This week was Thanksgiving, so I put all those extra calories and carbs to good use during my holiday training.
Good solid week this week, with good results in the low bar squat, deadlift, and tactical pull ups. Today I'll discuss how I determine my objectives each week.
Watch Russian powerlifter Andrey Malanichev squat 440kg for three reps, with only knee wraps as support.
Despite spending half the week cramped up in little aircrafts, I was able to get most of my training in. On Thursday I did some SSB work and am still feeling the burn almost a week later.
Partials are any exercise where you purposefully do a shortened range of motion instead of the full range. Partials don’t take the place of full-range lifts, but are used as a adjunct to them.
In addition to my powerlifting schedule, I’ve decided to compete in Strong First’s Tactical Strength Challenge on April 12th, so I've added a few things to my training.
A lot of this week was devoted to wrapping up some volume work from last week. Check out the video for some tips on pause squats and the sumo pulls.

Some weeks you just have to make the training brief, and this was one of those times. It was a light week due to work and travel, but I'll be back full swing next week.
Meet Brittany Pryor - a natural female strength athlete with a 497lb squat, a 534lb deadlift, and a 303lb bench.
Breathing and abdominal bracing are probably the most important aspects of successful lifts. This video will show you how to breathe properly so you can pick up heavy stuff.
