What are the best shoes for squats and deadlifts? Well, it depends.

Having the right training shoe can definitely make a difference to your comfort, strength and efficiency when you are undertaking squats and deadlifts at the gym.

A recent trend, though, has many lifters adopting a ‘monkey see’ attitude towards footwear. This isn’t ideal if you’re looking to increase your own individual performance.

Weightlifting Wraps & Straps - What's For Me?

For starters it is best we differentiate between the two. A wrap is used for support (knee's, elbows or wrists). A strap is typically used to wrap around a barbell, dumbbell or a bar like that from a lat pull down machine. These aid with grip. For example, when deadlifting you might find your grip fatigues before the muscle you are training does.

Happiness & Weightlifting

Hello Team Iron!


We were going through the archives and found this gem. It's a video by our man, Dr. Layne Norton. Here Layne explains why the notion of 'I'll be happy when (insert goal) is reached. Why happiness and success is a state of being. You must enjoy the process and have passion for the process in order to maintain consistent happiness & success.

This rings so true for anything in life, whether relationships, personal or business goals.  Enjoy the process, end the mentality of thinking you will only be happy once x or y occurs.

 

Best regards,

The Iron Tanks team
