ARE YOU LIFTING IN THE RIGHT WEIGHT CLASS???

The Height of the lifter for the right weight class is extremely important to achieve good competitive results. The height of the lifter needs to be appropiate for the right weight class. This well balanced ratio will result in better results.

Gaining body weight should be a well planned process keeping a good gain in muscle mass and controling the body fat compositon.

Our competitive athletes train in cycles of 12 weeks. The first thing we do is to measure the BFC and we expect the lifter to gain same weight by week 7 and lower the BFC a bit. Another control will be on week 10 and also week 12. Those controles of weight and BFC are done together with the tests of maximum lift we execute in that cycle.

We use this chart as reference (again there could be exceptions)
