BUILD YOUR CHEST: The chest is the primary mover in getting the bar off your chest. 

As powerlifters we do numerous leveraging weight however sooner or later you simply must get more potent. 

Decrease that arch. Arching is superb however I really like to take away all benefits if now we have greater than 10 weeks till the meet.

DB Bench (incline, flat, decline): I really like dumbbell paintings so each and every arm has to paintings on its own. This could also be a great way to ensure one aspect is insanely more potent than the opposite which can lead to asymmetric lockout.

DB Ground Fly: I were given those from my husband who were given them from Josh Bryant of @jailhousestrong. YouTube “Dumbbell Paused Ground Fly” and it comes proper up. 

Superb motion and it, like pin presses,  will humble you as a result of there is much less stretch reflex while you come with the pause. 

*Professional tip this is to in point of fact squeeze the load together with your chest off the ground dont simply carry your arms in combination.
