Dr. Stefanie Cohen, DPT- Are you folding over in the squat?

By Dr. Stefanie Cohen, DPT- THE STRIPPER SQUAT: how quadriceps or hamstring dominance affects your movement Folding over in the squat is a common technical error I see often. Essentially the lifter goes down to the bottom of the squat with good form, but then during the concentric or upward portion, their chest collapses down, and the hips shoot up. .

herbietheluvbug- Last heavy #deadlift #workout before the meet. Worked up to a top single with 387.5kg/854lbs. It moved well and I was tempted to go heavier but I decided to play it a bit safer and leave some in the tank. I’d like to think this is indicative of me maturing as a powerlifter. After this I did high deficit deadlifts #beltless and worked up to 310kg/683lbs for five. powerlifting video #2 Last heavy #squat before the meet. 435kg/959lbs for a #PR single. Good session with the #squad @bossbarbellclub . @dangreenpowerlifter with the coaching, wrapping, spotting.

Rest in Peace Brad Madvig.

By Monica Augustine When your circle is microscopically small, losing one of your real friends, hits all the harder. Today I learned my "Powerlifting Husband" (A term of endearment coined by his wife Amy Madvig in relief that he had someone to talk all things powerlifting to besides Jim Cahill) that Brad Madvig made his transition. Brad endured well over 100 brain surgeries in the past couple years as his condition progressed, a condition fitting of Brad, so rare that only 200 documented cases worldwide have ever existed.

blanca_villoch- Deadlifts today 455lbs. for a single and 440lbs. x2 The 440 dub was definitely a rep PR (and offseason at that!). Went a little bit off programming today with deadlifts... but when you’ve got @evalaurabelle_ifbbpro @antman_smash @micah_marino and @steff_eff15 hyping you up, i had to see what’s in the tank Great day lifting at Angry Joe’s Gym in Vegas! Great equipment and great peeps! powerlifting

c.c_holcomb- 585X1 for my last deadlift day, before the USPA Tribute Meet @uspatexas! First time competing without truly training for this meet. I was nervous to get back into meet prep at 6 weeks out, but I’m extremely pleased to know my strength is still there. Looking forward to offseason. powerlifting
