HOW TO COMBINE POWERLIFTING AND BODYBUILDING - CHEST 🐵 I like to look like a bodybuilder, but perform like a powerlifter. You should never feel that you cant succeed in both disciplines! Balance is key.

So I started with a soft pause bench with my heels down (limits arch, but specific to comp rules). The soft pause means that you dont let the bar sink into your chest, you keep elastic tension through the pecs and triceps. This trains you to meet the bar with your chest, and prevents arch collapse. It also builds explosive power off the chest.
From there we go into bodybuilding volume. Specifically, we isolate ends of the pectoral's active range of motion. I do a lot of db flye variations to work the fully lengthened phase of the pec, and presses across the midline of the body to isolate the fully contracted position. I did a lot more than whats pictured here, hammer strength unilateral presses are amazing for this purpose. We work at the ends of the range of motion because thats where we are weakest, and where we have the most capacity for growth. 😎💪 #bodybuilding #amateurbodybuilding #powerbuilding #powerbodybuilding #ipf #gpc #chest #pecs #bench #howmuchyabench #gains #shreddedacademy #triceps #ifbb #npc #arms #massthetics #igfitness #igfit #igfitfam #rawpowerlifting #trainhard #trainharderthanme #ig_fitness_freaks #fitswag

@Regrann from @adam__rehab - OVERHEAD MOBILITY EXERCISE
PART 2
.
Pectoralis Major ➕ and Minor ➖
.
In our last post we focused on Lats and Teres Major coming from the 🔙 of the body. That is part 1 of this mobility sequence
.
Today the focus is on the front. These two muscles attach at the sternum and ribs and travel to the humerus and front of the scapula
.
🎥Part 1 - Self Myofascial Release
Grab a tennis ball 🎾or lacrosse ball and place it on your chest face down. Now wave your arms in the air like🙌 you just don't care 🎶. Seriously though, follow along from the video and do 5 reps with each movement then change the position 🎯 of the ball to different areas of your pecs. Repeat for 2 min
.
🎥Part 2 - 3D Dynamic Stretch
Find a wall or door frame and reach up high with your LEFT hand. Lunge with your LEFT leg forward and reach away with your RIGHT hand as you rotate your rib cage to the RIGHT .
Give me a 🙋 if you want part three of the mobility drill tomorrow, then we dive into strengthening 🏋️ and stability in your new range
.
Go PATS! 🏈
Who do you think is going to win today?
