WASHINGTON: Powerlifting is a strength sport that consists of three attempts at maximal weight on three lifts: Squat, benches, and deadlift. Powerlifting involves the athlete attempting a maximal weight single lift of a barbell loaded with weight plates. It is not about repetition in lifts, but in lifting the most you can, before putting them down. Zadlifts follows a now eighteen-year-old powerlifter whose goal is to pick up ever heavier things.
Before putting them down again.
What powerlifting does not require is steroids. Or even a heavy body mass in order to achieve impressive powerlifts, squats and bench press weight goals.
Five Years of Powerlifting Dedication
Starting as a fourteen-year-old, ZadLifts is a dedication to reach a maximum potential – a goal that changes with every lift. Gaining 90 pounds, while maintaining lean muscle mass, over three years, ZadLifts regularly deadlifts over five-hundred pounds, his personal best is 535. His bench press is 330 and squat if 500 pounds.
Having employed powerlifting in his daily routine, ZadLifts strives to show that the best competitor is yourself. Via dedication to the sport, learning proper techniques and never giving up, one can regularly lift more than double his own weight.
Zadlifts Powerlifting Journey
Taking powerlifting into a new direction, Zadlifts shares his first three years of Powerlifting – starting with lower weights appropriate for a then fourteen-year-old body, working to reach weights that are impressive when taking his overall body mass into consideration.
Zadlifts hopes to show a new generation of powerlifters that even the “little guy” can do amazing things.
Note: You begin a powerlifting program with an eye on the long haul. There is no overnight success. There are no quick ways to become a powerlifter. Your only competition is yourself. Before starting any weight training program, consult with an experienced trainer or coach. Learn proper techniques. Use the correct equipment, including belts. Find a buddy to work out so that you always have a spotter. Rotate your workouts. Take recovery days. Avoid smoking, alcohol, and drugs as they work against your goals. And always check with your doctor before starting any diet or weight training program.
