MegaStrong powertraining at The Fitnessclub Delft
MegaStrong power training focuses mainly on heavier strength training in the gym, targeting the three fitness and strength disciplines of powerlifting: the Squat, the Benchpress and the Deadlift. The athlete seeks his / her maximum limit (one-rep-max) - of course with the right technique and execution.
These strength disciplines are also often used as a basis to become stronger for various other sports, such as judo, shot put, rowing, etc. The explosive and general strength of the athlete will increase considerably.
The Fitnessclub Delft is the gym in Delft where you can train in these disciplines with the right training and guidance.
The training of a powerlifter is aimed at increasing muscle strength and to a lesser extent on increasing muscle mass. A powerlifter will therefore follow a sport-specific training schedule, aimed at the right disciplines: strength, technique, volume, intensity and frequency. In addition, there are many types of powerlift methods & protocols that can be used to get stronger.
Unlike a bodybuilder or active fitness practitioner, a powerlifter will follow a powerlift schedule that includes workouts in low rep ranges (1 to 5 reps) with more rest between sets (3 to 5 minutes). In addition, a powerlift schedule consists not only of the three compound exercises, but also of supporting strength exercises to strengthen smaller and / or weaker muscle group(s), such as dumbbell presses, barbell rows, shoulder presses, etc. Technique training is central to a powerlift schedule.
What does a competition powerlifter train for
A competition powerlifter trains to become as strong as possible in three compound exercises which are tested in a powerlifting competition. During a powerlifting competition, the aim is to move as much weight as possible. The execution of the three exercises is highly regulated, with the correct execution being paramount. In addition, there are strict rules regarding registration, the different weight classes, the type of sportswear, the competition structure and doping policy.
