One of them changes the music. All 3 then proceed to hop on the ellipticals. What do you do?New Lifter TipProgress or lack of progress are often the result of the individual lifter's effort and discipline. Before making drastic changes to your program and/or coach, look in the mirror and assess your effort and discipline.  Agree or disagree?New Lifter Tip #2Practice calming down and relaxing. Many new lifters get over excited for the entire duration of the competition. This is not necessarily bad while under the bar. The problem comes when there is no "off" switch when not under the bar. This can lead to extreme fatigue before the end of the meet.

Your last squat warmup felt really light and there are still 2 minutes left to change your squat opener. Should you increase your opening squat so that your total is projected 1st after openers?New Lifter TipDo not choose a coach based solely on their social media presence.  Good marketing does not make you a good powerlifting coach.  On the flip side, being a good marketer does not make you a bad powerlifting coach.

    Episode 84 (3/16/22) - Sam CalhounIntroductions: Sam Calhoun3x USAPL National Champion2x IPF Worlds Silver MedalistCurrently holds 67.5 kg American Record TotalCoaches in person at the Iron Asylum in Virginia and does Online Coaching https://www.instagram.com/sam.s.calhoun/https://samstrong500.com/Sam's Original PostThoughtsListener submitted scenario: I have a  wry experienced lifter (long time barbell and wrestling athlete) who has competed twice before.10 minutes prior to his session the lifter mis- placed his cell phone and has some anxiety  about being to find it and stay in contact with his wife. We search the warm up room and all of our gear bags but to no avail. We press forward with warm ups and head back to the tunnel to await our first squat. As a coach I tell him, we will find the phone  By all accounts he was primed and ready physically to go off for a big meet. Unfortunately what happened next wrecked the day. One of the National Level referees comes back into the tunnel and goes on a rant about how no white lights were being given out for squats this morning and how no lifter is getting remotely close to parallel much less to adequate depth and warns us (3 lifters out) that if we have questionable depth, we better make sure we push it further. As a coach I hear that as some guy giving advice, but for the lifter that was a major point of concern and he began to question his depth which ultimately led to him altering his form  creating an 0/3 bomb on squats due to compromised form and a lost cell phone. This then translated to bench where the mental disconnect is continued and we went 0/3. My question ultimately comes in two forms, how do you handle this situation as 1.) An Athlete/Competitor and 2.) As a Coach. .#PLSituation: The meet director of a meet you are competing in decides to bring in a band instead of a playlist.  They ask each lifter for input of which band to bring in. It can be any band from any era. What band would you choose to play at your meet and why? #NewLifterTip You've likely been eating clean leading into the competition. Immediately after weigh-ins is not the time to make up for it by eating a bunch of junk.Agree or Disagree?PrimeTime Ideas for NationalsFollow/Direct Message us @PLBalladsPodcast on Instagram & Facebook or email us at PLBalladsPodcast@gmail.comMore Information about the Podcast and Team Rohr Powerlifting: https://solo.to/plballadspodcastGet the Team Rohr Training App!The Powerlifting & Power Ballads Podcast is co-hosted by Josh Rohr and Lara Sturm and sponsored by Team Rohr Powerlifting - for all of your powerlifting coaching and meet day handling needs.

    Episode 76 (1/19/22)IntroductionsPLSituation  You coach a team of 20 lifters, competing at the State Meet. There is no limit to how many lifters you can list on the official team roster because only the team's 10 best scores will make up the total team points. If the team roster has less than 10 lifters, a single lifter can score points twice by being in 2 divisions (Open and Masters or Full Power and Bench Only). If a team has 10 or more lifters, a single lifter can only score once. Mathematically, it would be detrimental to the team points to list more than your top 9 lifters, entered in two divisions. While beneficial to the team points, this would mean leaving over half of your athletes off of the official team roster. Official rosters will be listed on the event website, in the lifters guide and in the state meet program.Do you include all of your team members or only the top 9?NewLifterTipSquat Depth:You are low enough when the top surface of the legs at the hip joint are lower than the top of the knees. It has nothing to do with hamstrings being parallel to the ground or any other factor. The only thing that matters are the two points mentioned above.
