what is power lifting
What is Power Lifting?
  • A sport or lifting routine which consist of attempting maximal weight on a lift.
    • Bench Press
    • Squat
    • Dead Lift
    • Great for increasing power, explosiveness, quickness, and speed when done with proper form and technique.
performance
Performance
  • Functional in which the motions are what people do on a daily basis
  • Powerlifts are compound movements in which two or more joints motions are involved.
  • Help Develop Triple Extension
    • Simultaneous extension of the hip, knee, and ankle joint
    • Great for explosion
powerlifting
Powerlifting
  • Combination of power and strength in which heavy weight and high velocity is done throughout a lift.
    • Highest power output occurs when performed at 30-45% of maximal strength (Biren pg 148)
  • Not only force on concentric contraction but also eccentric contractions.
adaptation to power lifting
Adaptation to Power Lifting

Muscular

Neural

  • Muscles hypertrophy
    • Increase contractile protein(actin & myosin)
    • Primary muscle fiber is the type II (fast twitch)

(Biren pg. 148-149)

  • Increase in motor unit recruitment
  • Motor unit synchronization
  • Enhanced ability to recruit the Type II muscle fibers
  • Decreases in Golgi tendon organ activation
bench press
Bench Press
  • Develops strength in the muscles

of the pectorals, shoulders, and

triceps.

  • Technique:
    • Lay flat on the bench with eyes directly under the bar
    • Place hands a little wider than shoulder grip and lift the bar from the rack, moving the bar directly over your shoulders.
    • Lower the bar slowly and under control allowing it to touch the chest
    • Drive the weight explosively off the chest by extending elbows

bench press1
Bench Press
  • Coaching Points of the Bench Press
    • Take a deep breath before lowering the bar to fill the chest with air and engage the core to keep back from arching.
    • Keep wrists rigid and directly above elbows.
    • Movement of bar should be down and slightly forward, and up and slightly back.
    • Lower back should remain in contact with the bench throughout the lift
    • Do not bounce the bar off your chest

squat
Squat
  • Develops Strength in the quadriceps, thigh adductors, glueteusmaximus, and hamstrings
  • Sqautting Technique
    • Start under the bar with the bar across the center of your shoulders, and your whole body under the bar.
    • Lift bar off rack and take one or two steps back from rack while standing erect.
    • Slowly descend by pushing hips back and flexing knees while maintaining the angle of your torso; descend until mid-thigh is parallel to the floor.
    • Start ascent by driving your feet into the floor while simultaneously raising your hips and shoulders until you return to the start point

squat1
Squat
  • Coaching Tips for Squatting
    • A closer grip will activate the muscles of the back
    • If bar is too high or too low it will tend to mess up the form of the squat
    • Head and Eyes positioned forward
    • Before descending, inhale deeply to prevent leaning forward and arching the back, exhale near top of squat
    • At bottom of squat do not bounce, jerk, or stop your motion

dead lift
Dead Lift
  • Develops strength in the muscles of

the legs, hips, back, torso and hip

stabilizers.

  • Deadlift Technique
    • Place feet hip-width apart with feet straight ahead and shins almost touching the bar
    • Place hands on bar with pronated grip with your hips slightly higher than your knees and your weight on your heels
    • Lift bar slowly off the floor to just above the knee by slowly extending your hips and knees
    • Once the bar is above the knee, extend hips forward and engage the core to establish an erect position
    • Squat down by pushing your hips back and flexing your knees until the bar is returned to the floor

Dead Lift
  • Deadlifting coaching tips:
    • Keep head in neutral position looking forward throughout the lift
    • Take deep breath to fill chest with air and engage core; exhale near top of deadlift
    • Do not jerk the bar off the floor, raise it smoothly and under control
    • Raise the bar, knees, hips and shoulders in unison with a constant back angle throughout
