In this episode, Alberto, Eric, and Brad discuss how powerlifting has changed over the past decade and how they coach their powerlifters differently than they used to.
What were the “dark days” of daily undulating periodization? What is the lost element of powerlifting? How do the coaches program differently for their athletes than they did five years ago? What key component of muscle growth is commonly insufficient in powerlifters?
