Tempo Bench Press: The Most Impactful Movement Constraint Variation

Tempo Bench Press: The Most Impactful Movement Constraint – CLICK HERE

In my February video on Powerlifting Now, I take a 45 minute deep dive into how we can use movement and programming constraints to help fix and align technique, rather than the traditional methods of internal and external cueing. But within that, in my opinion there is one movement constraint variation that stands above the rest…and that is tempo bench press. In one way or another, the vast majority of lifters I coach perform tempo bench press in some manner within their programming. Some intermittently, as a way to re-align some of their internal cueing and processing with how they perform bench press. While others have tempo bench press programmed at all times throughout the year as a constraint to manage their technique, typically those with higher frequency. In my latest YouTube video, I cover why that is, and how I feel more lifters can benefit from tempo bench press than any other variation of any lift. I cover a couple simple tips I use to get the most out of this variation. And then lastly I detail some programming basics on how to effectively implement tempo bench within a lifter’s program to best set them up for success. Click the link above to view!

The 3 Step Deadlift Setup

The 3 Step Deadlift Setup – CLICK HERE

Continuing in my series on deadlift technique, one of the primary issues I see within deadlift technique is the issue of people “reaching for the bar” at the initiation of their setup. Where in reality, grabbing the bar is one of the last things you should be doing in the initial setup phase of the conventional or sumo deadlift. And usually, “reaching for the bar” is in combination with someone who goes through all phases of the deadlift setup in one fell swoop, rather than breaking down each movement step by step. In my latest YouTube video, I am able to yet again do the impossible by keeping a video under 7 minutes, with the 3 step setup that I coach the majority of my lifters to use. This top down setup approach helps to simplify, slow things down, and manage the positions needed that enable a lifter to then grab the bar to initiate the slack pull and wedge. The key here is patience though, and breaking up each of these movements step by step before moving onto the next. Click the link above to view!

Easy Deadlift Setup Cue To Fix Your Hinge

It still is a bit crazy to me just how many powerlifters do not know how to properly hinge, from beginners all the way up to elite level lifters. The hinge is the key component and foundation of what a deadlift is, especially with the conventional deadlift. So if someone does not know how to properly hinge, they are missing out on the lowest hanging fruit in improving their deadlift setup, technique, and strength. In my latest YouTube video, for the first time ever I actually do a short, simple, and under 10 minute breakdown of an easy cue to implement that can help most anyone improve their ability to hinge. I’ve actually mentioned this cue in some Instagram stories before and still to this day have people reach out at times asking if I had a video of this setup somewhere saved. So after noticing how often I was repeating this hinge trick to my athletes, it was time to put it out there on video! Also, I give a little teaser on a project to come starting next year that will guarantee even more content coming your way. Click the link above to view!
