Yvonne took to the powerlifts really well. She has a very good build for deadlifting, squatting and benching. We are now focused on developing her general strength and athleticism with a long-term eye towards preparing her for her first powerlifting meet.
While focusing on squatting, pulling and pressing she is also being slowly introduced to the Olympic lifts and their derivatives as well as a variety of conditioning and accessory lifts which are rotated regularly. The plan is to develop her physical capacities in a broad and general way without true specialization in the powerlifts, yet still keeping the powerlifts as her basic benchmark lifts.
Yvonne's recent bests:
back squat 150 lb
bench Press 95lb
overhead press 65lb
