I have been putting together a team for a powerlifting meet over the last few days and have told my gf this and asked her if she wanted to just come and hang out and watch - she said she couldn't this comp due to going to a design expo for uni - but she turned around and asked if she could do a comp later in the yr! - I was totally surprised and she seems really keen - she had never talked about anything like this before lol.
My Q is or looking for some advice - I have trained athletes, male powerlifters etc - but have never trained a girl or have even looked into training girls for powerlifting - is there anything I need to watch out for, are some exercises better suited to girls, squat stance, sumo grip etc etc.
She has not done mush training before so it will be pretty much starting from scratch, I was going to run a variation of a 5 x 5 program for the 1st 4 weeks, then depending on how she goes run a bit of a lower volume Sheiko program....
Any ideas, thoughts??
Oh and btw the comp is around 4 1/2 months away!
