My Top 3 Powerlifting Moves--BURN!

September 17, 2013 2 min read

My last post was my "ode to lifting," but what are my favorite POWERLIFTING moves?  As in most of my posts, I love lifting.  I love the feeling of throwing the weight around and feeling strong and powerful.  But, what I love most is the feeling that I get when I am in the middle of a lift or a set and I feel like I cannot go on...and then I do...just one more set, one more rep, one more time.  This is what I want YOU to experience.  I hope that by giving a slight tutorial to my Top 3 Powerlifting moves, you will be inspired to go and try them!  Always remember that these moves do not necessarily require heavy weight, most of these moves can be done with body weight, bands, or lighter weight. Kaitlin's Top 3 Powerlifting Moves: 1. Good Mornings: How to Perform Move: Stand with your feet strongly planted to the ground, hips width distance apart, place a weighted bar across your shoulders, bend at the hips--this is your starting position.  Then, with your knees only slightly bent, come to an almost standing vertical position, for 1 repetition. Try 3 sets of 8-10 reps. 0910-good-morning-bend.small preview   2. Deficit Deadlift: How to Perform Move: Start with a platform like a small box jump or two-three plates stacked on top of each other, one for each foot.  Place a weighted barbell in front of the platform, stand on the platform, bend at the hips, with your grip about shoulder width apart, inhale and lower your hips down as you are gripping the bar, with bent knees, your shins should be close to or touching the bar.  Drive through your heels and pull the bar upward, up your shins, engaging your glutes, and once the bar passes your knees, pull the rest of the bar up quickly.  Lower the bar slowly to the ground.  This is one repetition. Try 3 sets of 6-8 reps. deficit deadlift   3. Tire Flipping How to Perform this Move: Now, I know that not everyone will have access to a tractor tire.  But, there are a lot of junk yards that will give you them for free.  My tractor tire is 165 pounds and I am OBSESSED with it.  My favorite movement with the tire is tire flipping.  Begin in a kneeling position, with your hands placed under the tire, as you start to drive up, place your weight through your heels and lift up the tire with your hamstrings and glutes, not lower back.  If the tire is too heavy, drop down to a lighter size and work your way up.  Drive tire up to its side and with your core, push the tire over for one flip!  Continue over and over until fatigue! tire flip   Try one or all THREE of these moves this week!  I promise you, you will feel STRONG and POWERFUL!  Remember to use caution when beginning to weightlift.  DO NOT lift heavier than you are able!  Be mindful and work your way up!  Injuries are not fun! and Good LUCK!   BEAST MODE!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
