Fletch said:Havent been on this site in ages since just after i joined i pretty much quit powerlifting lol but recognised your name bud as I've been attempting to become a sprinter since and saw you won BUCS indoor last year, are you not gonna compete this year? Very strong lifts indeed, looks like you may need some technique work on some fo your equipped stuff considering your raw strength mind.


definitely, i'm still really new to equipment but getting there. need to seriously get the straps taken in on my suit as well there's 2-3 inches of air between the straps and my shoulders/traps once i get the bottoms on properly, so it's hard to believe i'm getting as much out of them as I could be.

I will be sprinting this year, just no 60's, wanna see if I can run a decent 100m for a change.

ahright yeah, if your competing in single ply at your strength i would go for the strongest kit possible (centurian, katana) and have it REALLY tight. (you will notice a big difference with tighter straps) Anyway good luck with the training bud, i might even end up powerlifting in lighter weight class this year if i keep constantly being injured because of sprinting! That sport ruins you! lol

tell me about it, that's why i'm powerlifting through the indoor season, there's no way i can keep up the training for indoor and outdoor sprinting, i've tried enough times to realise I can't do it now lol. At least I can get stronger though! I'm using a centurion and an f6, I will probably try the katana soon, but was warned against it for a first shirt.

I'm wearing a 42 f6 which isn't really small but takes 20 minutes to get it on properly, and then my forearms start to turn blue... so probably tight enough for now!

And the centurion is a 40, but I'd like to try out a 38, takes 30 seconds to get it on and straps up, seemed like a really good fit first time I used it, but I can hit depth with an empty bar now...

lol yeah you defintly need a tighter suit, if you haven't got some already, get some suit slippers (tight like things) and get a very tight suit.

Regarding the Katana, it was first shirt i ever used and its not that bad, it did help alot that i was training with andy bolton and the lads though. Having a shirt liek that will make you get the technique right, the f6 will be far more comprimising but at same time weaker.Make sure you have good spotters though if you get it (one on each side, not just a center spot)

p.s Im just wondering tom, how difficult do you think it is to learn sprinting technique, i can do all this powerlifting technique but my sprinting form is so so sooooo terrible! lol. Feel like i'm running out of time to get it right before comps espeically considering i keep getting damn injured!

I'm still clueless on sprint technique. I get told to do all sorts of things, but when I start running it all just resets to whatever is natural. I wish I could help, because then I'd have a clue what to do myself as well. GOOD COACHING (something I haven't had in a long time) is surely the only answer, and I don't know where to find it. It's so difficult to tell whether little changes are making you faster or not, especially while running.

Best advice I can give would be get yourself to the EIS in sheffield, they have a long section of track with electronic timing gates every 10m. I found it useful to work over 30m segmants, both from blocks and with a flying start. Make little adjustments and see for yourself exactly where it helps or slows you down. I spent a lot of time there last year doing this, but at the end of the day if I had a coach to tell me straight off what to do, I might not have got injured killing myself doing endless sprints experimenting with technique...

very suprised you don't get any good coaching mate, seems bit unfair considering. Cheers for the idea, il give them a call and find out how much it costs etc, only like 50 mins away, might get some people down with me and maybe a camera.

It's all an illusiiiooonnnn!

the end plates were nothing more than big rubber 10's allowing me a false sense of grandeur! should've seen it when I had 190 on for 3 board press the other week, it looked like about 260kg! If I go for 180 next week I promise I'll do it properly!
