Training for Power Lifting | Steve Johnson

Video Text

I just want Steve Crush an eight hundred pound squat, right? It was nothing. He's an op atomic power lifter, He's told you, but he's blown it away. Science going through the roof So my fans probably want to know. How often do you squat? Heavy weight to get maximum out of strength is like a once a week heavy. Or do you have more frequent? It starts out, so the programming is structured in a way that starts out with value. First, I'm doing like to two a week, two days a week, spotting one heavy day, one light day for, like, speed repetitions on, then a CZ. The program goes on over weeks and weeks now under the Peking phase, about seven weeks off for my meat. So now I'm certain a peak in my strength programming, right? Morning, squatting once a week. Once. I'm clearly every seven days because I mean you hit like eight hundred pounds once a week. Actually, So he's doing like what I'm doing is, like triples and then working down, working up the way down on the raps. I'm going doubles, then, as let's go buy, those are going to single rap So actually, under pounds is off my program. And today I'm supposed to survive. But really good. Try a hundred for now, My coach, That number instead. Now, the next time I go a tithe until they meet, and then we'll back off for a rest about two weeks out of the load is what it is. What it is. Basically like active recovery. I'm going at a percentage of that Max week that the meet is where you just basically balls to the wall. You know, that's why I'm gonna let loose. I'm gonna try to be on something there. Wait kind of game, that off the progress that I've had over the weeks of training itself. Is there anything that you take like, three. Work out anything like help you get that mind muscle connection or that adrenaline man. Just nothing like good old music. But what we listening Tonto at Max Max Man Way be. That's the song. That's just like it. Just on a ship that goes through my life. It just it just speaks to me and I mean so just listening to it. And then, uh, I mean, Otto scoop a free workout in there too, You know, before I start my *** on basically on amino acids all day long on the high rep days. How many reps you do hire a day in the beginning? The Valium phase. You're maybe going a time. You're talking like straight program. Not like I'm not doing like hyper training. So my interest was not gaining more muscle mass games, much strength as possible. So there's a There's a new theory of, like squatting every day. I mean, that could be really hard on the joints. But if you keep the volume really low, you think that has any merit like one heavy set every day I got a friend that does that. And from what I understand how that works Response every single day. So one day I'll have you know one day I'll be a lighter, more Valium day or mix it up with a variation on the squad back squatty squatty. I don't really understand what everyday thing I tried it and I felt hilltop ship on a knee tendinitis and you know, I could squat really anymore. Like I want everybody I think is different. You know? I mean, like for me I need a longer restoration, especially when you're pushing Waits like that. I just time for the central nervous system, really slowed out. Kind of rest itself kind of hell itself. Back up so I could get back. Come back next week. Stronger is what I'm trying about. Your joints in your tendons and ligaments. You have to take anything to help those heels to take. Take a joint supplement. It's by my sponsors. Get usual nutrition on diesel joints. That's how I take. And then really, what I do, I got time tonight saying, like not in my knees, nothing else. It's more in the elbows and shoulders and that's wrong. You want to squat, squat, low bar position So the bar's really far back on that. Just wait more centered over my mid for when I'm squatting. More balance. Don't I have any problems with that? I'LL get a pair of tendonitis here there, but basically I knew recovery with Sameh Artie's pumping a dry doing stuff like that. You have your brother like you, take a deep breath and then go down sail when you're basically it's about raising your course. I can remain in the upright position because I don't want to take a big breath so that my chest rises. I wanna take a break, press on, my stomach goes out into about that's gonna race. My abdomen is gonna brace my lower back. A nice, stable spine on staying straight off as much as possible is a minute With that much weight forward or backwards way, it's gonna keep going. You know, we're gonna mess yourself up trying to muscle it back out. So you want to stay in light Technique is watching your high born and low born sport different weight wise. Like, what's my weight compared to my switch? The low bar like it's so much easier, right? Wait, just centered over your body differently. So when I high bar, have to activate more four muscles, stay straight up to keep me from going forward, you know? So the bar just keeps everything. Just center for me. It's just more stable on most power that their squat in a little bar stance. You can handle your weight easier that way. Didn't see where you put the about. You put the belt higher, lower. So what I do my belly buns around right here. I write it about inch above it. Yeah, And when I played when I breathe in a race right around *** my hair, that's where my stomach's pushing into my belt. And it just feels like the best stabilising point. What I wear to go, I feel like I could like my back is over here. Do you think that it takes special genetics to get the level of strength you have? What do you think that anybody can do it with the right training? I think anybody could do it with the right training. Definitely my coach, my own athletes and staff to, you know, get genetics always plays a role in everything. So, you know, Ronnie Coleman didn't look Ronnie Colman, you know, without the genetics, you know, I mean, on some of these guys, their strength athletes still like a bloody part like God Norwegian. I've done that. I might spend tax forsaken warrior. It's all about like the writing team with my logo. It's actually like you made all that, so I'm trying to stay on. It's It's one of my lovers right here. It's a battle action ***. Alright, Stoop the Viking. Thank you so much, Steve, I'm sure the audience is gonna frickin love this. It's always amazing when people share the information instead of holding into themselves to inspire others. I appreciate it and you're fired.
