If you plan on competing in powerlifting there are many items you can use to help advance you in the sport and help to prevent injuries. It’s important to remember that powerlifting federations will have their own rules in relation to what can and cannot be used.
Both powerlifting and Olympic weightlifting are competitive sports in which the athlete is required to undertake a number of lifts. Whilst each form of sports requires a significant amount of strength and athleticism there are a few factors which differentiate one from the other.
Strongman exercises may seem daunting. After all, huge athletes lifting massive amounts of weight is something that most of us cannot do. That being said, incorporating strongman exercises into your workout routine can help to burn fat and build muscle, you just probably won’t be lifting the same sort of weight as a typical strongman!
On the face of it, powerlifting may seem to be a relatively straightforward strength sport comprising of three main lifts, the squat, bench press and deadlift.
However, these three lifts require excellent technique and form and this is only achieved by a lot of dedicated practice.
