100kg x 5 reps with the Slingshot for Reece this morning at Barbell. . This is the first time he has pressed 100kg and he went and did 5 reps at the end of the bench session in a fatigued state. . We utilised the Slingshot this morning for a couple of reasons; novelty to keep interest high, working the top the bench press to strengthen lock out and to keep weekly volume high without overloading the shoulder joint, and also because it's really cool to hoist some big weights! . We are...

These ridiculously strong men & women competed at our fourth push pull competition (bench press and deadlift) last weekend and totally smashed it! Before weigh in they were asked to fill out a small form telling us their current PBS (personal bests) in each lift. We've compared their actual lifts to their PBs leading into the competition and as a group they totally SMASHED it! A combined total of 216.50kg of PBs! Each and everyone one of these amazing humans have worked hard and most...

All these amazing people competed at our Wanganui Barbell Push Pull "world champs" competition this morning. A full recap to come (and you can rewatch the fun on the live feeds we posted earlier today) but safe to say that MANY personal bests were broken, lots of weight was moved and heaps of fun was had by all. We want to thank each and every one of you for coming among and having a go, whether you competed for the first time (we hope those nerves dissolved quickly!), or you've done...

Emz with a huge PB deadlift 112.5kg. A bit hitchy at the top but she pulled the weight. . Previous testing max was 90kg. We focused on high volume deficit deadlifts and doubles and tripples in the 90-95% range for the majority of the training cycle. Previous session we did a primer session, tacking on some heavy but fast singles to get her used to pulling a heavy single with the view of testing max next session. . We'll done to Emz. She is well in tune with her body and "gets" technique...
