I just read a reply by Phill in another thread and it opened my eyes. I think I should put together a few tests to see what exactly my weaknesses are. If I analyse my lifts and my numbers, I should be able to target what I need to work on.
The thread was about powerlifting, but it would apply to the athlete the exact same way.
-Standing Long Jump
-Chinups (max reps)
Would this be a good set of things to test? I may also test my row, I’ve noticed my weak spot is about 1 inch before the bar reaches my chest.
Sorry if this was common knowledge to everyone else, but I just never thought of things this way.
Is there anything I should be looking for when I do the tests (probably in 2 weeks cause thats the testing week of my program)? Where my weak spots are, comparing lifts to each other…
I’ll post them up here once I get them so you guys can analyse the information.
Thanks for the help
