this mean and why do we want to do this?  Powerlifting is a sport where we lift the most weight for a single repetition in the squat, bench press, and deadlift.  We need to develop the qualities necessary to do this at our highest levels. When we are lifting, we want to apply maximal force to the submaximal Read More

    Written by: Kevin Cann I started to become aware of powerlifting in 2014 as I took a job at a gym with a strong powerlifting culture.  I was not interested at the time in the sport as I was still doing my own things.  I knew what Westside Barbell was and had read a lot of Louie’s stuff from my many years of working with high school and college athletes. This is how big his reach was Read More
