As a competitive lifter, the right equipment is extremely important and can not only give you more enjoyment from your training sessions, but also a longer training life as an athlete. If you are a competitive weightlifter then I am sure you are well aware of the difference between an Eleiko bar and a 32mm powerlifting bar costing around £60. If you are like me then you would rather miss any technical work and just do pull and strength training based on how awful they feel.
Many people new to weightlifting find the front squat hard work. The bar chokes them and the elbows are difficult to get high causing the wrists to become painful. For most people a quick fix will be to address shoulder range and lat tightness. These simple movements can be greatly improved in just a few weeks with the right attention to movement limitations.
