So a few of the very strong guys at the powerlifting gym close to me are trying to start something new. They want to start throwing events where the big events are:
Their belief is that these 3 lifts will be a more “true” test of strength than back squat and bench press. John (the one who is running it) really wants to change powerlifting and create a raw event where these are the big lifts.
They are throwing their first big meet in June and I’m personally going to prep for it and see what happens.
They truly believe this can take off because of the plethora of information that is out today about training and lifting.
My questions are:
If this version of powerlifting became “big” how do you think that will change the way people train or view current powerlifting?
What type of records do you think there will be?
How would this change your training if this is something you got interested in?
These are are smart and really strong guys and I think just maybe if they market it right they can get a bit of a run going.
